Labyrinth
Labyrinth | Kate Mosse
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. Eight hundred years earlier, on the eve of a brutal crusade that will rip apart southern France, a young woman named Alais is given a ring and a mysterious book for safekeeping by her father. The book, he says, contains the secret of the true Grail, and the ring, inscribed with a labyrinth, will identify a guardian of the Grail. Now, as crusading armies gather outside the city walls of Carcassonne, it will take a tremendous sacrifice to keep the secret of the labyrinth safe.

My son Leo loves choosing books for me to read off my shelves. His expression kinda sums up how I‘m coping with the summer holidays!!! 😬#ayupaugust #crymeariver

mdm139 My boys love picking for me too. And I love picking for them so we have a deal in my house. For every book I pick for them they pick one for me. It makes them less resistant to trying books I enjoyed when I was young. 6mo

In 1209 a girl was given a mystery book by her father, claiming the secret of true grail.
In 2005, Alice Turner discovers two skeletons in a forgotten cave. Realizing she disturbed something that was meant to remain hidden.
I found this to be a good read, really enjoyed it

1/5⭐ Sad I didn't enjoy b/c the hardbacks are so pretty. Many 1D POVs w/ no apparent purpose. Info overload w/o knowing what matters. Many long-winded passages. E.g.:
Alais: *dramatically insists on speaking w/ her father*
Father: What's wrong?
A: *silence*
F: Are you hurt?
A: ...
F: Do you need help?
A: ...
F: I can't help if you don't talk.
A: ...
If a scene drags at 1.8 audio speed, something's wrong w/ the pacing. #projectTBR #projectnew

I didn‘t enjoy this book at all but I don‘t want to write a long thing about how awful it was - it really didn‘t suit me at all, but I don‘t think that makes it a terrible book just not what I wanted it to be. I normally love books like this (I unashamedly loved The Da Vinci Code and I adore The Name Of The Rose) but something didn‘t click with this one at all. Glad I finished it but probably won‘t read the sequel unless it‘s very cheap

TrishB I loved this - but didn‘t like either of the others you‘ve named! Differing views 👍🏻 1y

Really struggling to get on with this one... I never bail on books but I‘m frustrated by how unrealistic I find all the characters and how dry all the historical detail is. I‘ve been so unenthusiastic about reading it I just haven‘t been listening to audiobooks at all. Turned speed up to 3x so I can speed through and see if it gets better

AceOnRoam 3x hehehe. Chipmunk Punk. But sometimes you gotta speed it up!! 1y
Emilymdxn @AceOnRoam im normally pretty good at not losing any detail with it on fairly fast speeds but I like to really crank it up when I‘m in ‘just get through it‘ mode 1y

Over halfway through. Finding it a bit sluggish though. The history elements are interesting, but I‘m pushing through hoping that the storyline picks up or I may just abandon this one.

BookishTrish I bailed... always wondered if I should‘ve stuck it out. #readingvicariously 2y
Tianarose @BookishTrish I‘m torn... I may end up bailing too, especially consider I have so many other good reads waiting. But I‘m 3/4 done, so I may stick it out. (edited) 2y
Tianarose @BookishTrish I actually finished it! Yay! Once everything came together it wasn‘t half bad but the fact that it didn‘t really pick up til the last 100 pages or so was quite a let down. 2y

Need to leave in 10 minutes if I want to catch the bus to fetch my daughter from school. So I put my book down. Didn't notice the cat that immediately snuck onto my lap. And now?

Chapter 6 and now I get to the part where I want to continue reading. It was a slow start for me.

Well, either I'm going as a French forest with tall trees, wild boar and lynx, or I'll be a French quarry worker with the usual pale skin. That last bit doesn't make sense, even in the early 13th century working outside would get you a tan; probably constant tan/leathery skin.

Hmm? Will go with the forest then. 😀

Lindy @julesG I know! So ordinary, except I still have to find out what a body-warmer is. Also, by that page in the novel, the missing girl would have outgrown the clothes she was wearing when she disappeared, so that would be an interesting costume challenge. 2y

It took me a minute to find a book on my shelf that started with the first letter of my name that I've been wanting to read a long time... This has been sitting on my shelf forever and I've been wanting to read it for probably just as long... I initially put it off cause the series wasn't complete when I got this book... and then I put it off because each book is so long! Maybe this will be read this year, we'll see! #funfridayphoto
