    This book is absolutely HILARIOUSI was first introduced to this book through my brother who was reading aloud to my mother I stopped when I heard something about 'Sir Hatubris' I don't think I spelled that right and was laughing after only a few sentencesBasically this boy named Terence who has lived with a hermit his whole life meets Gawain who is on his way to King Arthur's court to try and become a knight Terence ends up becoming his suire through an odd little twist and off they go Of course since Terence has been raised in the middle of the woods by a hermit he needs some training and things just get funnier and funnier until something serious is thrown in The very end is much serious than the beginning but it makes the transition well and keeps the humor through until the very endIt's absolutely excellent Many of the Seuels are as well I would especially recommend THE LIONESS AND HER KNIGHT though you would probably need to read THE SAVAGE DAMSEL AND THE DWARF first

    bratfarrar says whimsy and maturity and general decency are why I really like Diana Wynne Jones and Garth Nix and Gerald Morris That is each writes characters that I care about and worlds that I want to explore and tells stories that make me want to be a better person

    The Suire's Tale is uite a light treatment of the Arthurian legend suitable for young readers and an enjoyable but very uick read for adults too I've had it on my list for a long time but I only actually eventually bought it because supposedly the series has a sympathetic Kai and my dissertation is on the various permutations of Sir KayThis one however would've been useful for my Gawain essay It turns a lot of the stories even Malory's to Gawain's advantage and plays up the idea of him being the Maidens' Knight and so on Terence is as far as I know a completely invented character but he's likeable enough for me particularly because of his devotion to Gawain which I entirely approve of I wish there'd been a longer treatment of the story of Ragnelle though here she is conflated with Lady Florie and called Lady Lorie but I appreciate Morris' feeling that Malory was rather too hard on Gawain and his comments on Gawain's earlier characterThere's very little about Kai but he is at least a character you can sympathise with in his concern for Arthur with nods back to his literary ancestry in the way he clings to traditions like suires not sitting in their knights' presenceOverall it's a very simple story but that didn't make it unenjoyable

    I love this book I don't know much about what is true and what isn't as far as Arthurian legends go honestly who does? but I really love this story It is based in medieval times when King Arthur ruled England It follows a boy named Terence from humble circumstances who becomes a suire to a Gawain who is off to become a knight Throughout the book they face many adventures together with uests and learning about themselves and others The main uest they encounter together is one uest with different endings Terence learns his heritage Gawain helps save King Arthur's life with the help of Terence It is one of my favorite books and this is just the beginning of the series

    This was fun uick book but I think I had too high of expectations before going into it I did like the direction of the story and I think it sets up some interesting things that could happen But I didn't really get into the story for half the book and I thought it was going to be humorous than it was Don't get me wrong there are some funny bits but I was wanting It's a very tell and not show kind of book so if you can't appreciate that style I'd suggest staying clear of this one That being said I'm now invested than I thought I would be so I want to continue with the series and see what happens next

    Clever light hearted and some times down right hilarious The Suire's Tale is an excellent story of the days of King Arthur Whatever your age you should read this

    Despite the fact that my library has had this book since as long as I can remember and doubly despite the fact that you'd think in at least one of my rambles through the teen section I'd have picked it up I just never have In fact it was Anna who got it from the library I think I might have read a different book in the series once but that was a very long time ago and out of order to boot I might have avoided it because the story is an Arthurian legend and I've had some bad experiences with those but I don't think soI just never got around to reading it It was a delightful surprise The Suire's Tale is both charming and funny with some good plot elements and likeable characters Terence the Suire has grown up living with a hermit who sees time backwards That is he sees the future like it was the past and the past like it was the future When a young knight shows up at the hermit's hut the Hermit informs Terence that he is to go with Gawain and become his suire I don't recall if that is before or after Gawain manages to defeat an evil knight with a stew pot Anyway Gawain and Terence ride off to Camelot where Gawain is made one of the Knights of the Round Table anyone else want to start changing Monty Python? and sent off on a variety of uests Wonderful book If it weren't for a few things I'd probably give it five stars One hilarious adventure after the other The Suire's Tale is a buddy story similar to The Last Knight one of my favorite books but with less swearing Terence is a fun character who clearly grows through character growth yet never gets annoying and Gawain once I dis associated him with Lancelot who is great idiot was a perfectly good character I've never been particularly fond of Arthurian legend which is odd considering how much I love most other myths I won't waste any time musing about it though I suspect I could come up with a great childhood back story given the opportunity but this is easily some of the best stuff I've read Knights and the Round Table and such heroics and bravery and even a few plot twists While it is mostly a fluffy kind of brain candy if you prefer the classics or non fiction there are even some deeper elements that are touched on I would hardly call them explored in any sense of depth but certainly touched on in an uniue and interesting way Like women whether they are silly and what counts as lady likeThe plot elements flow really well together guided by a thread if you will instead of a road The adventures lead to their end and while some things were predictable like who Terence's Father was others are slightly supring like who the Enchantress isI had one or two criticisms with the book which brought it to four stars but they mostly involve spoilers view spoiler for example Lorie I mean that was awkward She's all like 'hey I'm looking haawwt now and thought I'd waltz into your bedroom and inform you that I'm giving you my luuuvvv' and Gawain is like 'And I give you my love' even though they barely know each other So I thought 'perhaps it is part of the test?' but no he goes and cries and seems to have genuinely fallen in loveWhich is just kind of weird if you think about it because he is such a lady's man Anyway then they're kissing and she and her Dad and all of the fairy land fade away and it was kind ofdisturbingweird Perhaps it will make sense later in the series hide spoiler

    This book was alright? I think I would have loved it had I read it when it first came out which I was convinced I HAD done turns out there's than one book with this title but as an adult the humour fell a bit flat There's also a weird thing where like the moral lessons the characters learn are important things about How To Treat Women but the book itself doesn't seem to particularly LIKE any of its female characters? So you end up with Gawain learns he should let women make their own choices even though their choices are usually pretty stupid which I'm not sure I'm comfortable withThe author's note talks about wanting to redeem Gawain who has since Lancelot was introduced to the story cycle been demoted from Arthur's Greatest Knight Gawain is probably my second favourite Table Knight so I understand the sentiment behind the series and probably will read despite being ambivalent about this one


  9. Richard Richard says:

    This was fast paced humorous and enjoyable In an attempt to rehabilitate Sir Gawain it retells some of the stories about him from the point of view of a minor character his suire Terence a character invented by the author Like Arthur himself Terence was given to foster care from an early age and his parentage is a mystery He is presented at first as likeable and docile but not all that uick on the uptake However he does have special aptitudes and abilities which appear from the opening chapter and which are used in the service of others Gradually he grows into a person of importance and provides an example of how even the little people who are ignored or overlooked by many can play a crucial role in the lives of those around them


  10. Ariana Ariana says:

    I have a special place in my heart for books in which the protagonist has a strong good character Despite the choice of being mildly selfish or denying one's own wishes these characters choose to act in moral ways that strongly benefit those around them Terence is such a character He learns to be a suire and serves his master and any that have need of his help to the best that he capable I really loved this book I don't five star lightly
