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 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.
I've only listened to the first 2 parts which is titled "The Sword in the Stone."
His ability to give everyone in the story a recognizable voice that seemed to fit the character in the book
I've never read this book before and have nearly always wanted to know more about the legend of King Arthur.
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".
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.
I was looking for a gritty, epic telling of the King Arthur legend. This book - despite being considered a great work and having many stellar reviews - was not what I was looking for.
Probably not. If he wrote other books in the style he wrote this one, then they are far too targeted-at-all-ages for my liking.
Disappointment and annoyance. The entire first book consists of Arthur being turned into small animals in order to curb his sense of adventure and to teach him. After the fourth time, I was getting aggravated.
Those readers looking for a gritty, epic retelling of the Arthur legend should look elsewhere. The thing that most annoyed me about this book was how Arthur's sense of boyish wonder about everything not only made him appear like a complete dunce, but left me wanting him dead. He was a truly annoying character. This was made worse by the narrator, who still used the same childish voice for Arthur halfway through Book 3. That's as far as I got before realising the story wasn't going to get any better.
