The Mists of Avalon - Marion Zimmer Bradley - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Mists of Avalon:

The story of King Arthur, as told by the women around him.

My favorite Marion Zimmer Bradley quote from the book:

"Never name the well from which you will not drink."

Questions to ponder while reading The Mists of Avalon:

Do you believe your thoughts create your reality?

Should any diety require so much?

My thoughts about The Mists of Avalon:

Eternally re-readable.

A great view of King Arthur.

Good intentions often go so badly.
