I'm a little slow to the game. I know this book came out a while ago, but I am just reading it now. It's a book about the building of a cathedral in the middle ages. Sounds simple, but the story is intriguing. It's not too often that you are absolutely convinced by an author that the characters are real and you are a part of the story. The story line is fascinating. It's the kind of book that gives you a stomach ache when you start to see the demise of one of the characters. Like in the movie The Never Ending Story I recently watched with the girls, I have found myself talking out loud to the characters in the book. It is over 1000 pages long, so I have been busy. It's funny how when you find an amazing book like this everything else goes on hold for a while. At least that is how it is for me. What's the best book you've read lately?
