The Once and Future King
The whole world knows and loves this book. It is the magical epic of King Arthur and his shining Camelot; of Merlin and Owl and Guinevere; of beasts who talk and men who fly, of wizardry and war. It is the book of all things lost and wonderful and sad. It is the fantasy masterpiece by which all others are judged.

Excellent. I found myself in constant awe of White's art. He often sets a scene or outward aspect of the character with just a few words -- then proceeds to nail the psychology of the interaction with an aside or bit of commentary.
The last chapter was was hard reading - not so much the ideas but knowing the end of the story and finding Arthur's "testament" insufficient to that which came before.
Looking forward to reading 'The Book of Merlin' should I get time.

The very beginning and end did not age well, and some of it was a bit graphic for me, but the vast majority of the book was amazing. A must-read for people who like Arthurian legend. Read full review
