As part of the Read-a-Thon, they asked us to name our favorite female character from a book. Mine would probably be Morgaine from the Mists of Avalon. I read this book ages ago and I am just now reading it again, this time as an audiobook. I think what I loved about Morgaine is how strong she is in the face of everything that happens in the story. Mists of Avalon tells from when Morgaine is a toddler, before Arthur’s birth, until Arthur’s death. She takes on a lot of challenges but manages to remain in control. She also is a character that is not cut and dried, good/bad. She’s compelling.
And talking about this makes me want to rewatch the movie they made of this book, even though it wasn’t very good.
