  • ARTHUR - A NEW TREATMENT OF THE LEGEND

    Another treatment of the Arthurian legend. About as dark as some of the others, although certainly different. Lancelot is not so nice and Gallahad is no longer his son. I rather felt that Merlin was depicted as a Gandorf with a similar personality. I can easily see Sir Kenneth McKellar playi g the role. Cornwells battle depictions ard always good and he does hold back on the savagery of those times. While I don't feel the same attraction I did for his Graille trilogy involving Thomas the archer, I will read the full trilogy, just to see how he wraps up the legend. I cannot imagine how Derfel will transform from a warrior lord and Merlin disciple, into a Christian monk. Bernard Cornwell's tales are never dull and his characters are always strongly depicted giving one a sense of closeness with them.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • An enjoyable read

    If you like historical fiction you will like this. It has all the hallmarks of Bernard Cornwell books. Lots of blood and guts, love and treachery.

  • Arthurian Legend

    Good a start as any. The Arthurian legends are hard to prove, any factual suggestions are only as good as Archeology can prove to any skeptic. I enjoy this interpretation as it is more closer to the known civilisation in Engaland in the time frame generally accepted by scholars. Realistic descriptions of Celts, Saxon, Jutes, and Angles and the "left overs" of the Roman Levies that stayed behind in the 5th Century AD. Great yarn.

    Thanks for your feedback!
