Review

'Am I alone in thrilling to this noble throwback to the age of Celtic romance? .. our Prime Minister is a grinning charmless twerp; our Archbishop of Canterbury has as much spiritual charisma as a raw potato; and the House of Windsor is dullsville. I'd dump the whole pack of them tomorrow and replace them with a single Royal, Spiritual and Political leader -- King Arthur.' (Evening Standard)

I saw the author post a link in some group on Facebook for a mere 2 quid. Come to find out that offer was only for people in the UK. Since I'm in Sweden I have to go to Amazon.com for my Kindle books (which is stupid & irritating) but once at the US site the price was over $8.00 - I asked the author about that discrepancy but he did not respond. With the current exchange rate it should have been just a bit over $3.00. It hacked me off, so I paid the high price thinking to destroy this book in a review. I cannot.

This book was awesome from page one and never let up. It had me grinning so much my face hurt, with more than a few out loud laughs. The way he drew this modern-day King Arthur was just flat out perfect. So, instead slamming over the price, I'm saying it was well worth it, and I hope he gives us some other books. I'd even like to see the continuing adventures of this extremely likable King in Druid's clothing. Five Stars.

What a brilliant read this was!
I live in South Africa, so am pretty far removed geographically from the stage of this tale. But no one is removed from the book's message: that the Earth is under threat from us, that good people exist who are fighting for Her, and that it's entirely possible that the spirit of Arthur of Britain is presently animating an ex-biker named John Rothwell.

What would make a man believe he was the reincarnation of the legendary King Arthur? What would it take for that man, who was born John Timothy Rothwell, to change his name by deed-poll and give up his secure and 'normal' way of life to live as a modern version of that king, to be a modern King Arthur? You can find out in The Trials of Arthur.

This book takes you right into the very strange but at the same time very inspiring life of Arthur Uther Pendragon, and how he became a druid chief and an eco-warrior, of how he found the modern-day Excalibur, and of how he gathered a band of supporters, knights and ladies sworn to the Ancient Virtues of Truth, Honour and Justice. It details his many campaigns and skirmishes with the law, the many times he was arrested for breaking the so-called "exclusion zone" around Stonehenge, and the protest camps like Twyford Down. It tells the tale of a man doing his utmost to save the land from the forces of destruction in Britain's "time of greatest need".

Being a very colourful character in dress and behaviour, has meant that Arthur has often featured in stories in the newspapers and been a guest on TV programmes too. He has used his media-celebrity status as a platform for getting his message out. But it is not always an easy life being a modern version of King Arthur and this book looks at many of the trials and ordeals he has faced. It looks at how he has always stood his ground and often won in the end.

The Trials of Arthur is often humorous, fast-paced, and at the same time philosophical. There is an undeniable magic in Arthur's life that is very hard to ignore.

I've been a fan of CJ Stone's writing since stumbling across his book 'Fierce Dancing' in the Bakewell bookshop in Derbyshire around twelve years ago. I was entranced. I'd finally found someone who wrote about the world that I'd been fascinated by long before my first Glastonbury festival when I was sixteen. I'd watched documentaries about New Age Travellers on TV, read about the Donga tribe of road protesters and listened to my tape of 'Levelling the Land' by the Levellers as if it was sacred. Twenty years later, I've got myself a part-time place in that world, volunteering on festival crews and writing about underground counter-culture. However, CJ Stone was really immersed in that life and brought it alive, writing about the inspiring power of the road protest movement, as well as pointing out its failings and the ridiculous beliefs of people who take all that "tofu welding" a bit too seriously! He's always had a talent for portraying the eccentric characters of the "alternative" world, including their failings, such as refusing to buy their own beer, making them really come off the page.
That's why CJ Stone was just the right person to write the biography of Arthur Pendragon, the main who claims to be the reincarnation of King Arthur. I've owned this book since it was first published and have read it several times in its original format. The Kindle version adds to the spiritual dimension of the book. I even lent it to my mum, who met King Arthur at an Autumn Equinox at Stonehenge, where she was volunteering with the National Trust. We've both become pagans, in a quiet way (no cloaks!), and it's partly thanks to this book that I spent a rainy summer solstice at Avebury stone circle a few years ago, hoping to spot King Arthur.

(r)evolutionary, humorous and deep

Regardless whether you believe in reincarnation or not, John Rothwell makes for a convincing Arthur Pendragon.

He starts off as a cider swigging biker with an outlaw motorcycle gang looking for trouble when he begins to question the authorities regarding their anti pagan stance. Anyone who has enjoyed The Mists of Avalon will be able to draw parallels between Arthur and our modern day hero who has a knack for attracting a faithful group of people into his orbit, and who turns up at the right time and place to fearlessly fight for the good cause, more often successful than not.

We also meet CJ Stone and see how his life coincides with Arthur's and as it's very hard to talk about this book without including spoilers so let me just say that it's written in the typical CJ Stone voice: (r)evolutionary, humorous and deep. What else do we want from a book? An original read if you are into paganism and question the mess our world is in. An inspiring read if you want to make a difference and wonder how!
