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.
Neville Jason keeps the story entertaining even when the end of the series becomes tedious. I would rate books 1&2 with 5 and 4 stars respectively, but books 3-5 become tedious and even boring. I plan to read book 1 "The Sword in the Stone" to my 6th grade class. Mr.Jason has been an excellent example of how to do it.
Beautifully written, well performed and quite enjoyable. If you have any interest in the King Arthur legend, it is a must read
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.
The narrator made this fantastic, yet sometimes slow novel every bit as wonderful as reading it. His voices were varied and full of character, especially Merlin's. These books made me rethink or reaffirm many of my core beliefs, which I think is a wonderful quality possessed by only the greatest of literary works.
First read The Once and Future King almost 40 years ago. Sometimes I reread a book and wonder why I liked it so much the first time. That didn't happen with The Once and Future King. I enjoyed as much maybe even more.
