Labyrinth

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. 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 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 present day involved in her story as she wanted to write it I loved reading about the Cathars Any enemy of the Crusades is a friend of mine Although come to think of it there wasn t a whole lot of detailed discussion about the Cathars in Labyrinth but I have been inspired to do a little reading on my own And that s been interesting
