    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 betrayal.If anything, this novelization has only kindled that abhorrence anew.Plus 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 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 betrayal.If anything, this novelization has only kindled that abhorrence anew.Plus 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 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

    Elizabeth Chadwick Autora que se caracteriza por su extenso conocimiento en ese periodo hist rico que tanto me fascina y cautiva, LA EDAD MEDIA.Libro ameno y entretenido, quiz s un poco exagerado, pero expresa muy bien como era la vida en esos tiempos, La tabla redonda y sus caballeros de las leyendas del Rey Arturo de Camelot es lo que mas me agrado.Lo recomiendo amplia mente a aquellos lectores que se inicien en la novela hist rica medieval.

    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 o 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 sbelievable That said, I was awarein 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 becomesof 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

    659 2013Kadang, di film aku mendukung salah satu karakter di film simply karena pemerannya Karena aku lebih suka Sean Connery daripada Richard Gere, aku jauh lebih simpati kepada Arthur ketimbang Lancelot Padahal kalau melihat jalan ceritanya, kayaknya di sini Lancelot yang jadi tokoh utama sementara Arthur cuma sampingan saja jangan tertipu cover filmnya Endingnya juga tragis buat Arthur T.T

    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 it.Moral Note Some innuendos, some talk of women s figures, and clevage Clean language for the most part a few hecks Mild violence.

    The book is well written, but muchsimply 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 quick read Really enjoyed it.

    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.
