Editorial Reviews

Many authors, from Geoffrey of Monmouth in the 12th century through the romantics and up to current times, have interpreted the King Arthur story, mixing mythologies and legends with history, religion, and magic. Here is Sir James Knowles’ 1860 take on Arthur. Knowles, living during the Victorian revival of Arthur, gives a story of nobility and gallantry. Arthur appears in his classic adventures and battles emphasizing the concept of Arthur as an English origin myth. Not, perhaps, the most remarkably written entry in the world of Arthur, this volume makes up for lack of style with action and heroism. Eric Brooks has fun with his performance in this audiobook, creating colorful characterizations and exaggerating the drama almost to the point of playful caricature.

This was painful!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Changing the narrator could have improved this book.

Would you recommend The Legends of King Arthur and His Knights to your friends? Why or why not?

Not the audiobook.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His voice was not my taste for a good listen. He was sometimes hard to understand, and his voice did not flow.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really.

Heavy attention required for Arthurian Legend

Language and terms are tough to follow at times and require a dictionary at hand while reading. The legend is one that should be well known and read because classics are cherished by many avid readers.

Very basic

Was excited to her this story as i like the era...However it soon became very repetitive with a 'smote' every few minutes and all knights constantly fighting each other for no particular reason. This book has no finesse!
