Admittedly, when I read the hardcover years ago, I was extremely disappointed with the fragmented nature of this book. I wanted "Epic" like Mists, and dismissed this book with some sourness. I only chose to get the audiobook because of Rosalyn Landor, and how stunning I thought her reading of "The Forest House" was. This book ("Lady of Avalon") like the previous one, just blossoms under Ms. Landor's efforts. I still don't care for the middle story, but the bookends - the first part taking up the action right after "The Forest House" ends and the third part, learning about Viviane's early years, are just beautifully done now.
I still don't think this is a great standalone book - in fact, I would only recommend it after listening to "The Forest House" and as a bridge to "Mists." But, if like me, you didn't enjoy reading the novel itself, I would suggest you give it another try by listening to it being read by such a wonderful storyteller.

Back in time in Avalon's history, the reader is effortlessly drawn back into the world Zimmer Bradley first created with "The Mists of Avalon." The story moves along magically and if it were in book form, it would be a real page-turner. The characters are human and real as well as fairy and priestess.
