3.0 out of 5 stars 'different' but not my bag!, 14 July 2011
This review is from: The Bones of Avalon (Dr. Dee) (Paperback)
I was very much looking forward to this book yet found that I had the opposite problem to usual, i.e. this time I couldn't pick it up. I have been an avid fan of Mr Rickman's works since the beginning and have to admit that I was not enthalled. The story was slow, a tad predictable and revealed no revelations.Dee is often misconstrued as this mystical magician with powers, yet the truth from evidence suggests a friend, advisor and astrologer to the Queen. It was brave to write this and I am sure that he needed to, but I felt that the Glastonbury angle had been dealt with in books such as 'The Chalice'- it added nothing. Perhaps if you am not familar with his other works(including those under under Pseudomyn's), you may find this great, but I thought that it was his weakest offering yet. His new Merrily Watkin's book is out in the Autumn and so I wait with baited breath.I am sorry to have to write this but honesty is the best policy - just because it's Phil, dosdn't mean that I will gush over everything he does. He can't please everyone all the time. An average read unless you know nothing re: Phil, Glastonbury,magic etc.
