Down The Book Cubbyhole

The Geeky Adventures of a Bookish Girl

Labyrinth — Kate Mosse

14975

I was glad I already finished this book. I have been actually ignoring it for almost three years. Why? Maybe because the book is too thick, maybe because the book cover doesn’t attract me that much, or maybe because I just hate the fact that it is being compared to Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code, which is by the way one of my favorites. Either ways I don’t know. However, after years of brushing it off, I finally failed into doing so. I have mixed feelings for the book, but more to the point of appreciation than dislike. I was just irritated at the first; let’s say 200 or 300 pages, because at that verge of the story, characters were still being introduced and the suspense books mostly have at that point doesn’t seem to arrive. But because I always finish what I started, reading goes on … and on … and on … until boredom already struck me. But still I didn’t stop. And the more I proceeded, the more I was intrigued. And alas! I finally got what I was looking for. What I don’t understand is why lengthen the unnecessary descriptions? While the suspense and most important details were fitted into the last few pages. I would have just preferred to have the historical storyline. But yeah, I understand that the present should be presented much like the past have been.

I may have said quite more about what I hate, but despite of those, the book is really good if I were to judge my excitement while reading the few remaining pages. So maybe I’ll just have to stick with that.

If someone has to ask who my favorite character is, it would definitely be Sajhe. His character is the most memorable to me and he is the perfect definition of a heroic figure, never afraid to take risks to protect the people he loves and what he believes in. I just feel bad for him because the girl he loves doesn’t love him the way he does—as a brother, yes, but more than that, no. Moreover, what I want to know is that, does this Holy Grail really exists? Books about it may be just fictions, but has anyone ever wonder if it’s true? Would the idea just appear out of thin air? Does it really prolong life, or more importantly, grant eternal life? No one knows.

  1. I do not even understand how I ended up here, but I assumed this submit was good. I don’t recognize who you’re but certainly you are going to a famous blogger in the event you are not already. Cheers!

  2. Thank you. The compliment was highly appreciated!
