1.5 The Once and Future King by T H White (Audiobook)
Series: The Once and Future King #1-5 Narrated by Neville Jackson This was supposed to represent a collection of five books, but the titles didn’t seem to be announced (or I kept missing them) so they all just blurred together. I liked the first book, The Sword in the Stone, and I’d give that on...

3.5 The Once and Future King - T.H. White
I'm not sure what I was expecting going into The Once and Future King, but it wasn't quite this. It's a reworking of Malory's Morte Darthur in a modern-day (well, 1960s) idiom; an attempt to explain the tragedy of Total War through the lens of a national myth. As it stands, the book is a composite...
