    It was a time of legend, the last shadows of the mighty Roman conqueror faded from the captured Isle of Britain. While, across a vast sea, bloody war shattered a peace that had flourished for 2,000 years in the doomed kingdom of Atlantis. This is the remarkable adventure of Charis, the courageous princess from Atlantis who escapes the terrible devastation of her land, and of the fabled seer and druid prince Taliesin, singer at the dawn of the age. It is a story of an incomparable love that joins two astonishing worlds....

    John says: "A Classic interpretation of a Classic tale"
    "A Good Introduction"
    Overall

    This is a good book and well read however it does suffer from being slightly slow in places. Those reading wishing to be thrown straight into the world of arthur may be fustrated and the first third of the book does not help, being slow. The middle third is a lot better, however the third part in more like the first. However if the reader/listener keeps at it then they will found a book that provides a good introduction and provides a lot of depth to later books.

    Kate Schechter would like to know why everyone she meets knows her name - and why Thor, the Norse god of thunder, keeps showing up on her doorstep. Dirk Gently, detective and refrigerator wrestler, can uncover the mystery, and only the absurdist wit of Douglas Adams can recount them with such relentless humor.

    Jackson says: "An Amazingly Perfect Story"
    "A Funny Journey"
    Overall

    Out of the two 'Dirk Gently' titles written by Douglas Adams this is probably the weaker. Don't get me wrong, it is incredibly funny in his usual style, the detective logic is spot on and some of his observations are genius. The problem is that Adams sometimes can't find good ways to finish his books and I feel this is especially true with this title (I won't give away the ending). Also a plus is Adam's reading as his dry wit fits perfectly with the tone of the book and he obviously understands how his material should be read. Overall I would say this is definitely worth a look as although the ending is weak, the story is one hell of a funny journey.
