My favorite book of all time! Even if you've never been one for King Arthur legends, you'd love this book!

One of the most unforgettable novels I have ever read ... I found myself lugging the large volume around the house, reading in between cooking, while washing dishes, bathroom breaks

This story was so well-written that it is timeless. At no time when I was reading it did I feel like I was reading a book that was written 30-years ago. I was completely enthralled with the well-developed characters and storyline. It was one of those books, that when I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about events that had happened up to the point I had read and when a book does that, I know it's good.

Very well written feminine slant on the King Arthur story. Very discussable for a book club.

The Mists of Avalon is a fantastic book that makes you think. In most books on the legends of King Arthur, only the men get credit for anything. The women are only background, and they never seem to do anything worthy. Guinevere is portrayed in most books as being the cause of the downfall of Camelot. Morgan le Fay, is shown as an evil sorceress. It was nice to read a book on Camelot with the women playing important, good roles

I have had a hard time finding a "favorite" book out there with so many to choose from but once I read this I knew it was it. Take the time to read this book, it is long but it is so worth it and when your done you going to wish it was longer.
