Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This collection, at just 99 cents, is the best one for your money. You get 5 major works of Arthurian lore plus an overview of the historical Arthur. The 5 works are in the public domain and as such are available free elsewhere, but the inclusion of the historical information is well worth the purchase of this collection. The formatting is excellent, with few if any issues (such as odd sentence placement) in that regard. It could only be better if it included 'The Once and Future King' and 'The Mists of Avalon', but since those are not in the public domain it is understandable why they are not here. Highly recommended.
Well formatted and what a collection for under a buck! Many hours of enjoyable reading. Didn't realize there were different versions of the tale. Explains some differences discussed in past conversations on this subject.
With this collection you get the five books listed in the subtitle. I don't know that I personally would have included Twain's book in this collection but the other four were good choices for this theme. I've read all of these books individually in various translations and I will say that the one's used here were excellent.
