This is technically my brother's. I have been trying to listen to it while exercising with absolutely no success! The language is difficult enough - or at least, unusual enough - that I have to fully pay attention if I want to understand what is happening, and when I'm doing crunches or lifting weights that just doesn't happen. I think I'll definitely want to read the book at a later time, but as an audio book, in the purpose I'm trying to use it, this just doesn't work.

--

The legends of King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table have inspired some of the greatest works of literature--from Cervantes's Don Quixote to Tennyson's Idylls of the King. Although many versions exist, Malory's stands as the classic rendition. Malory wrote the book while in Newgate Prison during the last three years of his life; it was published some fourteen years later, in 1485, by William Caxton. The tales, steeped in the magic of Merlin, the powerful cords of the chivalric code, and the age-old dramas of love and death, resound across the centuries.

I listened to Le Morte D'Arthur because I was fascinated with the Arthur legend from The Mists of Avalon.

Le Morte D'Arthur is the definitive version of Malory's poem tale of The Life and Death of King Arthur. Easy listening it is not. Jacobi's performance is an excellent interpreter of the Arthurian legend.

Le Morte D'Arthur is unmodernized, beautiful classical Arthurian poetry and you may enjoy it without really understanding what just happened in the last scene.

Arrived in Arizona (USA) on Friday, December 18th to spend Christmas 2015. Not the sunny warm “vacation” I was expecting from the Sonoran Desert with the wacky weather they, and many others across the country are experiencing. Packing up today to get ready to ship out tomorrow to spend the first part of the New Year in Michigan. Holiday Blessings to all, and best wishes for a Bright and Shiny New Year!

This was difficult in places to follow. I think I might have followed the book more.

Going to send to another bookcrosser

I'm looking forward to listening to this.
Thank you!

I listened to this whilst spending the day in the kitchen preserving food from the garden. Stringing green beans and making pickles doesn't require much attention so I was able to focus on this tale of King Arthur and his knights of the table round.
I didn't really care for it as it is very repetitive and just seemed like it was going to drone on and on forever. Glad this is the abridged version as I can't even imagine listening to it any longer than I did.
