Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett
I bought the book 15+ years ago and its been sitting on my to-read shelf, unread, because I'd look at how thick it was and say to myself, "I don't want to spend that much time on this one." Then after I had watched the first two hours of the TV miniseries. I decided I wanted to read the book first.
At this same time, I was hiding in the corner from the actual writing of my work in progress, Bon Secour. Then I read Pillars of the Earth and I said to myself, "There is no way in God's green earth that you can write like this."
Of course, if I could, maybe they'd pay me $40,000,000 like Forbes reported that Follett made last year.
