Publisher's Summary

Arthur Prescott is happiest when surrounded by the ancient manuscripts of the Barchester Cathedral library, nurturing his obsession with the Holy Grail and researching his perennially unfinished guidebook to the medieval cathedral. But when Bethany Davis arrives in Barchester to digitize the library's manuscripts, Arthur's tranquility is broken. Appalled by the threat of modern technology, he sets out to thwart Bethany, only to find in her a kindred spirit - and a fellow Grail fanatic. Bethany soon joins Arthur in a quest to find the lost Book of Ewolda. Arthur and Bethany peel back layers of history, and when the future of the cathedral itself is threatened, Arthur and Bethany's search takes on grave importance, leading to discoveries about the Grail and each other.

A Lot of Fun...But

What did you like best about The Lost Book of the Grail? What did you like least?

The story was fine...a little misogynistic (a promiscuous male character who preys on women, romantic leads with a major age difference), but my issue was with the narration. The narrator has a lovely English accent, until he attempts an American accent. The main female character sounds like a 1930's gangster. I've lived in the U.S. for a long time, and I've never heard nineteen pronounced "nine-een." I barely made it through the reading.

a delightful listen!

Where does The Lost Book of the Grail rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

near the top, for those of a humorous bent--


What other book might you compare The Lost Book of the Grail to and why?

the author's prior books, but I think this is the best one.


What does Charles Armstrong bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

that divine British accent of course. I thought he did all the characters very well. I've seen criticism of how the American was voiced, and I agree that's the weakest, but it really didn't bother me.


If you could take any character from The Lost Book of the Grail out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Arthur of course. he is hilarious.


Any additional comments?

looking up the narrator to see what else he has done. He is just amazing. this was a perfect pairing of book and narrator.
