    The Earl par Cecelia Holland (themulhern)
    themulhern: The Earl, a novel for adults, is set in England about 20 years before "The Seeing Stone" but the conflict between inclinations and the expectations of society is just as strong. The eponymous earl holds some lands on the Welsh border and one of his pages is officially a Welsh hostage.… (plus d'informations)

First in a trilogy of kids' books, centering around a 12 year old boy in 1199, who gets given a "seeing stone" of Obsidian by Merlin, and sees a corresponding story of Arthur the once and future king.[return][return]Not too bad for a children's story

[This is a review I wrote in 2007]

Young Arthur, at the age of 13, in the year 1199, is given a beautiful obsidian stone by a man named Merlin. The boy Arthur lives a normal, if priveleged, existence as a page to his father on a wealthy manor in the Marches, just on the "England" side of the border with Wales. He lives together with his parents, his elder brother and younger sister, and he dreams of nothing other than one day becoming a Squire.

The stone seems perfectly normal at first, and then one day Arthur starts to see images in the stone and a story starts to emerge... a story featuring another young boy named Arthur!

The plot is really good, and with the awards that the book received, including winning the "Guardian Children's Fiction" prize, I was expecting it to be that good. However, I was quite disappointed to find that the text of this average-length book had been chopped up into a staggering 100 chapters, some just the length of a short paragraph!! I felt as though I literally "struggled" through to Chapter 33 as the text, for me, was lacking immediacy and flow!

I persevered, and my annoyance at the constant disruptions of thought faded as I was drawn into the lives or Arthur, his family, and their retainers, skilfully woven with the threads of Arthurian Legend. The book is built on solid foundations of well-researched historical evidence regarding the lives and customs of Britons at the turn of the thirteenth century. I now look forward to experiencing the rest of the Arthurian Legend through the eyes of young Arthur, in books two and three ("At the Crossing Places", and "King of the Middle March"). I only hope that the chapters become more substantial and terrible chapter headings such as "Mouthfuls of Air" (Lynne Truss would have a field day with this one!!) are avoided!

A good story - worth reading if you can persevere with the numerous chapters! ( )

A young Arthur living at the end of the twelfth century in England is given an obsidian stone by his father's friend, Merlin. In the stone, he sees the life of another, older Arthur, and their two lives are strangely similar.
Meh. I couldn't get into this one much, although in general it was an okay read. I don't see the point of the link between the two Arthurs and that irritated me and spoiled the book for me a bit. ( )

I got this for a leisure read. Sometimes I just like to fall back into a little fantasy and let my mind explore a world that doesn't exist in the same space as mine. The Seeing Stone is told in very short chapters that were enjoyable. They move the story forward quickly while revealing tidbits about the history of the time and the family involved. It's told from the point of view of a thirteen year old boy. His mild observations about the world around him will draw you in, as you can sense that something much bigger than him is going on. Fun read. ( )
