I received these letters recently, and thought you would enjoy them as much as I did…

I have just read ‘Pillars’ which is one of the best books I have ever read, and I can’t think why I haven’t come across it before. Talk about great timing – just in time for the sequel to come out! I can’t wait to read it. Keep them coming – you write them and I’ll read them!

Hi Ken
I read all of your books over the last year. By coincidence I started with ‘Pillars’ and then read the rest in order of how you wrote them. Obviously I am a fan and recommend your books to anyone who asks me “what to read”. Looking forward to ‘World Without End’ and if you are ever in Toronto I would enjoy meeting you. Good luck in the upcoming launch! I know I will be reading it on the first day out.

Dear Ken,
I’ve read ‘POTE’ 6 times now and am about to start it again. I can’t get enough of it! Can’t wait for the sequel.

You stories are fantastic. You write like no-one else does. I read all your books and now I’m waiting for ‘World Without End’ to enjoy a new wonderful adventure… Thank you for giving me so much emotions!

Hi there
My name is Allison and I have read the first 200 pages of ‘World Without End’ as I got an advance copy from my husband Randall who is the book buyer at Kmart Australia. I have never read one of your books before but I just had to write and let you know that I love it. The characters are wonderful and the topic is so interesting. I will insist that he brings all your books home from now on and will enjoy sharing this book with my friends when I have finished it. I will also be reading ‘The Pillars of the Earth’.

Love your books, have read them all! Couldn’t wait for ‘World Without End’ to be published in English, so bought it in Italian instead! Loving it so far!


I look forward to your letters. Please write to me via the Contact page, and do see earlier letters

If you’ve read several of my books, you might enjoy matching the first line with the title, or guessing the working title
