    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 book, there were a dozen other women respondi

    OK I admit, when I told my college Arthurian Lit professor that I d read and enjoyed this book, he proceeded to give me a quick before the next class comes in lecture about how Marion Zimmer Bradley s interpretation skewed wildly from the genre.But I don t care It s a difficult book long and utterly depressing, but it takes the first in depth look at both women and the pagan Celtic religion of Britain, which Christianity usurped around that time Evil sorceress Morgan Le Fay is transfered i

    Good lord, I haven t ever hated a book as much as this one.I picked up The Mists of Avalon because I really love Nordic myths, and usually any stories about King Arthur Everyone seems to adore this book even my librarian told me that this was a really good Arthurian tale Well, it s not It s horrible.First, let me say how turned off I was by all the bashing and hating there was of Christianity And I m saying this as the atheist that I am I don t believe in God, yet that doesn t mean I am n

    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 than break out of this mold with strong female characters, Bradley talks a lot about spinning, weaving, and having babies The female characters are either contemptible or irritating, or both The male characters are cardboard Arthur is as heroic as a l

    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 King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Tabl

    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 who liked fantasy novels did nothing to change this opinion.

    There is no such thing as a true tale Truth has many faces and the truth is like to the old road to Avalon it depends on your own will, and your own thoughts, whither the road will take you Again, I feel the need to put my thoughts down about some of the books that changed my life and made me into the guy I am.Those who know me just one tiny bit also know that The Lord of the Rings is my favourite book ever Go a little bit deeper, and you also know that Frank Herbert s Dune is high up on my

    Though I am wont to blame the inescapability of genetics for various aspects of an Epicurean reading of Absurdism, I tend to pause, for some reason, in ascribing gender differences as stringently It s difficult to say if this is simply a bias of wishful egalitarian thinking or truly an outgrowth of my understanding, for precisely the reasons that Epicureus is worthy to interrupt my many Suicides So, when I say that women seem than men to be capable of breaking the Tolkien Curse laid so th

    An excellent Arthurian saga.Written from the point of view of Morgaine, Arthur s half sister and the villian of traditional Arthur tales.Unique in perspective with strong female characters It is a story of love and quite different from any Arthur novel you ll ever read.Marion Zimmer Bradley s best work She paints a vivid picture, rich with depth of characters and relationships One of my favorites, I can read this over and over again.
