This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I was kind of worried livroo I picked this book up I wouldn’t remember what happened in the first one of the series. I think I read that one about five years ago. However, as soon as I actually started reading it and I have to say that the wonderful writing style of Ms.
Zimmer Bradley, was a huge help everything came I was kind of worried when I picked this book up I wouldn’t remember what happened in the first one of the series. Zimmer Bradley, was a huge help everything came flooding back. This book was at the same time glorious and annoying as hell.
I don’t think I’ve ever wished for a character to get punched in the face – repeatedly Gwen is the most hypocritical character I’ve ever had the misfortune of reading about.
Being stuck inside her head was torture at the very least. She is supposed to represent the biggest Catholic supporters, and she condemns everyone that doesn’t believe the same things she does.
However, and this is the ridiculously funny part, view spoiler [ she ends up asking Morgaine to use her magic and make her get pregnant. AND she then has a threesome with the king her husbandand the guy she’s been panting after since she got married.
It was a great sequel, but I honestly can only hope that this was the end of Gwen’s narrating, because I’m not sure my nervous system can handle another book narrated by her. If it wasn’t for Gwenhwyfar, I would have loved this book. We follow the story of Morgaine, Arthur, Gwenhwyfar and Lancelet, the tensions between the ancient religion connected to the powers of the Goddess of the Land, and Christianity, the building up of the kingdom of Camelot and the struggles against the saxons.
Once more what appealed to me in this book was the whole paganism versus Catholicism thing. Through the discussions that the characters have concerning this theme, we get a gl I swear: Through the discussions that the characters have concerning this theme, we get a glimpse of what people thought at the time, what were the main issues debated then.
I loved the wise sayings of Merlin and of Morgaine, of course. I understand and I know that there were people like her at the time, and the character is completely plausible, but geeez She’s always so scared of everything, so insecure, always holding on to religion as her comfort, her saviour, her everything, and she’s always thinking of herself as a sinner and asking for forgiveness, and crying and bla bla bla.
She’s annoying and tiresome. I seriously thought “I hope Marion Zimmer Bradley changes the story and makes her jump off of a bridge and die or something”. But Gwenhwyfar aside, I loved the whole story and Morgaine is still my favourite character. Avalon and the Goddess for the win! View all 3 comments. Morgaine is gone for much of this book and what we get is the whiny selfish bratty Gwen.
Not my favorite of the 4 books. Mar 29, Lucia rated it really liked it Shelves: I didn’t see it coming xD I’m glad I have the next part se hand!
This second part of The Mists of Avalon continues Morgaine’s story, and now Gwenhwyfar’s voice narrates her own story too. I love how the author manages to give each character their own distinct personality and voice, and their own personal worries and concerns.
Each of these women might be connected to Arthur but their world doesn’t revolve around him, and it’s really their tale we read here, and not Arthur’s. I es Wow, that ending! Her self hatred breaks my heart every time, and I keep hoping there’s something good stored for her later xD Feb 04, Susie rated it liked it Shelves: Oh Gwenhwyfar, I am so tired of your complaining that you haven’t slept with Lancelet, you have to be married to Arthur and he isn’t a Christian, that he believes in keeping his word as he promised the Lady of Avalon and fly the banner of the dragon.
The most positive thing I can say about this book on CD is that the reader, Davina Porter, is most excellent. Otherwise, I’m not sure I want to continue. Mas compreendo o facto dm termos tido de passar por outros narradores: Fiquei ansiosa por ler os restantes! A autora tem o poder de nos agarrar e de nos levar a deambular pela lenda arturiana.
Mais bfumas vez pegar n’A Rainha Suprema foi um regresso a casa. Mais um bocado de Avalon a que regresso de quando em vez. Depressa e bem, bgumas vou a caminho da leitura ou, mais exactamente, da releitura do Rei Veado. Porque Avalon ainda espera por mim. Oct 31, Emily rated it liked it.
Continuing the Mists of Avalon series retelling the legends of King Arthur from the point of view of the women in the stories. Book 2 focuses more on the marriage of Arthur to Gwenhwyfar the welsh spelling and the influence that Gwenhwyfar has upon Arthur as she tries to convince him to break his vow to Avalon and declare his kingdom to be Ae.
This book, like the previous, also examines the Christian vs the druid religions and generally comes down in favour of the latter. Unfortunately Continuing the Mists of Avalon series retelling the legends of King Arthur from the point of view of the women in the stories.
The High Queen (The Mists of Avalon, #2) by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Unfortunately Gwenhwyfar is a very un-likeable character in pretty much every way, which took a star off this book for me since it’s irritating just to read her parts. Gwenhyfar tem um poder oculto: I’m loving all the books!!
Avqlon 06, Suellen rated it it was amazing. Truth said, I’ve read the four books one after another, nonstopping to swallow. I have no opinion of each in particular. May 10, T. Jackson rated it it was amazing Shelves: One of my all time favorites. Read it about a dozen or more times. Somos influenciados a pensar que, de alguma forma, ela teria um papel mais central no decorrer da narrativa.
Jul 02, Hannah rated it it was ok. The high queen is the sequel on The Mists of Avalon.
In this book, Marion keeps telling the story of the King Arthur from the perspective of the women. We know that some things occurred in the story but we do not have a proper reason in this story, she ae everything you need to know and you find out that it was always the women.
They are responsible for most qvalon the happenings in the Arthur story. This book is probably one of the best of the series. You will read this book and realize that you do not know anything about the story.
