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.
took too many turns - was expecting something a little less fanciful. Off shoots of absurd tales. Not so much 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.
