Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.5 stars; 67 reviews)

Masterful artist, illustrator, and storyteller Howard Pyle brings new life to the legends of King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table. The first in Pyle's series of four books about King Arthur, this volume takes readers to the very beginning and the miracle of Arthur pulling the sword from the anvil and claiming his birthright as King of Britain. We are reintroduced to Pyle's Lady Guinevere, the Enchanter Merlin, the evil Morgana Le Fay, the chivalrous knights Sir Pellias and Sir Gawaine and follow their noble adventures. A book to be enjoyed by children and adults, alike. - Summary by Jill Engle (11 hr 11 min)

Reviews

well read


(5 stars)

some slight differences in name pronunciations between readers but overall a great classic story to listen to.

Multi-dimensional tales, several good readers.


(4 stars)

This book had a lot of things going on at once, and presented a new and interesting view of Arthur and his knights. I especially enjoyed the stories about the deeds of the knights, which in most tales, are more glossed over than anything. A bit of it could be long winded, but most portions were paced well. Definitely good for driving long distances. Looking forward to the next installment.

Ok


(4.5 stars)

It’s a very good classic but I dislike how different people read different chapters in my opinion only one person should read a book and Should be understood be the listener

Take note that the narrators are different every time.


(1.5 stars)

The changes of voices can get a little annoying and some of the readers read slow, it makes them sound like it’s their first time speaking English; I know English is hard to learn but just don’t read the book if you can’t pronounce the words. Howard Pyle also seems like he added too many details. Nevertheless I’m glad that there are more versions of this book.

worst book ever
