Before high school I think, after the Disney animated film. ( )

Marvelous, just as I remember it from high school. But still, not enough to get me to want to read the rest. I mean, I did actually read it as part of The Once and Future King this time, and I did read the first couple chapters of the second story therein. But, despite White's talent, I still find myself utterly benumbed by Arthurian stories. Wart and his lessons, great. Arthur the king and his wars and all those love affairs, not so much. ( )

I really did enjoy this. I was swept away into the world. Its a strange sort of book and seems to exist in a world all of its own making.
A really enjoyable reading experience. ( )
