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.

    " 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. "

    " I didn't want this book to end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard | 1/22/2014

    " 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. "

    " I was super busy when I read this book. It took me a long time to finish it. So, since the story was broken up because I would read it here and there over the course of a few months and that didn't help. But, I did really like the story. It was a good book and I liked the way it was written! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brice | 1/13/2014

    " The first time I read it, it seemed like an adventure story. After this last time, it was definitely a romance. Sir Walter Scott tends to use way too much flowery language and it tends to bore children that are listening to the story being read. My children are happy that Ivanhoe is done and we are back to reading the Narnia series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 1/12/2014

    " What's not to love about this? It has Richard Lionheart, Robin Hood, chivalry, romance, jousting (I loved the jousting) razing castles, revenge, daring do and evil baddies. At times, especially the long conversations, I found the language a little tiring, but overall, I really enjoyed this tale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Autumn | 1/5/2014

    " Ivanhoe features knights errant, chivalry, jousts, archery, fair ladies, Robin Hood, Richard the Lion-Hearted, Saxons and Normans, the Crusades, besieged castles--all in all, a rollicking good story. You just have to get past Scott's wordiness. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julia | 1/5/2014

    " a bunch of knights, friars, lords, and outlaws run around and are horrible to a couple of Jews. The End. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda Horn | 11/22/2013

    " A good read. A classic. Everyone needs to review the classics often. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dalen Yeah | 10/13/2013

    " A classic story of Anglo-Saxons giving it to those Norman-French bastards! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorelei | 10/3/2013

    " An excellent read - sadly ruined for me by reading it in high school. So glad I got a chance to really appreciate it rereading it today. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristi | 9/17/2013

    " Just finished this, and it was really good. I did not know the story at all, so it was really fun to find a Robin Hood/King Richard/knights and chivalry story. A good read. "

    " This really was a DNF for me as I was a young teenager when I started it and it seemed "old fashioned" to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alanna R | 4/8/2012

    " I wasn't expecting much but it really was a great read (balance the offensive caricature that is Isaac against the extremely sympathetic and noble character of Rebecca) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 11/10/2011

    " Interesting book I read in high school. Classic tale of the knights templar and their encounters with all kinds of people from nobility to swineherds. "

    " There are times I wanted to skip ahead of the description, but I'm glad I didn't.

    The ending wraps up a little too neat for me, but well worth waiting for. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shiraz | 5/9/2011

    " This does make me want to go read a more of Scott. "

    " this is not a light read. But once you get into the literary style it is quite a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 4/20/2011

    " Very exciting. Plenty of swords and romance and lances and intrigue. "

    " I would have to say that this book is in my top 5 favorites!!! I LOVED it! The characters: FANTASTIC! Even the villains were great! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 4/5/2011

    " I was surprised to find Robin Hood in this story!! I must admit I didn't know he as a part of this THe language made reading the book a bit challenging. I kept my dictionary close by and found the read enjoyable. Lots of knights in shining armour along with damsels in distress. Good fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dellitt | 3/26/2011

    " It's been a long time since I read this. It's a lovely story, the classic romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trisha | 3/10/2011

    " Iconic. THe paintings of N C Wyeth just lept out at me from the words. The story is verbatim the plot of E Flynn's movie of Robin Hood--what a surprise to find it all here! And the treatment of Rebecca, the jewess, and her father--amazing. Excellent read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jade | 3/9/2011

    " I am a sucker for classics. I'm just kind of weird like that. I liked the kind of alternate view of Robin Hood presented in this. A little too wordy in places, but that's pretty much to be expected. "

Author Walter ScottWalter Scott was born in Edinburgh in 1771, and attended university there, following his father's footsteps and becoming a barrister. After publishing numerous works of poetry, he wrote his first novel in 1814.
