The Seeing Stone (Arthur Trilogy #1) - Kevin Crossley-Holland 6.64   65

It is 1199 and young Arthur de Caldicot is waiting impatiently to grow up and become a knight. One day his father's friend Merlin gives him a shining piece of obsidian and his life becomes entwined with that of his namesake, the Arthur whose story he sees unfold in the stone. In this many-layered novel, King Arthur is seen as a mysterious presence influencing not just one time and place, but many. The 100 short chapters are almost like snapshots – not only of the mythic tales of King Arthur, but the earthy, uncomfortable reality of the Middle Ages.
