    The complete "box set" of T. H. White's epic fantasy novel of the Arthurian legend. The novel is made up of five parts: "The Sword in the Stone", "The Witch in the Wood", "The Ill-Made Knight", "The Candle in the Wind", and "The Book of Merlyn".

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Once and Future King the most enjoyable?

    I commute 1.5 hours one-way three days a week with my toddler and we listened to this book together. I doubt very much that he got a lot of it, but when it came time to buy a Halloween costume he said he wanted to be a knight, so it must have rubbed off! The book made my drive so enjoyable that I actually looked forward to my commute!


    What does Neville Jason bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Neville Jason is excellent! The voices for the various characters are well-done and the pace of the read is perfect. It was much more entertaining than what I might have heard in my head had I read it alone.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I forgot how witty this book is! Old King Pelennor always gives me a laugh.


    Any additional comments?

    You'll have to excuse the patriarchal slant of the book given the time it was written and the time in which it is set. Women were certainly not given equal consideration in either. However, the story does transport you to the medieval times and gives a good sense of life in that time and place. I loved it!
