    In 2007 I joined Goodreads and wrote reviews of some of the books that had most transformed me as a reader I have since over the years taken an absurd amount of geek pride that my review of this book is I think the most popular one And for everyone writing GET OVER YOURSELF in the comments as a response to my using my own little corner of the internet to tell a story about how my life as a writer and a Catholic and a woman was shaped by

    This is my favourite book about the Arthurian legend and I have read possibly than I can remember Marion Zimmer Bradley succeeded in breathing new life into the Arthurian saga and at the same time she didn't step too far away from the spirit of it Placing the emphasis on the fascinating female characters that shaped the fate of Arthur and of Camelot she created a monumental work that is now the basis on which most of us rate the works about

    The Arthur myth from the point of view of Morgaine le Fay pagan priestess Supposedly a feminist take on the old legends There is one main problem with this approach let's face it women's lives in the dark ages were pretty boring And rather th

    This is one of the few books that I hate I'm a feminist and I love King Arthur stories and The Mists of Avalon makes me vaguely nauseous I read the whole thing hoping it would get better and it didn't though there are a few good bits Overall I found it offensive to the Arthurian legends to history and to women and being a 15 year old girl w

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 An Unexpected Magick (The Draegan Lords, is
