• Any bookshelf would be graced by the presence of [Red Thread]… [it] ask[s] readers to surrender to the unpredictable pleasures of getting lost… playful and gorgeously written.

    Robert Douglas-Fairhurst, Guardian
  • A serious, substantial, scholarly and yet also highly personal book about mazes… Red Thread is a book to admire as much as to enjoy.

    Ian Sansom, Spectator
  • [Charlotte Higgins] is no ordinary author. Her thrillingly original book – it really is like no other – is itself a sort of maze of facts and thoughts, ancient tales and modern phenomena… on every page there is a sparkling idea or a fascinating piece of information. It is also beautifully writtena beautifully produced volume, full of colour illustrations of sculptures and paintings and tantalising maps of mazes.

    Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday
  • In this beautifully produced and richly illustrated book… Charlotte Higgins takes us on a fascinating meander through the art and literature of the last 2,500 years… After reading this book you will see labyrinths everywhere.

    Michael O’Loughlin, Irish Times
