This is faithful to the original - still selfish, still in an alien time - but fleshed out and educational. Easier to see the classic in a classic.
A couple of things come to mind as I post this review ~ one is that there is a great responsiblity on a review to both express the thoughts of the reviewer and secondly to do justice to the craftsmanship of the author. In plain English~ DO READ THIS BOOK!!! The story of Tristan and Isolde predates the Arthurian legends we all love. Characters are one dimensional letters on a page in a book until a master storyteller like Brittain weaves a living breathing tapestry that draws the characters and the reader together in an epic tale of treachery and intrigue. These are not 'nice' people but rather like Daisy and Tom Buchanan ~they are careless people. Yes,there are plenty of noble knightly deeds done but there is also the blatant disregard for the feelings of others as Tristan and Isolde justify their selfish actions with pretty shoddy reasons. There are also beautiful characters who the reader is rooting for and hoping will receive the desires of their hearts. Plenty of moral and religious issues for the pensive reader to digest as well! Perhaps the best of Brittain's work ~ but then again I still have The Sign of the Rose and Count Scar on my reading list!
I know you will enjoy this tale ~ I lost a lot of sleep because once I started it I just kept reading~well worth it!
Hoping that Brittain will take more pages from medieval history and weave them into tales with her magic!
