Maybe I was expecting too much, otherwise I don't really understand what's the matter with Avalon High.
At the beginning it wasn't exactly great, OK, but you could read it and even enjoy it. Then it starts to look just like a typical Disney Channel movie. The main character, Ellie, is really boring and Will isn't much better. I even prefer Jennifer or Lance.
But the worst part is the end. I mean, your brother has a gun and your girlfriend has an old sword. And, someway, you manage to get the sword and win.
I don't wanna say anything about the whole "oh, you aren't the lady of Shalott, you are the Lady of the Lake" thing. Great. I was starting to think that it couldn't be worse.
And why does it deserve TWO stars, and not just one? Because of Annapolis ♥
I don't know much about Arthurian myths except some children's tales about how King Arthur got along with his roundtable knights... so this book doesn't really appeal to me as much as Meg Cabot's other books like the Princess Diaries series.
Nevertheless I rather enjoyed how Elaine, who keeps on insisting that she is the "practical type", narrates the story with really a matter-of-factly practical tone. Her jokes keep me laughing throughout the book, too....Continua
Loved IT! Loved IT! Loved IT! Loved IT! Loved IT! Loved IT! Loved IT! Loved IT! Loved IT! Loved IT!
Mainly because it's theme is about one of my favourite historic eras. Medieval. King Arthur! Yeah!
