Review: Riddle of the Labyrinth

The Riddle of the Labyrinth: The Quest to Crack an Ancient Code

The Riddle of the Labyrinth: The Quest to Crack an Ancient Code by Margalit Fox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Anyone interested in language, linguistics, archaeology, cryptology, or women’s history should pick up this book. Margalit Fox writes the obituary Alice Kober never had while at times her own commentary is trite and repetitive at times (she compares everyone in this book to Sherlock Holmes) the writing shines when she is documenting Kober’s work and life. Well worth reading.

I am happy to be ringing in the reading New Year with this book. It is so good! And if your library doesn’t own it (cough, cough) it’s only $1.99 as an ebook.
