did not like it
bookshelves: fantasy-sci-fi
Read in March, 2010

So I was on an (accidental) Arthurian kick and I was looking for a book to read and found this in our library. All I can say is ptfffff....
This was terrible. The characters were dull, the story was boring, and the writing was sleep inducing. EVen realizing this is targeted at a younger audience, I think it was bad. The author had the boys go through several apparently random interactions with people (one of them even being Robin Hood, who is actually Robin Wood..) and ties it all together in the last half dozen pages.

Alyssa Go with The Once and Future King instead - a much better version of the same story.
