    One thought on “O Labirinto Perdido

    1. Beth

      As I was reading this I greatly disliked it at some times and was really into it at other times. It was hard to get into, but overall I liked it more than not. Mosse's writing made me cringe at times. So much unnecessary description. (Who did her editing? They should be ashamed.) And the passiveness of characters telling each other the story while the reader "listens in" bugged me. I would have preferred just to have the historical storyline. But I understand why the author needed to have the pr [...]

      Book Review3.5 of 5 stars to Labyrinth, the first book in a three part series entitled "Languedoc," written in 2005 by Kate Mosse. I enjoyed this book. Many people felt it was a bit boring and inconsistent. It was one of the earlier books I read in the adventure genre, around the time I got hooked on the Da Vinci code book and series. Ultimately, I love this genre when you go back and forth in time periods, cover adventures, try to connect ancient peoples to someone current, find devastating sec [...]

      For a long time, The Da Vinci Code put me right off books about the Cathars or the Holy Grail, so I was hesitant to pick up Kate Mosse's book. Still, I gave this book a chance, as I'd been impressed with Kate Mosse's work as an interviewer on the BBC's Radio 4. I'm glad that I read it. This book focuses on the Cathars, a gnostic sect centered in the Pays d'Oc, (modern southwestern France). Several legends have been told about the Cathars, including that they practiced ancient mystical rituals an [...]

      Oh the inner turmoil. Did I enjoy Labyrinth by Kate Mosse or not? Hold on what Kate Moss the supermodel lady has written a book?No, Kate Mosse the author, not THE Kate Moss come on, keep up people.My two inner voices have clashed over this story and so I've given this book a middling 3 out of 5. Here is what my chatty inner voices are bickering over:LUMPEN ADVENTURE SEEKING BOOK LOVING WEEKEND SOFA SURFER BRAINBrilliant. Archaeology ladies get into all sorts of European adventure hi-jinx with a [...]

      I've read a lot of books on the Holy Grail in my time (some may say an obsessive amount, I prefer to think of myself as thorough) from Le Morte D'Arthur to The Da Vinci Code and sadly this falls into the latter category. The main difference between Kate Mosse and Dan Brown is that Kate appears to have done her research. Her story's relationship to legend and even actual historical events is a little less tenuous that Brown's, her grasp of English is infinitely better (not hard), as is her grasp [...]

    6. Lisbeth

      This pulled at me and repulsed me simultaneously. As a medievalist and amateur historian, I was addicted to learning how Mosse laid out this Grail fantasy. She treats the Cathar subjects well, clearly having spent at least a few hours on researching the matter. My repulsion was, however, centered on the regrettably mediocre writing. Mosse relies on heavy exposition and tosses adjectives and adverbs in like my grandmother does salt. Her characters are poorly developed, largely one-dimensional fo [...]

      2.5 stars From the start I had a love-hate relationship with this book. One minute I was excited the next I was bored out of my mind.Review atedwardsghostengine.wordpress.

      I read this book some time ago, and have recently been reminded of its sorry existence by the fact that a dramatisation is due to be screened in the not so distant future. Personally, I am proud of having made to the end where so many others fallen in the effort. The writing was diabolical, the plot completely over-blown and all over the place, and the characters were pitifully one-dimensional. Although, I do think it takes a special kind of genius to come up with something this bad, I really do [...]

      This was a bed time read; the time when I will read things I otherwise may not. In this case historical fiction in the guise of yet another (yawn) grail quest. All these medieval storytellers (Chretien de Troyes; yes I do mean you!) have a lot to answer for. This is split between early 13th century France at the time of the Cathars and France in 2005; the main protagonists being Alais in 1205 and Alice in 2005 (Of course there isn't a link of any sort; familial, psychic or anything!!!!) . The ba [...]

      Most of the other reviewers have compared Kate Mosse's "Labyrinth" favorably to The Da Vinci Code. I didn't read The Da Vinci Code, but given that it was impossible to avoid or ignore, I understand both books tackle some similar themes. The strongest aspect of "Labyrinth" is that the plot is well-paced and engrossing. The back-and-forth between the medieval era and the present day generally works nicely, and the transitions are smooth, or make sense in their placement and timing. Most of the cha [...]

    11. Hannah

      Rating Clarification: 2.5 StarsHad potential to be a thrilling, page-turning read, but the story never seemed to take off. Instead, both the present and past plotlines meandered on with short moments of good suspense, then with abrupt stops containing filler that did nothing to advance the mystery. The ending, when it finally arrived, was anticlimatic.2.5 stars because Mosse can write a lovely sense of place. Made even me want to visit southern France, especially the medieval walled castle city [...]

      "We carry the past within us, in our bones, in our blood," I went into this book thinking about how long and historical it looks, But on the contrary I was captured from Page 1. Kate Mosse really challenged me as a reader, to expand my horizon from my normal books to Historical Fiction and by God I'm glad, because this bookIt was so thrilling jumping back in time and the beautiful scenery that is Paris I loved this book

    13. Nanna

      The book, for me, really developted in the last 300 pages. It took me a long time to get past the first part of the book (mainly because of all the not so important descriptions of everything), but after that an amazing and mysterious story was created, which was what I expected when I started to read the book. I would love to give it five stars, but because of the first part I must give it four.

    14. Alex Telander

      LABYRINTH BY KATE MOSSE: If only Kate Mosse had published her novel not in 2006, but shortly after the astonishing success of the Da Vinci Code, it perhaps would’ve received the literary respect it deserves, instead of coming last in a slew of novels involving the subjects of the Holy Grail, the Knights Templar, and what they mean in the present day. The quote on the back of the paperback edition from the Kirkus Review really says it all: “A quickly paced adventure that wears its considerabl [...]

    15. Sarah

      This book is too long, too slow and takes itself way too seriously! I got about halfway through the book and i was still waiting for something to happen! The author was still developing the characters 200 pages into the book.This book had the potential to be historical fiction, suspense or romance and the wuthor's wrtiing style leaned a little too close to the romance genre for my tastes. Her characters were too typical and too perfect. They were either perfect good people or perfect villians an [...]

    16. Nicole

      This book isn't very good. It's poorly written and badly edited. The story is okay, but you have to fight through moments of nausea, sadness and fury to reach the final 300 pages where it almost becomes interesting but then becomes embarrassing again. By the time I reached the end of the book, I was so bored that I speed-read until I could finally call it a day. There are grammatical errors and anachronisms that I found really irritating (for example, references in 1209 to 'Saint Francis' when h [...]

    17. Laurie

      This was very disappointing, it's at least 250 pages too long and the writing leaves much to be desired. The chapters in the past are much better than the ones in the present because things actually do happen and the history of the Cathars & daily castle life in the 1200s is interesting. It starts off intriguing and the landscape descriptions towards the end are quite lovely, but I wasted way too much time on this one. I also thought it was strange to see Mosse's next book looks & sounds [...]

    18. Ann

      I had hopes for this: massive bestseller in the UK, feminist retelling of the Grail legend, shuttling between the 13th and 21st centuries, lots of sex and swords -- promising! Unfortunately, Mosse only seemed able to display her legit historical chops and obvious devotion to France's little-known historical nooks through a poorly-edited vomitorium of words -- the writing isn't bad, but there's too much of it, and turning a page knowing nothing is going to happen on the next one is a pretty defea [...]

    19. Renee P

      I thought this was a really crap book. I feel like she only set it in France because she is enamored with the language, which she uses way too often. To justify this, Mosse stuck in a lot of explanation for "Why France?" that didn't make all that much sense. All the surprises the author had in store were painfully obvious, and she used cliches to describe everything. All the women had beautiful legs (shapely, tan, thin, milky, whatever- they were gorgeous). Almost all of the characters were stat [...]

    20. Sheila Thoburn

      I have to reluctantly admit that I bought this book (at a thrift store) mainly because of the title and cover page. I was intrigued by the idea of an historical fiction book geared towards adults. But after reading the first two chapters I threw it away. I am not certain why as I don't remember any specific details. I do remember that I thought it was better written than many New York Times best sellers but that it wasn't for me.

    21. Alexandra

      Oh this book. OH, this book. Would i recommend this book? No. No I would not. Oh, dear lord, it was dire. I found so many problems with this book but I've forgotten some of them because of how long this book goes on for. That's one of the problems, by the way. The author tells, she recounts, to a degree that you don't always need. At the same time, she also skipped some things that could have done with a fuller explanation.The french everywhere was a bit jarring. I know Parfait as a food. Didn't [...]

    22. Tiffany

      Like some of the other reviews, there were times I liked the story and there were other times where I was just down right bored. The story line drew me in - two different lives were connected by history yet born centuries apart. Yet, there were several loose ends. Why did the father hate Guilhem du Mas? And if he disliked him so much, why would he allow his daughter marry him? Then in the future, I suppose when all was forgiven, why did Mosse not include the story line of Alais' rescue and the t [...]

      Book Description from In this extraordinary thriller, rich in the atmospheres of medieval and contemporary France, the lives of two women born centuries apart are linked by a common destiny. July 2005. In the Pyrenees mountains near Carcassonne, Alice, a volunteer at an archaeological dig stumbles into a cave and makes a startling discovery-two crumbling skeletons, strange writings on the walls, and the pattern of a labyrinth; between the skeletons, a stone ring, and a small leather bag. Eight h [...]

    24. Liz

      This book combines all of the elements that seem to have become the rage for adventure/thriller fiction within the last few years. A Templar-esque secret society, mysterious archaeological discoveries, and drawn out cookie-cutter action scenes make up one half of this novel. the other half takes us back to medieval France where events that are the precursors of the modern story take place. The historical part is far more interesting, seeing as how the modern part consists of hardly anything but [...]

    25. Kristen

      The inside cover stuff instantly intrigued me. I'm all about mysterious/secret, lesser-known histories. And the story of the Grail is one of the most well-known of the lesser-known histories. Or even myths. While this one doesn't go into my favorite theory, it's such a page turner.You learn of both Alice and Alais in alternating chapters, and I really have to give the author credit, for both the creativity and the amount of research that went into this book. The language, the history. Truly amaz [...]

      Labyrinth kept me reading in bed under a nice comfortable duvet for many nights. I love the transition between the two time periods. It was done with finesse.

    27. Maribel

      Although I was a little dissapointed by some stinted writing and bad editing, Labyrinth still had me sitting on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what is going on. The characters tend to be two dimensional but they draw you in nonetheless. Ms. Mosse sometimes went too far with certain details (Noubel's profusive sweating - what is that about? too much info fer sure, and the sex scenes seemed to have been copied & pasted from a harlequin novel) and then did not give enough detail where [...]

    28. Melindam

      My Pays D'Oc for an editor!!!It is the biggest bunch of painful cliches over 800 pages of excruciating read. I am still amazed at myself that I actually finished it.Apart from the book being mind-numbingly boring, clumsily written, inconsistent, and in serious need of editing, what irritates me the most that it is pretentious. It is pretending to be a one-of-a-kind, refined historical fiction with deep meaning. Instead it is a humdrum, uninspiring adventure-romance story with one-dimensional cha [...]
