      A time traveling Merlin Stop it, White ol boy, you re killing me TH White s version of the King Arthur myth isunusual It s not a straight up retelling of the tale that tries to pinpoint any kind of actual date upon when the real King Arthur lived and base the story in that period It floats about, taking little bits of history from here, a legend or two from there, and cobbles them together It makes for an interesting fantasy.It s also distracting I m the sort that likes to get immersed in my fan [...]

      If you are looking for my review of this book please head for my long winded review of The Once and Future King as this book is Part 1 thereof If, on the other hand, you are not looking for my review Hello

      I ll say I really enjoyed parts of this book and I zoned out during other parts of this movie I m a huge fan of the Disney cartoon and the characters and scenes they left out for the most part were smart and I didn t miss them.I am glad that I read this classic and I want to finish the Once and future King There is a lot going on here and much of it is the myth of King Arthur I feel like this was written for a different time and when it was written it revolutionized the Arthurian Myth I still lo [...]

      The best thing for being sad is to learn something T.H White, The Sword in the Stone I loved it and will definitely write later as I read the follow ups with the kids My brats absolutely enjoyed it, even if many of the jokes, the funky blending of the Medieval with the Modern, might have floated a bit over their tiny wee heads We three my brood and me are excited to push forwad and read the rest of The Once and Future King Anyway, I think White perfectly captured the magic, power, fears and the [...]

      I read this when I was younger, but I don t remember loving it so much then I didn t remember how the narrative voice blended humour and beautiful descriptions, anachronisms and explanations of relatively historically accurate details I forgot how intertextual it is Merlin putting his fingers together like Sherlock Holmes, and all the hints at Lancelot s doings and so on, and Robin HoodBut it is all those things There are parts of it that are beautiful, parts that are so wonderfully well describ [...]

    6. Darkiknowwell on said:

      My love of the television show Merlin, could not get me through this book I finally finished it, and all I really have to say is that I shall not be starting The Once and Future King any time soon When I picked up this book up at a library book sale I had such high expectations for the story, which quickly evaporated within the first four chapters The book was not exactly poorly written and I ve read worse , but the tone of voice conflicts with the overall narration, which prevents the reader fr [...]

      The Disney movie is only about the first twenty pages of this bookd not really because they changed all the characters This book is sweet, intelligent, funny, and endearing.

    8. Deborah Pickstone on said:

      Can you believe I had never read this As I began it seemed so clearly for children that I was a little put off Then it occurred to me that I was reading one of the grandparents of modern magical fantasy and very funny in parts, too It comes complete with it s own made up language and a cast of utterly barmy characters J.K Rowling certainly read it it s all over HP and some items are taken straight from this book and embellished to fine art Not to mention it being written in Northern English Wart [...]

      Dissertation reread time I acquired a distaste for T.H White sometime during my MA, and I m not sure exactly why rereading The Sword in the Stone, I still rather loved it, with its gentle humour and the character of the narratorial voice and its understanding of each character I note that in my first review I noticed the way it treats Kay, which is a good sign for this dissertationIt s written in a conversational way, but it s also beautiful There are descriptions of the natural world that are a [...]

    11. Scott Sheaffer on said:

      This is a great book for anyone into medieval, Arthurian legend I enjoy stories about chivalry and white knights in search of damsels in distress but just can t get thru the lengthy and boring Sir Thomas Mallory text, La Muerte De Arthur This book is a fine combination between Alice in Wonderland and Sir Thomas s work In other words it s the entire story with fun and imagination I m glad this is only part of a series I m off to start book two.

    12. Mmars on said:

      If you decide to read this, look for an unabridged edition with the author s illustrations I read the Time Life edition There should be lots of words and terms you ve never encountered before Unless, of course, you are an expert on Norman England, falconry, hunting boars, long ago dog breeds, tilting, jousting and medieval butchery I want to label this a quirky fantasy It s certainly can t be taken seriously The audience seems to be juvenile, but the language, specifically the terminology, is ch [...]

    13. LPG on said:

      Still dunno why I loved this so immediatley so intensely Everything in it spoke to me Wart s lack of self worth, Merlyn s oddball lessons and habits, all the animals from the stupid falcon to the questing beast, and most of all the way White can be counted on to lose the thread of seriousness halfway through a sentence and throw in some pure sparkling nonsense.I started reading the next book in the series, and it seems to be written by a completely different guy Not in a bad way just jarring aft [...]

    14. Annie on said:

      I loved this book Went in thinking it would be some sort of taking itself seriously book of lore and ended up giggling at it on the subway many, many times The little 20th century pop culture references and Merlin getting flustered and Pellinore getting flustered and the Questing Beast and the hedgehog and the song of Wold King Cole and THE ANTS and and and just everything was so smart and silly and sweet And it begs to be read aloud Was kinda sad about the gender ratio boys had the majority of [...]

    15. QuincyK on said:

      UmOk, so the story part of the book is really good I like Merlin s attitude towards education education is experience and the stories where Wart gets turned into animals are cool and philosophical Except there is no squirrel story I was waiting the whole book for a squirrel story and there is none The pacing of the book is very good, and you learn a lot of new words from the medieval period I like how because Merlin has come from the future, he can mention things like cars and stuff like that, t [...]

      I found this on a list somewhere of books everyone should have read , so picked it up from the YA section of the library and dutifully did so It was a bit of a curate s egg The anachronisms were a bit strange and the plot was light to non existent I found the dialogue punctuation irritating after a while there were a lot of new paragraphs with the same speaker as the previous one, where the quotation marks suggested it should be a new one Often I wasn t sure which he was being referred to, eithe [...]

      The Sword in the Stone is the first book of The Once and Future King volumes written by T.H White during the same period Tolkien was writing The Lord of the Rings and C.S Lewis creating the world of Narnia other epic, fantasy novels, which gave birth to the new movement of magical realism a movement in which magical elements are part of an otherwise realistic environment The Once and Future King is such an Arthurian fantasy novel.Although it might appear as a novel for young readers, it s really [...]

      Because much was cut from the trilogy for the fix it Once and Future King, including some bits other readers describe that tempt me so much, like food and a duel._____________Too soon after reading the omnibus to read now, but my comment in the buddy read thread I found an early first edition in my library system and it s glorious So much was cut for the omnibus I don t have time energy to read it now, but I did skim through the wizard vs witch duel and that was fun I love the endaper illustrati [...]

      Esta novela ganadora del premio Hugo de 1939 cuenta las aventuras del peque o Verruga Arturo como pupilo del mago Merl n y de las pruebas que deber superar para cumplir con su destino y convertirse en aquel capaz de sacar la espada de la piedra Sencilla, divertida y emocionante, con un gran estilo narrativo f cil de seguir y una gran dosis de fantas a.

    20. lauren on said:

      I read this book after reading about White in H is for Hawk , not really having any expectations about it But I loved it Wart s relationship with nature and Merlyn and his family are all quite interesting And the writing is good, and knowing some about White and his closeted homosexuality and other issues made it all the fascinating to read.

    21. Shawn Mooney on said:

      Despite the wonderful writing and the lovely audio narration, I bailed on this at around the 25% mark Children s lit bores me to tears.

    22. Atharva Shah on said:

      I started with the first part of the Once and the Future King cause I wanted to explore into the Middle Age European Arthurian Legends I knew the basic characters like Arthur, Merlin here Merlyn , Sir Kay, Sir Ector, Lancelot, etc Many people recommended this book The Sword in the Stone which is the part 1 of the OATFK therefore I took it into consideration and started reading It was far better and at the same time far worse from my expectations The book is the classical retelling of the origin [...]

    23. Greg Deane on said:

      This is an amusing work for children, though entertaining for all ages, with a number of interesting mediaeval words, like austringer , alaunt solar room and fewmets The novel offers a good many insights into life in feudal households and the unfolding of the seasons in rural England White gives interesting insights into haymaking, jousting, the path to knighthood and archery But the story is heavy with anachronisms, so that Robin Hood who resisted the tyranny of King John in the 12th and 13th c [...]

    24. Thom on said:

      This is one of the famous Arthur stories, and I am fairly sure I saw the Disney film decades ago It did not make a large impression on me Certain aspects of the book are very good, and others are far less so.Young Wart is not descended from nobility like his companion Kay, and the two of them grow up in and around castle life Only towards the end of the novel is there any potential friction, as Kay starts through his knighthood ceremony, leaving Wart as the squire The finale of the novel moves [...]

    25. Samantha on said:

      I loved The Sword in the Stone I watched the Disney movie before I read the novel and I loved that too However, the book is a lot different from the movie and even though I know the story I still enjoyed it immensely The book is about a boy named Wart who lives with Sir Ector and his son, Kay, in a castle Wart never knew his real parents, but Sir Ector treats him like a son and Kay is a brother to him Wart s adventures begin when he is lost in the woods and stumbles upon the cottage of the wizar [...]

      3.5 StarsI think my plan was originally to read all of The Once and Future King and then review all the books at once But oh well, to hell with that plan I haven t started the other books in the collection and it s been like three months and I ve been sidetracked by too many other things, so oops.I will keep this pretty short since I am trying very frantically to catch up on reviews and I don t remember enough about what I was going to say to write a detailed review This is what I get for lettin [...]

      I had to re read this book after reading Helen Macdonald s extraordinary memoir H is for Hawk, which revealed much I did not know about T.H White and his life and sorrows and struggles A classic of children s fantasy, The Sword in the Stone is a funny and inventive story of King Arthur s childhood It was first published in 1938, but it feels incredibly fresh Much of the book is made up of a series of set pieces in which Arthur known as the Wart is changed into different animals like a fish, a fa [...]

    28. Stacy on said:

      Let me just say that I am REALLY proud of myself for finishing this book It s very well written and imaginative and descriptive, it s just not at all my genre So there were some days I had to tell myself, Okay, 10 minutes of this book and then you can read whatever you want to read It s on the Ambleside Year 7 list for two of my kids for next year so I wanted to pre read it, and if I m going to have them read it, I figured I d better read it, too I loved the character of Wart, and Merlyn is a ki [...]

    29. Gabriele on said:

      Sono rimasto al quanto deluso da questo libro Potrei essere forse influenzato dal film Disney da esso ispirato, ma non ho trovato l ironia, la magia e l eccentricit che mi aspettavo Complice forse una pessima traduzione ho trovato la narrazione assai noiosa e prolissa Anche le scene in teoria pi epiche o divertenti sono descritte senza riuscire realmente a convincere e nessun personaggio riesce ad entrarti nel cuore Credo proprio che per una volta il film si sia dimostrato migliore del libro e l [...]

    30. Janet on said:

      One of my very favorite books as a child what I loved most about it was being transformed into the various animals and other incarnations along with Wart, the future King Arthur How it felt to be a hawk in the mewsa fish in the moat the strangeness of becoming a tree, or a mountain, and viewing the world with that change in time perception Always stayed with me, that feeling, of being a mountain, what the world would look like if you lived so slowly it truly expanded my life I read it every few [...]
