Sepulchre (The Languedoc Trilogy): Kate Mosse: : Books
The ending was anticlimactic so I was disappointed after such a long and tedious read. Thank goodness it’s over.
Literary Fiction Historical Fiction print. Seeing as I opted for spanish in school, I kind of felt like I was not privy to an inside joke. More broadly, what thematic role does music play in the novel? Characters contradiciting themselves frequently; there were many instances that suggested it wasn’t even proof read or edited correctly. The story bounces between present day and turn-of-the-century southern France in the Languedoc literally “language of Oc”, spoken there hundreds of years before.

It’s the very recognisability of its themes and language that signals to the mass of readers that this is a book “for them”.
Mosse is a master at descriptive prose.

A dual narrative, alternating between andSepulchre explores the supernatural world and those who try to bend it to their will. Of course, this may well be my own insecurity, but since they’ve both had, and are continually given, perfectly serviceable and non-intrusive descriptions saying the same thing before, it’s unnecessary purple prose.
