The Once and Future King
The extraordinary story of a boy called Wart – ignored by everyone except his tutor, Merlin – who goes on to become King Arthur.
T.H. White’s masterful retelling of the Arthurian legend is an abiding classic. The Once and Future King, contains all five books about the early life of King Arthur (The Sword in the Stone , The Witch in the Wood , The Ill-Made Knight, The Candle in the Wind and The Book of Merlyn).
Exquisite comedy offsets the tradegy of Arthur’s personal doom as White brings to life the major British epic of all time with brilliance, grandeur, warmth and charm

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. Read full review
