The Once and Future King by T.H. White

This book is the classic story of King Arthur and Camelot. I really enjoyed the story and the book. I have always liked the story of King Arthur and although the book is really sad in many ways, it is also a great story about overcoming the evils around us. The reason the rating is so low is because later in the story there is a lot of discussion about adultery with Lancelot and Guinevere. The book is split into four parts. The first is my favorite since it covers the story of the sword in the stone off of which Disney based the classic movie of the same name. Each of the other parts covers a different stage of Arthur’s life. This is a classic piece of literature and is a great read, but may not be the best for younger readers.
