This review is from: Labyrinth (Paperback)
I had hig hopes for this novel, but unfortunately found it very dull. It's much too long, and although the parallel structure of modern and medival stories was one of the things that attracted me to the novel in the first place, I ended up finding the jumps in time rather irritating. There's far too much description too, as when a character walks through a market and everything, absolutely everything, is described, over several pages. On a positive note, it's good to see a novel with female protagonists.
