I enjoyed this retelling of the story - especially as Sutcliff decided not to include the love potion that Tristan and Iseult drink. I've never really liked that part of the story and feel that it takes away from the love they have for each other, so it was great to see the story work without it. The style of the writing felt very much as if I were reading a medieval epic at some points, which was nice at times but also a bit annoying at times since I was reading a modern book and not a medieval text.
