What caused you to read the novel? What did you like about it?

I found about this book in a one-minute-book-report by my teacher. I was drawn to this book after I heard a short blurb. An Arthurian adventure story seemed very interesting.

Describe the novel in a tweet


An elderly Briton couple travels to their son’s village, while they’re trying to figure out what makes everyone forget parts of their lives.

What makes this novel interesting?

The writer gives the reader information about what happened to characters in the novel, before describing the exact event, so the reader can guess what happened. It also gives a different view of King Arthur than the regular hero stories.

In what categories would you place this novel?

King Arthur, adventure, dragon
