Reviews

Very good

(5 stars)

I listened to the whole book. the narrator does a very good job at paced reading, and makes good attrmos at voicing the characters. The story itself is a lovely introduction to the Arthurian legends, though I have learned that this book does deviate a bit from original tales to make it more accessible for children. I.e. some tales have been simplified and adultery removed. Overall very good, would recommend!

Good Narration

(4 stars)

Narrator is good. The stories aren't particularly special, but the language is easy to understand and they're good as bedtime stories.

very good. The reader did a great job.

Nice, family-friendly foray into Arthurian legend

(4 stars)

My 6- and 9-year old sons enjoyed this book as an early introduction to the stories of Arthur and his knights of the Round Table. As other reviewers have noted, the more adult themes are glossed over or omitted (i.e. no adultery and minimal descriptions of death and gore) while highlighting the gallantry, brave deeds, piety, and courage of the major characters of each chapter. The reader herself does a pretty fair job of the reading through out, and my boys were rapt listeners of most of the chapters. I myself found that in listening to more than a chapter or two in a sitting, I sometimes tuned it out as a pleasant drone. But overall, recommended as a pleasant listen.

Boring

(2 stars)

One star, with an additional star to the narrator for her excellent reading and for putting me to sleep. I don't think I'll be pursuing any more legends about King Arthur; I didn't enjoy this and found it dull.

I really enjoyed this story

(5 stars)

For some reason it captivated me though I well knew the tale. There was an innocent wisdom in the rendering
