Alfred Kropp was a classic underachiever. Alfred’s family life was difficult. His father split before Alfred was born and his mother died of cancer while Alfred was a teenager. However, Alfred was destined for greatness.
Alfred learns the truth about his father, while helping a modern day knight retrieve Excalibur. Alfred steps up to the challenge and becomes a hero.
I thought the story was very interesting and there were several twists that kept my attention. The main characters seemed personable. I could relate to their feelings about the circumstances surrounding them.
I give the book an A+
