A new perspective of King Arthur¿
Here Lies Arthur<BR/>Philip Reeve<BR/>Scholastic Press, 2008<BR/>ISBN: 9780545093347<BR/>Reviewed by Debra Gaynor for ReviewYourBook.com, 2008<BR/>4 stars<BR/>Anew perspective of King Arthur¿<BR/>Philip Reeve offers a new perspective on King Arthur. Here Lies Arthur is a book for young adults. The story is told through the eyes of a young girl named Gwyna. Reeve¿s perspective of Arthur is not complimentary. This King is not easy to recognize; he is crude and barbaric. There is no magic in Reeve¿s Merlin. <BR/>Here Lies Arthur is a good read, but I found it hollow after growing up on The Midst of Avalon by Marion Bradley Zimmerman and Mary Stewart¿s, The Crystal Cave, The Hollow Hills, and The Last Enchantment. When I hear of Arthur, I want to think of him as noble and elegant. I want Merlin to be magical.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
