  • The Sword in the Stone

  • By: T. H. White
  • Narrated by: Neville Jason
  • Length: 9 hrs and 40 mins
  • Unabridged
  • Overall
    4 out of 5 stars 444
  • Performance
    4.5 out of 5 stars 260
  • Story
    4 out of 5 stars 268

This is one of the most popular re-tellings of the story of King Arthur. Like The Lord of the Rings, this fantasy novel has been equally popular among younger readers and adults. White takes an inventive approach that involves animals who speak and Robin Hood! A true Arthurian classic.

good but not The Once and Future King

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 03-07-08

It's a well done audiobook, but unfortunate it's only part of the usual bundling of "The Sword in the Stone", "The Queen of Air and Darkness/The Witch in the Wood", "The Ill-Made Knight", and "The Candle in the Wind" (and sometimes "The Book of Merlyn") as "The Once and Future King".

Like I said, it's good, but if you're expecting the bigger bundle you might be disappointed.
