God, this is but a long story and very rich in details.
But once you get to know the characters you'll soon get drawn into the book.
There are different views on the story and this is being told from different narrators, which makes it a real experiance. I liked the buttlar best. Anyhow, the finishing to the story is somewhat odd, and ends to sudden, compare to the richiness of the rest.
This was my first audio-book and I was amazed how I got drawn into the story. Reading books at bedtime, I usually fall asleep. So, this would probably be a big mistake if you drive in the car, and since the story is pretty complex it needs much attention.
Anyhow, the books (see also Snow Crash) are in my opinion not so far in the future and when you listen to both of the stories, it makes you think how long it will take to come true.
All in all, both books are just fantastic stories and I would not be surprise if we would see a movie soon.
This is one of the best books I've ever listend to. I just couldnt stop listening and sometimes was even sitting in the car parking to wait for the chapter to end.
If you, as we probably all did have seen the movie, then you have some expectations to the book. To me this was a venture in old times, when I have read the book as a teenager.
So, I dont have to say much of the story. It is well known and a milestone in history of books. The reading is smoothly and doesnt lack of emphatcy. All in all, I enjoyed it much.
This is the 3rd Book of the Pendragon Cycle and probably the best out of the four. Very nice plot.
Even so, there are several movies of this Story and it makes me wonder, how different the relationships of people are described compared to the book, when you have read all four it makes all sense. But just one thing I couldn't figure out is how old people get in these days. But as it is all tale, some people may live for some centuries. Why not? :o)
This is the first book in the Pendragon Cicle. A story which tells you the mystery of britains early days. A bit longwinded and detouched, but all in all a fantastic tale.
