5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Misfit TOP 500 REVIEWER on Jan. 26 2007
Format: Paperback
It was alright, reasonably entertaining, just nothing to write home and all your friends about. I did enjoy the history and scenes from southern France, but I wish the author had kept the story in the 13th century and skipped the stuff from 2005. I still haven't gotten around to reading the DaVinci code, so I can't make comparisons as other reviwers have.

If you want to read more about this period of french history, the cathars, knights templar and the grail, try Elizabeth Chadwick's Daughters of the Grail. I could not put it down. It is currently only available used in the US, but the author has recently rewritten and republished the book in the UK and is available on Amazon UK now. Hopefully it will be available in the US soon, as the used paperback is quite spendy (although worth it).

If you're set on reading this, save your money and get it from the library first. Then if you absolutely love it buy it. JMHO.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Bernie Koenig TOP 100 REVIEWER on Oct. 10 2005
Format: Hardcover
Thisis a great novel which works on many levels or labyrinths. On one level it is a great adventure story. On another level it is a great historical novel. I learned more about this period in France than I ever knew. I must learn more about the Cathars.
On a third level one sees how the good old Catholic Church was an expansionist political institution which accepted no difference of opinion.
What makes this novel great is that all levels work together, which makes the historical parallels so compelling.
And there are a few great surprises along the way.
A truly satisfying book which can probably stand up to numerous re-readings.

I read this book while on holiday in France and while I was not near Carcassone this particular trip - it was still an interesting historical look at this medieval city. good plot line

I really enjoyed the premise and the plot of Labyrinth and loved the double time line of the story and characters. I found the writing a bit awkward, but once I got into it, I found it to be a fun read. I will try another one!

This book brings home a very dark period in history of France and the Catholic Church as the backdrop for a riviting and moving story. I love this book and keep coming back to it when I feel the need of a good read.

Labyrinth was so captivating I could hardly put it down. It had to do with a mysterious sect of Christianity from the past and another sect that was trying to wipe them out and possess their mystical powers, centered around a labyrinth. Ms. Mosse eases into the story with a present day archaeological dig (which grabbed my attention right away) and proceeds to weave the story between characters in medieval times and their counterparts/descendents in the present. By the end of the tale, when I saw the walking tour she added at the back of the book for the real-life medieval town, Languedoc, France, where the story takes place, I knew it was a place I was going to want to visit and I knew I would want to "do the tour."

I enjoyed this book very much, it made me want to revisit Carcassonne and the other places mentioned in the book. There is so
much we don't know about the Cathars and that period of history. Kate Moss made me want to know more, what more can you ask from a well written book.
