Summary

Alfred Kropp was just trying to survive high school when his guardian uncle gets him roped into a suspicious get-rich-quick scheme that changes his life forever: stealing Excalibur, the legendary sword of King Arthur. But after Alfred unwittingly delivers the sword into the hands of a man with enormously evil intentions, he sets off on an unlikely quest to try to right his wrong and save the world from imminent destruction. This gripping, fast-paced, hilarious novel is both a thrilling adventure story and an engaging account of one boy's coming of age.

Builds slowly - great finish

I wasn't sure how well I was going to like this book. It starts off a bit slowly, but then gains momentum and then hooks you. The narrator did a great job with the voices for each character, outstanding actually. I found it hard to believe I was listening to the same person since each voice was so distinct. I was sad when the story ended! I'd like to know how Alfred gets along. Perhaps there will be more adventures of Alfred Kropp.
