    In late 2003, in his column in Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called The Memory of Running "the best novel you won't read this year." This glowing endorsement of the audiobook resulted in Ron McLarty receiving a $2 million two-book deal from Viking Penguin. Also, Warner Brothers has shelled out big bucks for the movie rights to The Memory of Running, for which McLarty will write the script.

    "Disgusting"
    Overall

    I couldn’t even finish this book. It was an insult to my intelligence, crude, base and so boring. I had to “fast forward” many parts because they were so vulgar. I can’t believe it was rated so high! I will NEVER trust those ratings again! I finally just quit listening, I don’t have to subject myself to that. I’m just disgusted I wasted time and money on it. I had to give it one star because it wouldn't let me save it without giving it one.

    King Arthur was a legendary British leader of the late fifth and early sixth century who, according to the medieval histories and romances, led the defense of the Romano-Celtic British against the Saxon invaders in the early sixth century. This book gives an account of the life of this great legend of all times.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I'm sure the knights back in the day, just went around looking for a fight, but they all started sounding the same. Maybe if you have a lot of time on your hands or are way into the whole Knight thing you'd like it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The reader was so slow, it made it drag on as well.

    Michael Havel was flying over Idaho en route to the holiday home of his passengers when the plane's engines inexplicably died, forcing a less than perfect landing in the wilderness. And, as Michael leads his charges to safety, he begins to realize that the engine failure was not an isolated incident.

    David says: "An SCAer's dream"
    "Terrible Language"
    Overall

    Story line had major holes. I guess the author tried to make up for it with foul language. Didn't work - made it worse!
