sorry but this book SUX!
on October 17, 2001
I had high hopes for this book, because I had heard all this good stuff about it and it SUX!
I read about 200 pages of it and then I just dropped it flat. I completely lost interest in the first 50 pages or so but I was forcing myself to read more in case it got better later on, some books do u know? Well, that never happend.
A lot of the reviews discuss the problems the book had with Chrisianity and such, which is cool, but my main problem with the book wasn't with the plot or the message/opinion's of the authur, it was that I hated most of the characters. All the characters that were supposed to be really cool in the real king aurthur story were really mean, horrible, backstabbing, immature ppl in this story which just totally ruined the real Aurthur story for me. I guess that's supposed to be the genius of the book or something, that the ppl are real and cruel instead of idealized creatures, but the ppl in this book are too stupid and mean to even identify with. They aren't making mistakes, they are intentionally ruining their lives and blaming it on someone else. Nothing about the characters was inspirational or redeeming once you got to know them, blah :P Read this book for fun if that's your kind of thing, but don't expect anything great from it.
