1.0 out of 5 stars Biased, shoddy writing, August 8, 2007
The author uses biased sources and anectdotes to push her anti-adoption agenda, resulting in an unbalanced work that verges on propaganda for her cause. Conflicting evidence is either imperfectly dismissed or, more commonly, ignored altogether. She is dismissive of all adoptees with positive experiences, referring to them instead as brainwashed abuse victims. A shallow, sensationalist piece of trash.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great starting book, May 16, 2000
I originally got this book for a course, and it was my first taste of medeival lit. (beyond Beowulf and Canterbury tales, at least - but who didn't read those in twelth grade?). I found it an intriguing, well chosen compilation which showed the major evolutions of the Arthurian saga from the blood-thirsty early chronicals to the flowery romances and chivalry more commonly associated with the legend. The selected excerpts were of just the right length for reading in one sitting, and the introductions helped greatly in understanding them. Despite the fate of most books assigned for a class - I truly enjoyed this one.
