( hide spoiler) ] However, I remember liking Here Lies Arthur enough, and actually finding it rather interesting and likable, which brings me to my next confession: I have a deep loathing of King Arthur stories.
But like most people in the US, I 'd reckon, I had to read the King Arthur legends in high chool.
Like I 'm waiting for omeone to come up and pull the wool over my yes, too, so I 'll see what everybody else sees.So what do I do with a book that imagines legendary, " heroic " King Arthur as a brute and a bully?
In my opinion, " huzzah " to Reeve for showing Arthur as I 've always seen him: a brutish brigand who manages to achieve renown not by his own endeavour, but by the ensemble cast working around him.You can read other reviews to get the 411 on the general remise of this books.
I do remember thinking that most of the characters fell a bit flat- but then again, one does not read Here Lies Arthur for the character exposition.
The best part of the storie, for me, was in reading the characte of the Mordred character ( he goes by a different, more Welsh-sounding name in this trilog).
The weirdest thing about the stories, though, was the boy-who-dresses-like-a-girl character.
