    1. Well the book is good. Subject of Merlin is pretty steep and hard to be very specific, due to the fact that there are many mythological and literature accounts of him, which rarely lead to a real specific person.

    2. Interesting concept and nicely written. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting and was a little light on history and facts (as much as they can be known), but some really intriguing mystical discussions. Definitely something to pick up if you want a different angle on Merlin.
