Seriously, how do you review the pinnacle of all fantasy You can argue with me, but that, in my opinion, is what The Once and Future King is Sure, the evil enchantresses are stout and grumpy, the magical castles are made out of food, the lily maids are fat and of a certain age, and the knights in shining armor refer to one another as old chap s Oh and did I mention that King Arthur s nickname is the Wart Somehow, T.H White takes the legend, undresses it, and gives it a new kind of dignit Seriously, how do you review the pinnacle of all fantasy You can argue
In case anyone is wondering I picked this book up for a re read because of one throwaway line inWhy Be Happy When You Could Be NormalI haven t read this since high school, but I remember loving it almost giddily as a tween Since it s a big monster of a book, I took a steak knife to it, as I often do, and cut it in half so I could carry it about and read it on the subway without breaking my back Here s the new cover I put on my DIY d vol 2, from Vice magazine I find it creepy rat In case anyone is wondering I picked this book up for a re read because of one throwaway line inWhy Be Happy When You Could Be NormalI haven t read this since high school, but I remember loving it almost giddily as a tween Since it s a big monster of a book, I took a steak knife to it, as I often do, and cut it in half so I could carry it about and read it on the subway without breaking my back Here s the new cover I put on my DIY d vol 2, from Vice magazine I find it creepy rather fitting Anyway, I have been reading this for days and days and days and days and days exactly a month, it turns out thanks for keeping track, Goodreads , which is about four times longer than it takes me to read most books I m not at all sorry to have spent so long with it, as this book encompasses multitudes, and was just consistently enthralling the whole time I remembered it only sketchily from high school, mostly only the first book, much of which is retold in the Disney movie The S

3.5 Stars Way back when, I took a college class in Arthurian literature This book was not included in the course which had us read just about everything else written about the legendary king By the end of the semester I was sick of King Arthur, the round table, the Holy Grail and knights in general as a consequence, I didn t bother reading this book until now Before I finally picked it up I assumed it would be something like Camelot a crappy musical I heard Lerner and Lowe based the music 3.5 Stars Way back when, I took a college class in Arthurian literature Thi

A complex and multi tiered depiction of the epic Arthurian legend This book is unlike any other I ve read either focusing on the myth or simply in terms of fantasy writing While the story begins with The Sword in the Stone, a novel I had already read years ago it was refreshing to re familiarize myself with T.H White s eccentric and unique style of portraying the character of King Arthur as a child In fact I believe The Sword in the Stone is the deepest depiction of the childhood Arthur I ha A complex and multi tiered depiction of the epic Arthurian legend This book is unlike any other I ve read either focusing on the myth or simply in terms of fantasy writing While the story begins with The Sword in the Stone, a novel I had already read years ago it was refreshing to re familiarize myself with T.H White s eccentric and unique style of portraying the character of King Arthur as a child In fact I believe The Sword in the Stone i
