Here Lies Arthur was an unexpected delight - the writing so delicious, I found myself reading and re-reading passages. At its heart is a rich imagining of how legend, myth and story are woven through the ages, told with a plot that raced, and characters that steal your heart. I shed tears for more than one as if I knew them well. Philip Reeve manages to evoke a disarming innocence of a brutal era. If you are looking for the usual Arthurian story, this is not for you. Here Lies Arthur is far more than that. Bravo and thank you, Mr Reeve. It's the best book I've read this year. Soon to be a classic.
