A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court is both a whimsical fantasy and a social satire chock-full of brilliant Twainisms. Hank Morgan, a nineteenth-century American-a Connecticut Yankee-by a stroke of fate is sent back into time to sixth-century England and ends up in Camelot and King Arthur's Court. Although of average intelligence, he finds himself with knowledge beyond any of those in the sixth century, and he uses it to become the king's right hand man and to challenge Merlin as the court magician. Astounded at the way of life in Camelot, Hank does the only thing he can think of to do: change them. In his attempt to civilize medieval Camelot, he experiences many challenges and misadventures.

I checked out this audiobook for my 10 and 11 year old kids. They listened to part of it (after I said that they couldn't listen to other audiobooks until they finished this one). They sort of liked it but it definitely wasn't their favorite. I may try it in a couple or years again.

The professor is knowledgable, and is a good teacher. I was annoyed, however, slightly, by his continuous "ahhhhh" and "errrr" betweeen thoughts. It became distracting.

I once took a public speaking course. One of the primary goals of that course was to break that habit in the students..."ahhhh" "errrr' "ummmmm"
Obviusly, the good Professor has not had similar instruction.

The course is good though. Check it out!
