Val Happy New Year everyone.

Our first book of the year is The Table of Less Valued Knights by Marie Phillips

It is a humorous take on Arthurian legend, so not too taxing for anyone still recovering from Christmas and New Year indulgence.

Happy New Year Val!! and to all of our group!

Lisa (lisadannatt) | 13 comments Just started this. It's a lot of fun so far. Particularly enjoying Conrad and Jemima's part of the tale.

Lisa (lisadannatt) | 13 comments Finished this yesterday. A quick, fun read.

I particularly enjoyed the satire of Arthurian legend and how unpredictable events were.

just about to start - am looking forward to something 'fun' as so many of these books are very serious!

Val It is fun, although I did find the humour a bit heavy handed (and not a patch on either 'Monty Python' or Mark Twain).

I am enjoying this - its totally crazy but that's what I need right now!

Nearly done with this - I found it dwindled a little in the middle and is really comic whilst being endearingly silly in parts! I 'm just wondering how it will end

finished this - was a happy romp that became a bit too silly towards the end but still a pleasant read. I think the originality that attracted me to the first part of the book didn't carry through on the story as it progressed. In the beginning it was interesting and funny and I wanted to read it but later when I'd 'got' that bit the actual plot wore a bit thin for me.
