The Dragon and the George by Gordon R. Dickson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Here's an odd duck for you. Or rather, an odd Dragon. Or rather, an odd Knight.
Yes, it's a DRAGON that happens to be a chivalrous KNIGHT. Or rather, he would be if he wasn't really the mind of a regular English godfearing chap that got slipped into the body of an actual dragon, living in the times of Chivalry, where men were real men and women gave handkerchiefs and needed saving.
I think the idea is splendid. Especially if you WANT this kind of thing. But tales of Chivalry are kinda done these days. That doesn't mean that the book isn't fun. In this specific way, it is very well done and if you manage your expectations, it's pretty much perfect.
Me, I think it's fine. Nothing too special but it IS a bit quirky and cute.
