Publisher's Summary

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.

Anyone who dismisses this as a children's story, fairy tale, or -worse - only knows the Disney cartoon... should be locked up in Galapas's dungeon & made to listen to this fine audiobook until his brains bubble.
There is a tradition of intelligent, absurdist British comedy, which - if you drew a line from Douglas Adams, back through Monty Python & the Goons, would go slap bang through the middle of T.H. White. Not just witty & erudite but laugh-out-loud funny.
Fantasy, Natural History, Science, Philosophy & observational comedy all wrapped up in a whacking good adventure yarn, stuffed with more mediaeval detail than you'd get after an evening drinking mead with an Oxford history don.
I'm going to listen to the remaining 4 books in what began as a trilogy ... now, where have I heard that before? Come back Douglas, comedy needs you. It's all just rockstar stand-ups, now, filling the O2 arena!
Beautifully read, too. Don't ever download the standard audiobook files. I paid £81 for Lord of the Rings & got something that sounds like it was recorded through Tom Bombadil's old sock! That was before Enhanced (CD) quality was available.
