    I was around fifteen when this movie came out and I remember this one defining moment that sealed my plain hatred for Guinevere and Lancelot it was the look on King Arthur’s face played by Sean Connery upon learning of their betrayalIf anything this novelization has only kindled that abhorrence anewPlus points though for Miss Chadwick’s way with words I am amazed by how she has clearly and thoroughly described Lancelot's gauntlet scene and the oubliette at Malagant’s castle But to be honest she could have truly done better had she not novelized and written her own story on the Arthur Guinevere Lancelot affair instead This derivative work feels somehow lacking of the flair and substance and historical depth that are usually found in her writings

    This is a very well written novelization of the film ''First Knight'' Elizabeth Chadwick proves that she knows how to treat characters how to write in a beautiful poignant way She has managed to create a memorable work breathing life and sympathy into the characters of Guinevere Arthur and Lancelot unlike the film itself which in my humble opinion it is flat out horrible as a narration and with a casting that is almost an abominationToss the film and read the novelization as if it is another version of the Arthurian legend Having done the mistake to watch the film first and read the novel later the only negative thing was that while I was reading I couldn't erase Gere's pestilent expressionless ugly face from my mind

    Really nice fantasy take on the Arthurian Saga Lancelot is portrayed as charming likable and having an interesting background Guinevere is much the same a classical romance saga

    Having sat on my bookshelf for over five years I finally got around to reading Elizabeth Chadwick's novelization of the 1995 film First Knight I've always had a soft spot for the actual movie which is why I picked up the novelization in the first place after all Reading it there's things about the novelization I like It fleshes out the backgrounds of the main characters and at times changes them about a bit such as the event that makes Lancelot the man we meet The novel also fleshes out the time scale over which the events take place which makes the romantic relationships between the character's believable That said I was aware in this novelization then I was with the actual film was the clunky and wooden dialogue Stripped of the film's performances particularly Sean Connery as Arthur some of the dialogue doesn't work as well or at all for that matter In fact Arthur becomes of a supporting character in the novel which is something of a disappointment Overall then this novelization of First Knight is a good novel of a good film but one wonders if it couldn't have been better

    25 STARS This is a uniue account of the fabled love between Lancelot Du Lac and Guinevere Lady of Leonesse replete with all the beloved characters of the Camelot legend The superstar cast in this major motion picture by Columbia Pictures is sure to bring this sweeping tale to vivid life on screen starring Richard Gere Sean Connery and Julia Ormond From A simplistic storytelling of King Arthur and his legend

    The book is well written but much simply written than most of Elizabeth Chadwick's books I had to set it aside for a while as I received two meaty books from the Interlibrary Loan system also Elizabeth Chadwick's books that were each nearly 500 pages that I needed to read first Once I got back to it it was a very uick read Really enjoyed it


  7. Kristen Kristen says:

    If you like the movie you will most likely like the book as well It followed the movie almost dead on There were a few added in scenes that added a lot of perception to the movie I enjoyed itMoral Note Some innuendos some talk of women's figures and clevage Clean language for the most part a few hecks Mild violence

    Just bad The plot seemed lame and the whole passion thing was bad I couldn't feel what the characters were feeling and their emotions were no excuse for what they did They needed to do what was right


  9. Ijorabi Ijorabi says:

    I read this as a child The writing is laughable and the story makes me facepalm now Still I can't bring myself to throw it away


  10. Aimee Aimee says:

    I'm sorryIt might be a good book and it might be a good movie but I just can't respect a book about someone who breaks up a relationship because they're too selfish to just walk away
