livre d'or

Book: The Broken Sword

Author: Poul Anderson

Details: Originally published 1954; (c) 1971 Poul Anderson; Pub 1981 Del Rey; ISBN 0-345-29860-8

Verdict: The broken sword is pacy and the setting is cool, but it doesn't quite reach the mythic tone it seems to be aiming for.

Reasons for reading it: rysmiel enthused about it as being a progenitor to Gaiman, plus I needed something readable for the long train journey to Dundee.

How it came into my hands: Present from the ever-wonderful rysmiel
