Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp by Rick Yancey
Alfred Kropp, fairly average in everything except his size, which usually seems to get in the way. No family, no friends... when he helps steal the sword Excalibur and sets in motion a series of events that could possibly trigger the end of civilization as we know it, he convinces that last of the knights of the Order to take him along, and together they seek to reestablish possession of the sword and wipe out the bad guys before the bad guys wipe them out.
For being such a large book, this is a relatively fast read -- short chapters and plenty of action help speed things along. If you like underdogs and tales of Arthur or just books with action and adventure, this is a good read for you. I quite enjoyed it -- kept me glued.
