I took a chance on this book, not knowing how serious and researched it would be. But I liked the subject, and thought I'd give it a go. I wasn't disappointed! The book deals a lot with the history behind Merlin and the legends(or history) its based on. For someone not familiar with the british history and local gods, it's a very good introduction to the subject.
I like the amount of research, and the arguments being put forward throughout the book. That makes the book credible. And the author is not afraid to ask "What if...?" Thats what makes the difference between a good scientist and a mediocre one. The mediocre one doesn't want to move forward without there being absolute proof, and therefore never goes anywhere. Thats not the case here.
The only negative thing is that the ending is very sudden and doesn't leave us with any clear results. But perhaps that because there aren't any. Still a good read, and an inspiration.
