Time and Time Again (2014) 4 stars

Enjoyable read

4 stars

I’ve always loved time travel stories but did find this one quite unique as to its construct, and some interesting twists like the unexpected happening about 30% of the way through during the train journey. The philosophical takeaway is that altering something in the past does not mean history just happens in a similar way. Lots of other variables change. Even just buying a flower on the street can introduce a small tweak that changes things.

The pillars of the earth (1990, Signet) 4 stars

A really enjoyable read

5 stars

It’s a long time since I struggled to put a book down. More than once I just had to continue reading into the early hours to find out what happened next.

This book was a roller coaster of emotions and events that highlighted the violence, greed, passions, revenge of the main protagonists. It also really portrayed the ebb and flow of power and influence that royalty and religion had against each other, as well as the poor peasants who were caught in the middle.

A really enjoyable read and I can see why this book is one of Ken Follett’s all time best sellers.
