Audible Editor Reviews

Wizards, boys, quests, and mixed-up magic. Sound familiar? Listeners can immerse themselves in the early years of King Arthur, known as a boy as the "Wart." Neville Jason easily takes the challenge of White's 1930s' language combined with myriad archaic terms of heraldry and chivalry. He delivers with fluidity and enthusiasm, rarely letting the listener wander off like King Pellinore, before another joust commences. The characters - blustery knights, compassionate mentors, or the sleepy hedgehog - are each imaginatively portrayed. The sly, merry humor is fully intact. Naxos's signature music heralds breaks between stories in this abridged Junior Classics edition. Hark! Well done.

Publisher's Summary

The Sword in the Stone is the first novel in The Once and Future King, T. H. White's epic fantasy re-telling of the Arthurian legend. A cartoon adaptation by Walt Disney made it into an enduring favourite for the young.

What the Critics Say

"[A] lively retelling." (The Guardian)
"Jason's narration reveals that he understands White's sense of humor. He plays up the comedy particularly well in the dialogue: he is remarkably adept at giving individual voices to each character." (AudioFile)
