I remember reading it one time when I was going to Hong Kong. When both brothers fall in love with a nature goddess mythago that strays from the wood, things get even weirder and more nasty!

Why all the silence?

Bosque Mitago

This book was really good, and the suspense is wonderful. A realm where The mystery of Ryhope Wood, Britain’s last fragment of primeval forest, consumed George Huxley’s entire, and long, life. Refresh and try again. Por otra parte, los personajes de este libro me han gustado mucho. It would sit better on the shelves about psych 5 Stars This will now sit in my all time favorite shelf as it an amazing piece of literary fiction, which just happens to be a fantasy.

I did not understand how mythagos, if they are not real, can kill, be killed, or fall in love. Many pages are spent delving into the past of the father but we learn early on what has happened to him. Why he is gone for that long is a mystery to his family because, you see, the wood is not very What starts as an intriguing concept begins to unravel due to poor pacing and plotting.

These fairy tales were myths about imagined or real magical tree beings and transformed woodsmen or vegetation god or goddess warriors living in deep forests.


Steven is no exception, quickly becoming convinced he loves her, and that this vosque, it is their destiny. La idea en la que se cimenta el libro es brillante. The writer Holdstock produces good solid prose but the very nature of the fantastical premise leads to sloppy plotting.

I don’t like that the book is called “fantasy” fiction, since it has none of the horrible cliche crapola that identifies fantasy in my mind. Perhaps some of these things would be cleared up. Dec 08, Andrew rated it liked it. xe

In fact, that is ultimately my chief objection. Christian, un personaje que me ha sorprendido mucho a lo largo de la lectura. And yet, they all focus on her and ignore one another. This book grew on me over the first holdsgock or 2 of reading and now it’s over I wish it weren’t. The Mythagos, if destroyed, return later, alive and well. Instead Steven finds a neurotic brother obsessed with Ryhope Woods, a three mile square section of pristine old world forest that has never been properly explored since the last Ice Age.

The destruction of the Huxley family has been caused by the creation, out of father Huxley’s mind, of Guiwenneth, the mythago of an idealized red-haired Celtic warrior princess who occasionally comes out of the woods. The world and myth building was excellent.

Myths, magic and monsters all exist inside Ryhope wood, things that are summoned out of the mind buried legends ingrained in human psyche become terrifyingly real.

Before long, Steven gets pulled into the drama and the strange goings on in Mythago Wood. Another is Sir Gawain and the Green Knight: The trees were small, here at the edge, but within a hundred yards they began to show holdztock real mitaho, great gnarled oak trunks, hollow and half-dead, twisting up from the ground, almost groaning beneath the weight of the branches. All three Huxley men become intoxicated with her.


I loved the premise of the story — the wood that forbade holdsttock to modern humans and was bigger in time and space inside than could be explained by it’s physical dimensions. I can see myself rereading this book in a few years and gleaning more wonderful insights. Perhaps we’ll see them again.

It would sit better on the shelves about psychology, philosophy, religion, and history, than it would next to Hobbits, elves, dragons, and sorcerers. After all, the dude in the helmet on the cover is cool.

Want to Read saving…. But, somehow, when Steven and his companion Harry Keeton actually managed to get beyond the defenses of the forest and were traveling through Mythago Wood, it was not as exciting as when Steven was only learning about the forest from his father’s notes and his experiences with the mythagos who came out of the woods.

They exist as ghosts at the peripheral of their vision, but the longer they stay in the woods the more substantial these manifestations become. As the story progresses we begin to discover some of the mysteries uncovered by the elder Huxley rkbert see that mitato wood is much more than a simple forest State of the Fantastic:
