After Fighting in the Holy Crusades, Ivanhoe returns to reclaim his love, stolen from him by his own father who intends to marry her into Saxon Royalty as the descendant of a long dead king. King Richard, with little interest in ruling the Kingdom of England, has allowed his brother, the despicable Prince John, to rule in his absence, sending the land into dismal times. After his capture, Richard escapes Austria, where he travels in disguise awaiting a rising to overtake Prince John and reclaim the throne.
The novel is a riveting adventure of jousting knights, damsels in distress, burning castles, escape and capture, and includes the famous Robin Hood and his Merry Men of bandits in an attempt to save the true King and Ivanhoe.

One of Walter Scott’s Best Works!
Hats off to the narrator, David McCallion, for doing a wonderful job on this read. His voice was a perfect fit for this story transporting you to Medieval England with his delightful British accent and character voices...
The story follows a young man during a time of turmoil in England, where he finds himself in the midst of the fight between the Normans and the Saxons, pitting all of England against each other. Filled with exciting adventure, English mythology, and many jousting knights, the narrative will draw you right into the adventure from the very beginning.
Ivanhoe by Walter Scott is truly a work of art that many can and will enjoy. Don't think twice about adding it to your collection!

Excellent Rendition of a Classic
Ivanhoe the tale needs no introduction, if you are expecting the movie you will not find it although for Hollywood the movie did stay close. The performance was excellent marred only, strange to say, the book itself. This was meant for reading not performing so sometimes the conversations get a little clunky. Well worth the time.
