I enjoyed this series in books one and two, but as I approached the halfway mark and got to the finish line, it ended up getting a bit boring and difficult to read. Still, not a bad book and I'm glad I read it! Check it out if you're a fan of Arthurian tales. ( )

I read this decades ago and then 'lost' the paperback copy. Passed a bookshop last night staggering home from the pub (me not the bookshop) and saw it in the window, felt compelled today to go back for it. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Summary: T.H. Whites' masterful retelling of the Arthurian legend is an abiding classic. Here all five volumes that make up the story are published together in a single volume, as White himself always wished. Here is King Arthur and his shining Camelot, beasts who talk and men who fly; knights, wizardry and war. It is the book of all things lost and wonderful and sad; the masterpiece of fantasy by which all others are judged. (From publisher)… (more)
