    My final book of 2017 I did not think I would finish it before the end of the year I started it back on October 1st and it was slow going I often found myself not reading it for days at a time It really wasn’t capturing my interest But with a week to go in 2017 and about 300 or so pages left I buckled down and finished

    Hmmm I would like to see the mini series to this book I felt it was a good book although it did get boring at times or maybe it was just me I loved reading about the history The most I have ever known about Arthur and the gang was through my show Merlin The ending was really sad to me 😕 But it was excellent as well if that makes any sense Happy Reading Mel ❤️

The Mists of Avalon

Here is the magical legend of King Arthur vividly retold through the eyes and lives of My final book of 2017 I did not think I would finish it before the end of the year I started it back on October 1st and it was slow going I often found myself not reading it for days at a time It really wasn t capturing my interest But with a week to go in 2017 and about 300 or so pages left I buckled down and finished it at around 815 on December 31stYou might think that my opinion of this book will not be stellar considering it was slow going About a week ago when I committed to finishing it before the end of the year that was where I thought it would end up too However the story really came together for me and I actually uite enjoyed the storytelling It is indeed a large book and uite a commitment but if you love fantasy and Arthurian legend it is worth checking outIn some of my discussions with my book friends we were trying to figure out what Bradley was going for with this book Having finished I am not sure it is much clearer Here are a couple of topics that came up freuentlyFeminism If she was going for the feminist viewpoint why are pretty much all the female characters unlikable and devious throughout the book Some of them do come around but it seems to make women generally seem either sneaky or annoying Christianity vs Paganism What amazed me the most about this was that many said they did not remember the opposing religious viewpoints from the book when they read it that seemed to be the main point of the story Reading up on Bradley it sounds like she was a practicing Pagan so it would make sense that she might want to bring this discussion in but it seemed uite repetitive after a while It does definitely come into play with the overall resolution of the plot but I am thinking if you don t like reading debates on religion on Facebook you probably wouldn t want to read 876 pages of it eitherFinally I can say that my overall feelings about this book were skewed by what I found out about the life of the author when I was partway done with the book I won t go into it here but if you Google her or check out her Wikipedia page you will see what I am talking aboutSummary Many will enjoy this book It is a big commitment Some subject matter may be controversial and preachy but some really good storytelling The Forgotten Memoir of John Knox up too However the story really came together for me and I actually The Illusionists uite enjoyed the storytelling It is indeed a large book and Planet of the Bugs uite a commitment but if you love fantasy and Arthurian legend it is worth checking outIn some of my discussions with my book friends we were trying to figure out what Bradley was going for with this book Having finished I am not sure it is much clearer Here are a couple of topics that came Fishes of the Open Ocean up freuentlyFeminism If she was going for the feminist viewpoint why are pretty much all the female characters Out of Bounds (Boundaries, unlikable and devious throughout the book Some of them do come around but it seems to make women generally seem either sneaky or annoying Christianity vs Paganism What amazed me the most about this was that many said they did not remember the opposing religious viewpoints from the book when they read it that seemed to be the main point of the story Reading Grass, Sky, Song up on Bradley it sounds like she was a practicing Pagan so it would make sense that she might want to bring this discussion in but it seemed Otter Chaos!
