Welcome to Tursan Tuesdays, where I take you on a journey through the Celtic world.
The Mists of Avalon tells the story of King Arthur through the eyes of the women in his life ~ His mother Igraine, his half-sister Morgaine, his aunt Viviane, the Lady of the Lake, and his wife Gwenwyfar.
It is a beautifully told Celtic tale of love and loss, life and death, faith and religion. I thought some of the acting a bit contrived, but on the whole, I really enjoyed the mini-series. I definitely recommend you check it out if you haven’t seen it already.
I’ve done something I would normally consider a sin…I watched the TV version before reading the book. This is a fairly large book, and rather intimidating for even a voracious reader such as myself 🙂
It has received many, many great reviews, and was recommended to me by a friend, so while I have not read it yet myself, I would still suggest you give it a go.
So talk to me. Have you read The Mists of Avalon? Did you see the mini-series? What did you think?
