Book: A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court
Author: Mark Twain
This is my 25th read for this year
This is the story of Hank Morgan. He receives a blow to the head and wakes up in Medival England at the time of King Arthur. He is an engineer and his uses that, and all of his knowledge of the upcoming centuries, to convince the people he is a wizard. He uses his powers to modernize those around him - "inventing" things very far ahead of the time. This attracts attention and problems start for Arthur and Hank.
This was an interesting book. A little dry at times, but overall pretty good. I found it entertaining that Merlin is outshined by Hank and his technology (that he passes off as magic) and that Hank becomes Arthur's personal sorcerer. It was an interesting look at what would happen if an engineer improved the lives of people in the 6th century with said technology and how the future would look if that happened.
