    My sister says that this is one of my niece s favorite books and as such I chose to read it to break up my one directional reading lately of journals, arcs and other nonfiction I haven t had a chance to read much of the Arthurian cycle but due to my deep study of mythoi I can already tell that this particular retelling is quite an anemic insult to the original cycle As a result the events that are presented in the book are just the barest minimal salute to main events in the Arthurian lore i My sister says that this is one of my niece s favorite books and as such I chose to read it to break up my one directional reading lately of journals, arcs and other nonfiction I haven t had a chance to read much of the Arthurian cycle but due to my deep study of mythoi I can already tell that this particular retelling is quite an anemic insult to the original cycle As a result the events that are presented in the book are just the barest minimal salute to main events in the Arthurian lore if even that, the characters have been ironed into nothingness and the rich detail of fantasy has been but all evaporated up It is truly sad that this is a beginner book and one considered a Classic What this means is that the duplicitous conceiving of Arthur, the quest of the Holy Grail, the claiming of the Seat Perilous, the battle of the two wryms, the challenge of the Green Knight, the infamous affair, the hope of the entombed Merlin and so muchare missing Something that I have to give props to, though, is that even though it is an introductory book for those who haven t read the deeper Classics this one is a lotfriendlier to the portrayal of certain members such as Guinevere and Launcelot while Guinevere s only awful deeds are how she is portrayed to a disguised Arthur There is basically almost no sexual immorality in the book but instead a lotbattling and bloodshed so for those who are looking for a clean read there is a middle ground if you want to see it as such The illustrations are definitely not some of the best either Most of the times the faces of the characters are some type of mangling and I notice that there is a lotblack used than is normal All in all my niece may enjoy this particular retelling and so may other younger audience or those who just need a quick read But otherwise if you want adventure, courtly love, a story of morals and all the fantastical complexities known to Arthur this is one book to steer clear from

    I thought that this book was pretty good I admired King Arthur and his knights, and I enjoyed all of the jousting and fighting I also really liked the fact that the knights valued women, God, and justice so much Overall, this was an easy and exciting read that didn t have any down time However, there were so many characters and the chapters were so separated into individual adventures that I thought this book lacked some cohesiveness The stories and characters were great, but I wish the wri I thought that this book was pretty good I admired King Arthur and his knights, and I enjoyed all of the jousting and fighting I also really liked the fact that the knights valued women, God, and justice so much Overall, this was an easy and exciting read that didn t have any down time However, there were so many characters and the chapters were so separated into individual adventures that I thought this book lacked some cohesiveness The stories and characters were great, but I wish the writing had been done a little bit differently

    I was very ignorant when it came to these legends of King Arthur and Merlin and I was curious to knowI ve had this book for years but never read it I started to growinterest in the mythology of Camelot when it was first introduced on the television show, Once Upon a Time The book starts off as Arthur as an infant Merlin visits Arthur s father telling him about how his father will die very soon and that he must give his infant son to him since he is destined to have great power I was very ignorant when it came to these legends of King Arthur and Merlin and I was curious to knowI ve had this book for years but never read it I started to growinterest in the mythology of Camelot when it was first introduced on the television show, Once Upon a Time The book starts off as Arthur as an infant Merlin visits Arthur s father telling him about how his father will die very soon and that he must give his infant son to him since he is destined to have great power and needs to be raised properly Merlin gives the son to a man named Sir Ector Sir Ector promises to never tell anyone including Arthur himself about his great power The power is Excalibur of course the sword that only one noble person is able to pull I like stories about fate and destiny but this one was very disappointing and not fun at all to read.I understand that this book is short and is basically a summary of a legend that was written and told thousands of years ago but still Characters are very bland I understand that since this book is only 240 pages there isn t enough room for character personality and development but even Arthur the main character was bland and had no personality to him In the Once Upon a Time version of Camelot King Arthur was very much a memorable and not bland as a character Once Arthur pulls the sword out of the stone his father Sir Ector tells him everything About how that he is not his real father ,Merlin and his destiny Arthur is still just a teenager at this time and is still too young to truly understand everything that has happened and all the power that the sword holds.In the next chapter many years have past since Arthur first pulled excalibur and is now the King I was watching a movie over the weekend and in the movie they did something similar They did those massive leaps in time which I very much liked I didn t mind that much in this book as well but I wished they would have done somethingwith this leap in time Now that Arthur has finally become king he will have to deal with many foes The first foe he fights as the king is the Black Knight The Black Knight did do some pretty harsh damage to Arthur and almost killed him Merlin came to Arthur s rescue and had him healed.He wasn t that important to the plot and was just there for the sake of being there.This next part of the book is the romantic part I ve never been a fan of romance at all except for in Indian films Arthur pretends to be a gardener boy to see his love Guinevere Guinevere finds out about it and loves him After the marriage the round table is established Merlin warns Arthur that when the 50th spot is taken of the round table is taken the kingdom will fall and it does Now that I ve pretty much addressed the story of the book I would like to give a bitof my opinion on what I actually thought of the book This book tried to cram way too much plot in for only two hundred pages So much plot that would have been interesting in the story was just crammed in there and felt poorly written They could have taken out a lot of stuff that wasn t really all that important and focused onimportant things such as the battle between Arthur and Sir Lancelot Sir Lancelot was the reason why King Arthur s reign fell but was only introduced in the second to last chapter That was too late in my opinion As I said earlier I really wanted to lookin these ancient legends of King Arthur and Merlin and see how different people portray them Once Upon a Time has there own special twist on this legend as I m sure many other people have through books, movies and television shows If you are like me and these kind of stories interest you don t bother reading this book Find another book or do some other research on this legend This book had potential to be good and be short at the same time if maybe they skipped some parts of the story This is a legend after all and legends are told differently In conclusion to this I would probably give this book two out of five stars The pros of the book being nice and easy to read,and gorgeous pictures The cons being very bland characters, flat protagonist, and too much crammed in the story

    Until I read this, I thought of the movie First Knight being the story, but I realised some points in the story were different than the movie In the movie, I didn t recall Vivien, Nymue being the name of The Lady of the Lake and so many Round Table Knights fighting each other.


  9. Mario Vilche Mario Vilche says:

    I love to read about King Arthur, and this book was great however I do feel it lacked a bit of action and focused a lot about irrelevant things However this book is still a great pick up and I might re read it in the future.
