    A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court is both a whimsical fantasy and a social satire chock-full of brilliant Twainisms. Hank Morgan, a nineteenth-century American---a Connecticut Yankee---by a stroke of fate is sent back into time to sixth-century England and ends up in Camelot and King Arthur's Court.

    Ian C Robertson says: "A Classic Yarn"
    "Entertaining, but a bit slow in places"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If they liked Sci Fi, this is the earliest example of popular alternate history work that I am aware of and its fairly good writing.


    What other book might you compare A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court to and why?

    Parts of the book are very 'Mark Twain' kind of amusing yarn spinning, and other parts read more like modern sci-fi.


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

    Excellent reader. I'll probably look for other books he's read and consider buying them no matter what they are.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not particularly.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm sure I'll keep this is my rotation of books and read it at least a few more times. There were a few slow parts, and some parts that were just too rooted in the time it was written for me to really follow completely, but overall I liked it.
