This is a Richard and Judy recommended book that has received rave reviews. Personally, I did not think that the book was written well and could have greatly benefited from severe editing.

Its not a bad book, reasonably well written, and certainly well informed about the Cathars. (I'm mildly surprised that the Church hasn't been rumbling about this though). It's a touch slow in places, and could have done with tightening up a bit. Not a book to rave over, a useful holiday read.

To be sent to Vauxhall Crosser

Correction - Vauxhall Crosser has got a copy, so will be sent to calalilly

Picked up from the Post Office yesterday, it arrived while I was in Torquay for a few days having a break. I've got a couple of other ring books to read first.

I really enjoyed this book and didn't want to put it down once I'd started it and will be looking out for other books by Kate Mosse. Thank you Mytilus for letting me read it and sorry I took so long to get to it. Emailing MaurenHB for her address.

Arrived this morning, thank you.
I have 2 thickish ring books to read before I get to this (one of those times when they all arrive at once) but I promise I'll start this one as soon as possible - I'm looking forward to reading it :-)

I've just realised how long I have had this book, many apologies but a couple of other rings came first and then Christmas got in the way. I have started it now and should be ready to pass it on soon :-)

At least this was a quick, easy read but not well written and instantly forgettable I'm afraid. It lost pace a bit in the middle but I did want to find out how it ended, unfortunately that was a bit of a disappointment too. Not impressed.

I have Vespa's address so I'll post this on tomorrow.

Arrived safely today. Will get to it early next week hopefully

Received in the mail. Sorry about the mixup. I have one bookray ahead of it. Should get to it soon enough.

An enjoyable read, but like others I felt it was too long. I finished this last night on a 3 hour flight. I kept flipping to the back to see how many pages were left, impatient for the novel to end. I didn't think the story needed 700 pages of detail.

I also thought that the relationship between Alice and Will was under-developed. I know there was supposed history behind it all but it seemed to go from 0 to 100% instaneously.

Like meddyg said, it was a good holiday read. Certainly a good airport and aeroplane read.

Update (14/05/2007): Posted today.

My very kind neighbour took delivery of this for me this morning and handed over to me today.

For some reason I seem to have quite a few rings arriving at once. Will do my best to get to this soon.

I enjoyed this, it wasn't a great literary work maybe, but well sometimes you just want an interesting story with some reasonable research put into and this managed that. I do feel it could have been even better if it was pulled together more sharply and storylines that were hinted at were developed more adequately. Also, I have to agree with fushmush about the Will/Alice relationship. It seemed a little contrived like the happy ever after ending tagged on the end of a hollywood movie to give it that feel good factor.

Nevertheless it was still good fun :-)

Have just received this book and even managed to start reading the introductory notes.

Thanks to everybody and especially aubriel for my first ever bookring book. I look forward to reading it especially as I know that area of France from many holidays.
