A SAHM who loves books
Yes I think I will again one day
When The Wart was turned into a bird and spent the night with the castles hunting birds.
This is the first time I have listened to this narrator. But I find him excellent he makes the book so easy to listen to. It is nice to hear someone who can use such great intonation.
I have found this a very entertaining book. The characters all are very interesting.
The story of how The Wart meets Merlin is sad yet funny.
I find Merlin to be an extremely likable character, he really lightens the book.
It is interesting to hear the early years of Arthur (known as The Wart) in this book.
Definitely looking forward to the next book.
I don't try write a review as if it were the only review a potential reader will see. I write things that I noticed.
I enjoyed revisiting a book I read in high school with the help of excellent narration.
I like the first section with Arthur as the boy "wart" and especially the point where he first meets Merlin.
Haven't listened to him before.
No, partly because of length and partly because of tough sections, but I did always want to get back to it.
I would. It's a classic, and it uses the classic characters of Arthurian Legend well and effectively.
I have no suggestions. It is a great story. It's just DENSE.
I honestly could not see this being made into a series effectively because I don't think there would be sufficient actors to effectively portray it.
Book I is already an animated movie: The Sword in the Stone.
Yes, because it is a very good story. I also like to compare the first part of the book to the Walt Disney movie "The Sword in the Stone".
Let the Wookiee win.
I enjoyed pretty much all of the books in this set EXCEPT for The Book of Merlin. This final book waffles and wanders as it hammers you with the point the Author was trying to make in his story. A very disappointing end to what was quite an entertaining series.
The first part is ok but as mentioned before, just skip The Book of Merlin.
Mr Jason did a wonderful job animating all of the characters and I'd definitely listen to him again.
I am inspired to read other works regarding Arthur after reading this. It also brought back so many memories of reading Arthurian legends as a child.
The series as a whole is wonderful but, as with Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia series, the final book lets it down and bombards the reader with the Authors theories on life, the universe and everything. Instead of letting the reader come to their own decision he forces this upon you.The above is ONLY true of the final book and all of the other books are marvellous, though it does feel a little more like the legend of Lancelot than Arthur.I would recommend this book to any fan of Arthurian legend, but just skip the last book, it adds very little to the story.
All in all, a great listen, although you often wonder what the point of many of the story's diversions are.
Disciple of the written word and Audible fanatic. I am an Urban and Epic Fantasy Fan. I also enjoy some Paranormal Romance.
Yes the narrator lends a flare that is lacking in print
I didn't really have a favorite. The characters are all dear to any Arthurian fan.
No. This was the first but I look forward to more
The entire book has a certain whimsy, I felt moments that made me laugh but no deeper emotions
This is a necessary book if you love the tales of the round table.
i have already listened to the story more than once
The absolute abandon of the story teller in bringing the characters to life. Got to love Merlin all over again
Neville Jason takes you back in time to a childhood of fantasy
I LOVED it
A grest version of events, an enjoyable listen and a brilliant narrator who never forgot his characters voice.
An excellent comparison between the days of old and today. White also included modern authors into the story.
In my oppinion a good listen, loved it.
Excellent performance by the narrator. A clear predecessor to some of the great modern authors, such as Pratchett and Adams.
Smart, insightful and cutting.
The finale, where Arthur talks to Mallory.
The subject matter may feel dated. The book occasionally veers into silliness that I found unnecessary.
