    1. My husband had picked this up years ago on a whim but hadn t read it I m enjoying going through our combined shelves now, reading new to me books that I ve inherited by marriage I m used to knowing my shelves very thoroughly, so it s exciting to stumble upon intriguing tales I didn t know were in the house.What a gem I stumbled upon here This book is lovely, both visually and in terms of the storytelling The artwork is done by the incomparable Alan Lee of Lord of the Rings fame, and they re beau [...]


    2. So I picked up this book from a local used book store, mainly because of the Alan Lee illustrations and a passing interest in Arthuria It sat on my shelf waiting for at least a year, I think, mainly because its large size made it hard to read in all the locations I usually read books But the flu caught me this past December, so sitting on the couch with a large book on my lap seemed like a natural way to spend my time, when I wasn t deep in a fevered sleep.And wow, I was super impressed with thi [...]


    3. I came across this book many years ago and checked it out repeatedly Then I moved For years I couldn t remember its title or author, though I could tell you exactly where it was located in my school library on the far side of the ocean And then the internet was invented, and I tracked it down.Alan Lee s illustrations almost define the fantasy genre, in my opinion When I picture Camelot or druids, I m likely thinking of an image from this book The writing is also quite good, though some of the st [...]



    4. Read this book for the art, which of course will take readers back to Tolkien and the marvelous art Lee did for those works and for the films The stories are dense and beautifully written but not for late night reading way too much going on The foundation is Merlin though he isn t identified as such in the beginning who is sleeping, dreaming, on a moor under a huge rock, and the stories are his dreams Possibly not really for children.


    5. This doesn t read like YA The nine stories are dream like retellings of Arthurian legends and myths, and involve rather strange and wondrous twists I think the packaging cover detail threw me off quite a bit the rather cheesy drawing is quite jarring compared to the density of the tales, and did not quite prepare me for it.


    6. This was a wonderful collection of stories, but talented fantasy artist Alan Lee s haunting illustrations were really what made this book stick in my head for all those years since I first read it The illustrations are amazing The stories and illustrations are both perfect


    7. I love anything that has to do with the realm of King Arthur.Favorite quote Later she used her power to rescue a man she loved from enchantment, and married him No is known of her She too seems to have chosen her doom It was to become like other people, ordinary.


    8. ok, this is an awesome book that anyone that is into authurian writing must read not only are the stories great, but if you get the hardcover edition, there are the most remarkable pictures as well truly an awesome book.


    9. This book is beautifully written, yet the stories are often show paced and dreamy in tone I think it was a mistake by the publishers to present this as a children s book adults will better enjoy its subtleties.
