Bought 16 Apr 2007 – charity shop

The “lost” 5th book of the Once And Future King series. I got very excited when I found this, but actually, it Wasn’t Very Good. Heavy-handed political satire, demonstrating Communism through the ants, etc – just didn’t really work and was very clumsy. I did like the idea that Merlyn was timeless and had seen all of the centuries after Arthur died, and the bit rounding up things at the end was quite good, but I think I am going to let this go.
