It was so chock-full with politic I almost couldn't read it. The main thing that Merlyn believed due to human physiology the only political form that suits it is the one that relies on individualism, just like communism suits ant the best. Merlyn and his council of animal was so righteous about it, ramming their opinion down in Arthur's throat. Poor tired King Arthur who managed to summon back his love for England at that time he became the real king for me. So I couldn't really enjoy reading it. More so, since his experience in ant colony and as geese was similar to the previous time to the point he used the same sentence. The only redemption for the book is King Arthur and his love for England.
