The epitome of the chivalric novel, Ivanhoe sweeps listeners into Medieval England and the lives of a memorable cast of characters. Ivanhoe, a trusted ally of Richard the Lion Hearted, returns from the Crusades to reclaim the inheritance his father denied him. Rebecca, a vibrant, beautiful Jewish woman, is defended by Ivanhoe against a charge of witchcraft—but it is Lady Rowena who is Ivanhoe’s true love. The wicked Prince John plots to usurp England’s throne, but two of the most popular heroes in all of English literature—Richard the Lion Hearted and the well-loved, famous outlaw Robin Hood—team up to defeat the Normans and regain the castle.

The success of this novel lies with Sir Walter Scott’s skillful blend of historic reality, chivalric romance, and high adventure.

    " One of those classics that is not boring. Good thing it has a French dictionary in the back, because he uses a lot of French in this book. "

    " This was the book that really got me excited about reading. I wasn't so big into reading before. "

    " The book starts off slowly and very descriptively; it took me 50 pages to get into it. However, the excitement and adventure picked up and it was a fun read. It was written almost 200 years ago, so it has some racial/religious/sexist prejudices and stereotypes from the middle ages and 1800s that were probably real but I didn't love them. Overall it was a great classic combining fictiously the lives of Robin Hood, King Richard, and Ivanhoe. "
