This is going to be a super quick post. I have completed my Arthurian Lit Reading Challenge via Howling Frog Books. This title was the last of four books on my list. It was your typical Howard Pyle style, which I do find entertaining, but I think two Pyles in one year may be a little much for me. There were some stories of Pyle's that were in The Four Arthurian Romances by Chretien de Troyes, such as the story of Geraint and Enid. I actually enjoyed Chretien's interpretation even more.
For most of the book, I was reading along and just enduring it, until the very end. The story of Sir Launcelot and Queen Guinevere grabbed my attention, and I really relished it. I mean, the termination of the Knights of the Round Table due to the battles between King Arthur's knights and Sir Launcelot's knights was horrible. But later I felt badly for Launcelot, especially because of the Queen's rejection of him after King Arthur had died. He truly loved her, I think.
So, yay! I have completed another reading challenge, having read a couple of titles that I would have never read had I not joined, and I am really grateful that I was exposed to them. Thanks, Jean @ Howling Frog Books.
