Tried three times to listen to this story but could never stay focused on the story. Did not enjoy this one at all. Too back because I usually love this type of book. Could not get into story.
For those of you who are after an historically accurate representations of the Arthurian legends stay away from this book. Pretty sure that people in this era did not have spectacles, drink port, or complain about the lack of electrical motors.
Narrators voice is nice clear and easy to listen too but by his lighthearted rendition makes it sound more like a spoof than every.
I'm not sure what I was expecting from this. But this is more of a Alice in Wonderland / Wizard of Oz type story. As I don't like those out there "trippy" type stories this wasn't for me.
Far more than I ever expected from a book about King Arthur. The book started as many "fairy tales" might but turned into a study of human behavior and an introspective look into the human condition.
as a deep thought and and story lover, this book does both with brilliant and beautiful stories. you will laugh with humor, wallow in sorrow because of the sad truth, but you will never loose hope, and you will find yourself seeking to do better, fit both you, and the world
When I purchased this, the first thing I did was bookmark the start of each book.
Chapter 1 The Sword in the Stone
Chapter 25 The Witch in the Wood
Chapter 39 The Ill-Made Knight
Chapter 84 The Candle in the Wind
Chapter 98 The Book of Merlin
I have a paperback copy of this, that does not include The Book of Merlin. It is my favorite story, and the paperback is missing pages, from being frequently read (and also from being thrown into my backpack or purse).
I've really enjoyed the audiobook.
