Enchanted By The Mists Of Avalon

Updated on August 1, 2016

I have always been fascinated by the story of Camelot and when a friend gave me The Mists Of Avalon, I was again enchanted by the characters related to this saga.

The book is written from the perspective of the women in King Arthur's court. The story is primarily about Arthur's half-sister, Morgaine and her journey through life. It is a breathtaking look into what life might have been like for these fictional characters. It talks about their religion both Pagan and Christian and this is one of the aspects that endeared me to the story. I love the details surrounding the traditions of the court in this era. The knights and the ladies all have their roles to play.

The story is highlighted with magic and mystery.

The Perfect Book for Avid Readers

I am an avid reader and when I faced a medical procedure that would keep me bedridden I used this book to bring myself out of my surgery and into recovery. When I could not hold myself up to sit in a chair, I propped myself up on pillows and lost myself in the realm of the Faery folk and honorable knight found within the covers of The Mists Of Avalon. The book is one that I will read again throughout my life.

It is quite entertaining. You may find yourself laughing out loud or shedding sentimental tears as the tales of this kingdom unfold. You will cheer their triumphs and be angry of their circumstances. The book was a very emotional reading for me.

This fantasy by author Marion Zimmer Bradley is part of a series of books and one that I treasure for a lifetime in my personal library.

      @sousababy: It is engrossing! I should add that word to my text. The way the author describes the culture is amazing. I know you would enjoy them.

      I was coming up out of a hysterectomy when I received this book and it was a painful first two weeks. Thankfully, I understood what I needed to keep close to me so I didn't have to leave that bed for a few days. This was the best thing I could have done for my recovery. There is nothing more healing than a great book. Thanks for your visit, Rose!

      I've never read this series - but if these helped you recover from surgery (which I trust went fine) then they must be completely absorbing. I love that kind of escape.
