    About “Felicity Pulman

    1. Felicity Pulman says:

      I grew up a long time ago in a small bush town in Africa No TV, iPods, computer games and surfing the internet you could say I had a very deprived childhood Not so Instead, for entertainment I learned to read Books became my windows to the world they told me about dragons and fairies and magic They told me about other countries and other cultures They told me about myself And I have never stopped reading, because I love stories.I guess I always did things back to front the hard way In Africa, when I ran out of books to read, I wrote my own I love writing stories, but I never thought about it as a grownup occupation As a grownup, I had to go back to school to find out that I really was a writer After doing the HSC at the age of 40, I went on to do a BA Communications degree at UTS My major was creative writing, and suddenly I found myself experimenting with all sorts of genres and, in particular, writing the sorts of stories that I love to read crime and timeslip fantasy back into the past.

    1. So I got this book from a friend when she was getting rid of books and it has taken me this long to read it. I am so glad I finally got around to reading this book. Granted it took me a little while to get into it but once things got moving I was hooked. It helped I had been watching the TV show Merlin so I was very much in mind set to be reading about King Arthur and Medieval England. I honestly loved this book, I loved how Modern day and Myth were weaved together to create this story. Each cha [...]

    2. Shalott tells the story of Callie, her twin sister El, their friend Meg, and two boys from their school – Stephen and Lev – who accidentally go back in time to Camelot, through Callie and El’s father’s virtual reality program. Callie – an artistic girl who seeks her father’s recognition for her abilities – wants to save Camelot by making Lancelot fall in love with the Lady of Shalott instead of Queen Guinevere, preventing a chain of events which would lead to the destruction of Cam [...]

    3. This is the story of twin sisters El and Callie who end up dragging their friends (sort of) Meg, Stephan and Lev back in arthurian time, using a virtual reality simulator.Callie wants to make Lancelot fall in love with her, to save Camelot, and so she depicts herself as the Lady of Shalott.This is an 'on hold' review. I finished the novel but even if it seems and looks complete, it /felt/ incomplete and I hope in the next novels of the trilogy many things will be picked up.I loved how the pieces [...]

    4. I read this in 2001 when it first came out (and when I was much closer to its target demographic). Sadly, it's reread value isn't high. The characters are all fairly unlikeable. Their dialogue and actions don't ring true for teenagers at all, the plot development is often clumsy, and the writing itself is painfully Australian but with slang that shows how dated this book is now. (Before anyone asks, yes, I am Australian and no, I've never once heard people speak the way the characters in this bo [...]

    5. My Arthurian nerdiness mixed with a friend's boasting about this wonderful series she read as a kid practically made me read this. While early on I was a bit confused about the computer program Callie was using once we got to the part where we're sucked back into Camelot I really started to enjoy myself. It was all a bit fun and over too quickly (luckily there's two more then hey). The last third where it all really starts coming together was just a little bit brilliant however sometimes the mod [...]

    6. Read this novel when I had just started high school - it was completely consuming. It caught my eye because it's based on that wonderful poem by Lord Tennyson - I know a lot of people consider it overrated, but it's gorgeous and will always be one of my favourites. I think this and Marianne Curley's work evoke a similar sort of feeling, so it's a lovely read for those who've finished one or the other and need a new read.

    7. This was probably the first fiction book on Arthurian legend I ever read and it was my gateway drug to the full range of the Arthurian stories. Seriously you guys, Arthurian legend, love it.
