La gran novela de los torneos. La rivalidad entre sajones y normando es el telon de fondo de una de las novelas historicas mas populares de toda la literatura Ivanhoe. Ricardo, Corazon de Leon, a quien su cruel hermano Juan sin Tierra esta intentando desplazar, es la eminencia gris en esta gran novela de duelos, caballeria y torneos, en los cuales la lealtad y la caballerosidad guian una historia de amor. Esto quiere decir que Ivanhoe hay de todo, romance, aventura e historia y eso explica por que de ella se han hecho tantas adaptaciones para el cine y hasta la opera. Los personajes, que incluyen ademas a Robin Hood y una fascinante galeria de caracteres, hacen que el interes en esta obra no decaiga por un momento. El conocido actor Carlos Zambrano hace una lectura emotiva de esta hermosa novela historica.

    " This took longer than I expected, and was really hard for me to get into it, and when i did I was really sucked in. The story is great the characters likable, but some of the things that happen seem unbelievable. All in all it was enjoyable, I do wish that i could read it again sometime. "

    " Once you get past the first incredibly boring 75 pages or so, and get to the tournament, it starts to get interesting. After the tournament, everybody goes their own way and some are taken prisoner, including the beautiful Jewess, Rebecca. The prisoners have to be rescued and the honor of Rebecca has to be defended. I wish the fight between Sir Brian de Bois-Guilbert and Ivanhoe for Rebecca's freedom had been better. "

    " a novel published in 1820 about a time shortly after the 1066 conquering of England by the Normans of France. This is purported to be the first historical novel written by any one where historical facts is mixed in with fiction. Much of the novel deals with evil Prince John taking over England while Richard the Lion Hearted is off in Palestine fighting to free it from heathen influences. Robin Hood is introduced into the mix of things and plays a role in the success of the heroes. Lots of knightly battles and storming of castles. It gave me a good glimpse of life in the terrible 11th-12th century. The CHURCH is portrayed as an evil influence in the lives of the people more despotic than even the kingdom government. A Jew and his beautiful daughter play a role in the events of the story. How terrible the Jews were treated. Yet, the gallantry of the knights comes into play as the beautiful Jewish daughter is saved by the knights. I liked this book and would recommend it. It is somewhat difficult to read because of the archaic words that are used but, nonetheless, I feel I learned about that period of time in English history. Such distaste between the Saxons of England and the Normans of France. The Jewish woman, Rebecca, has been kidnapped by an evil knight, who belongs to a religious Christian order that kills and destroys in the name of God. He is trying to influence her to be his bride as he has her captive in a castle turret. She is dismissing him and telling him she would never have him. She makes this following statement. “Farewell! I envy not they blood-won honors—I envy not thy barbarous descent from northern heathens—I envy thee not they faith, which is ever in they mouth, but never in they heart nor in they practice.” What a great statement in calling him a hypocrite.
