Publisher's Summary

Los Pilares de la Tierra es la obra maestra de Ken Follett y constituye una excepcional evocación de una época de violentas pasiones. El gran maestro de la narrativa de acción y suspense nos transporta a la Edad Media, a un fascinante mundo de reyes, damas, caballeros, pugnas feudales, castillos y ciudades amuralladas. El amor y la muerte se entrecruzan vibrantemente en este magistral tapiz cuyo centro es la construcción de una catedral gótica. La historia se inicia con el ahorcamiento público de un inocente y finaliza con la humillación de un rey.

AMAZING book and narrator!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I read this book in english and decided to listened to the spanish version. AMAZING narration! Jordi Boixaderas does an amazing job telling the story, playing all the different characters and this makes the book even better. I do recommend it.
Please Audible! Can we have more narrations by Jordi Boixaderas in the future? Perhaps, the saga of Pillars of the Earth (World Without End) in spanish????

Great for Language Comprehension Practice

I like to listen to books in other languages for language practice.

This works best if it is a book that I have already listened to/read in English,
as then the material is more familiar.

For new languages, I will often try to listen to a book in parallel:
say, 15 minutes of English, then 15 minutes of the other languages, etc.
As of yet, there is a fairly limited selection of foreign language audiobooks available in the U.S. store, and an even smaller selection that are available in both English and a variety of other languages.

(And, for some reason, the Spanish ones seem often to be abridged, which makes them much less useful for this type of "rosetta stone" parallel listening practice.)

But it is slowly getting better.

Congratulations to Audible for slowly increasing its foreign language material,
and here is hoping that it will continue to do so.

And perhaps some books in Mandarin and Arabic also?
