The legend of Arthur

This was the worse story of Arthur I ever heard. I’ve read tons of information about Arthur and this didn’t come close. I felt like I was a blind person at a play. Didn’t know who was who talking. And I didn’t appreciate all of the sound effects. Heavy breathing and grunting during sex. Yuck!!! I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. A waste of a credit!

Not the King Arthur Legend

This presentation was well performed. However, if you are looking for a King Arthur that is similar to the tales you have read in the past, this is not him. You will be disappointed. I, unfortunately, was disappointed. I was hoping for a story of a hero.

A strange realistic take on King Arthur

The story takes a strange take on King Arthur. by making everything hyper realistic, and changing so many of the things you knew into new things and strange references just to make the story believable in our world.

Great Performance!

I particularly enjoy listening to a full cast drama story. The production and sound effects are really good and makes the story even more entertaining. I have never been a big fan of King Arthur but I really liked this original drama.

A truly original retelling of the Arthurian legend

I listened to this audiobook almost non stop. The theme is about King Arthur, but the story is unique. Outstanding performances and production. Highly recommended!!
