Secondly, Reeve writes well in several dimensions according to my scale of values. His English is good without being 'boring', the storylines are gripping and entertaining and the values transmitted and challenges to think are an important part of the 'raising' of well balanced children. The 'Arthurian Legend' is a perennial, it comes around at least once in each generation. I remember reading Rosemary Sutcliffe's 'Sword at Sunset'! There is something viceral about this 'matter of Britain' and I for one am pleased that my children have encountered it.
Thirdly, buying this book for your child / children buys many hours of peace multiplied by the number of children you have or lend it out to!
The book is unexpected, covering an old legend from a refreshing angle.
In this book you find issues about self-identity, self confidence, belief systems, gender roles, lies, propaganda, greed and war. Very relevant in these troubling times.
It also exposes sweetly ideas about love, tenderness, yearning, compromise, patience, rites of passage and forgiveness.
A short book which is very enjoyable indeed. To label this as a "young adult" book is pigeonholing it. I'm no young adult and I found it resonated with me well.
