    " I can see why there are sequels, which is my first critique. It was a pretty good book, especially some of the explanations and science behind why things are what they are. I think having Merlin be a magical character who knew more than most was a great advantage because you had modern knowledge in the medieval setting. After accidentally starting an abridge version, when I switched to a full copy I realised a few good stories had been removed which I thought was a shame because (in the full version) they all kind of return in the end so I am not sure how the edited text would have covered that. The Sword in the Stone is such a famous story and I did not know there was more than one, and waiting as I read to find the familiar scenes I knew was interesting because it is a very drawn out story. I guess in a way the extra novels means that it is not condensed into one, and there is no hanging unexplained conclusion about what happened, but it is interesting that the key moment is such a small part of the first novel in terms of pages. The effect of course would be seen in the sequel. I do recommend that you read Sword in the Stone because it is well written and as I say, manages to teach you about things you never really thought about before. "

    " A hilariously tongue-in-cheek version of the old Arthurian legends - including references to Communism, concentration camps, Darwin, and other things that mark the modern authorship of the legends of the 13th century! Very clever! "

    " Great introduction to the real classics. "

    " A fun, lighthearted story. There were several points where I laughed out loud. Also delves into philosophy and, although it is set in midieval England, it has many intentional anachronisms. A good read. "
