I've been meaning to read this for a while. I did start it, and then I stopped, and didn't get back to it until today. But it's a quick read, really: I think it took me less than an hour, altogether. It's a reworking of the story of Percival, in a modern setting, where you're never quite sure whether it's all delusion or reality -- or some weird mix of the two. It poses more questions than it answers, and I'm not entirely sure I liked it. But I definitely found it interesting.

I wouldn't say that you should read it for amazing characters -- I found most of them bland -- or for stunning drama or whatever, but if you're interested in reworkings of Arthurian stories, and especially of grail stories, then this is worth picking up.
