This audio book is only available in German at this time. The editors

First I felt very sceptical about this project because the topic is already well-known, and adding also an audio book to a variety of existing versions seems risky.

My prejudices proved to be wrong after listening to the first ten minutes. Besides the beautiful cover and six nicely styled CDs with eight hours playing time the first part of the saga is presented with a lot of fantasy. It´s like the prehistory of the legend that provides the framework. Who expects the authentic story will be disappointed, because a funny tale is told in modern means, without destroying the medieval touch: Merlin instructs the young Wart, who will later become King Arthur, and guides him through a lot of magic adventures. Merlin, who is also a time-traveller, displays many modern attitudes, and also all additional characters are well-represented with weird characteristics. I´ve hardly ever smiled and laughed so much listening to an audio book.

So let´s hope the sequels will be as good as this one.
