The New Oprah Book: The Pillars of the Earth

So is anyone going to read the new Oprah book, The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett? It's 900 pages long, but Oprah swears you'll be able to get through it. It takes place in medieval times or something which doesn't exactly appeal to me, but Oprah said it didn't appeal to her either. (Oprah this, Oprah that... do I sound like I'm in a cult?)

Anyway, she said it was one of those books that you don't want to end. She'd stay up until like two and three AM reading it and would pace around between chapters because it made her so nervous.* She really sold me on it.

I don't know if I'll be able to stay focused on it (Karyn's attention span=none), but I'm thinking about giving it a try and wanted to know if anyone else was going to also. Let me know!

*The movie "Maria Full of Grace" made me pace. I stood up while watching it because I was so nervous.
