I couldn't stand to wait-I had to buy it and read it immediately.  I loved it -definitely a keeper for me.  Enjoy!

Woo-Hoo for you! I actually think that I had the second spot in line so I should be in first place now. Yay! I almost bought this one with my birthday giftcard yesterday, but decided not to since I was so close to the front of the line.

Let us know what you think of it!

It's the sequel that really isn't.  I don't think it will matter at all whether you have read Pillars of the Earth-since this one takes place like 200 years later and there are only brief mentions of the characters from Pillars of the Earth.   It's really a totally different story, about all the people of the town, not just concentrating on the builder.
