I think he makes fairly good arguments Despite what some critics have said he does not present this a absolutely definitely true He is careful to use words like I think its probable etc I think the real problem people had with this work is that he presented Merlin as anti Christian The response this book has gotten in the modern era does give validity to his argument that writers in the early middle ages had to code their works to present Christianity in a favorable light thus obscuring the true account of Merlin

For starters this book is in terrible need of an editor I'm looking at you Overlook I will think thrice about ever reading another one of your publications I should have known that a book whose spine is misspelled on the dust jacket Finding Merln is a sign of the lack of attention to detail inside The book read as an in class essay exam where the student is word vomiting everything they can possibly remember about a subject with no chance of organizing said material The chapters were all over the map and the content of the chapters was just as scattered Again the fault of the editor and not the authorIt should have been called Finding Mungo and Other Key Players in Sixth Century Legend Merlin was only directly discussed for about 50 60 pages Mungo for about 150 and Kings and other key players for the other 100 Ardrey's premise behind the book of peeling back layers of history and legend to find the Druid Merlin was and is still promising When Ardrey did discuss the practice of the old Celtic religion and how Merlin may have fit in the material was uite good The lack of training however is evident in the material he presents Ardrey lacks a firm understanding of the medieval church but to be fair so do a lot of people and so much of his material on this subject is skewed The pedantic air in Ardrey's vocabulary was frustrating The use of obvious preposterous and ridiculous lost him a lot of credibility To be fair his use of linguistics was uite interesting for names Scholars have been researching the legend of Merlin for some time and I can't imagine that certain discoveries of his were so obvious He may truly be uite brilliant to discover certain connections but using the word obvious causes me to uestion them And using the words preposterous and ridiculous only highlight the author's strong bias and not the intelligence of his sources It seems unwise to call your sources morons Using the word unlikely would have been less polarizing Again had an editor seriously combed through Ardrey's work it could have been rather enjoyable and interesting Alas it was not
