This book has an interesting premise and a different take on the whole grail story. However, it is a real slog. Several times I considered abandoning it, but I did get through it. I appreciate the jumping back and forth in time motif, but the addition of a very convoluted story line kept me confused. The periodic use of untranslated French was also an issue. There was some attempt to give a rough translation, but it could have been handled better. I am not very familiar with the history of that time and place, and I suppose I learned something, but having to constantly process the new information and keep track of the confusing plot elements made for a slow read.

An excellent old-fashioned well-written story. Perfect balance between past and present, great pace, well drawn characters.. A great read.

Of course, the book is better than the movie. I read this book several years ago and the decided to watch the TV movie. The only similarity was the title and a few names. I had to reread the book to remind myself of the good story. The author;s other books are also very enjoyable. She is good at employing suspense and mystery.

AN EXCEPTIONAL READ. MUCH, MUCH BETTER THAN THE TV MINISERIES. DEFINITELY WORTH HANGING IN THERE AND FINISHING THE 500+ PAGES.

I just could not get into this book. I gave up after a few chapters. After reading some of the other comments though, I may give it another chance.

A good read, although I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as her "Sepulchre" -- seems to lose the thread of the story several times throughout, but still deserving of being read.

Very intense; it makes you keep reading until the end. It was interesting how everything ended up, but I won't share that (no spoilers here!)

Ridley and Tony Scott's Scott Free Productions and Tandem Communications, who partnered on the TV adaptation of Ken Follett's The Pillars of the Earth, "are heading back to the dark days of the Crusades and Cathar massacres in France for Labyrinth, a TV miniseries adaptation of Kate Mosse's international bestseller," Variety reported. The four-hour event miniseries is being adapted by Adrian Hodges (Primeval). Labyrinth will shoot in southern France this fall for a spring 2012 delivery.
