    " Oh. I like this stuff. I get the overblown language and the time period mistakes in culture. But, the plot twists and the heraldry. The chivalry and secret hideouts. The disguises and mysteries of mixing cultures. It all reinforces may favorite conspiracy, to wit: The Europeans returned from the Crusades with the knowledge gained from Saladin and the Saracens to improve the life of the people and leave the Dark Ages. The twist is, it did not come from Christ, it came from their adversary. Since this was a book from the early 19th century, it is either a continuation of the truth being handed down, or a coincidence with theories put forth in later work, such as Holy Blood, Holy Grail, and The DaVinci Code. The fact that Scott's patriotism to Scotland comes out in the end is just elegant. "

    " Not my favorite of his - that would be Ivanhoe, which comes next and is one of my all-time favorites - but a nice suspenseful light-hearted romp none the less. Though a little windy at times. One wishes, like the jousters, that he would just get to the point! "

    " Enjoyable, but not my favorite from Scott. Portrayal of Saladin a bit too gushing. "

    " Very interesting... But dreary to a young girl in these times..:/ "
