    Description

    This is one of Sir Walter Scott's greatest adventures, set amongst the roaring battles of the struggle between the Normans and the Saxons for control of medieval England. It deals with the rivalry between King Richard the Lion-Heart and his brother, John.

    We follow the adventures, skirmishes and romances of the hero, Ivanhoe, a Saxon knight loyal to King Richard, as he attempts to survive the England of King John alongside the disguised Richard and, of course, Robin Hood.

    Author Sir Walter Scott, first Baronet (1771-1832), was a prolific Scottish historical novelist and poet. His father was a lawyer who had brought himself from the family's rural background into legal eminence in Edinburgh, married a well-born girl and was very anxious that his children should continue his process of advancement for the Scott family.

    Scott himself was an early victim of polio, only just surviving by dint of being sent back to what remained of the family seat to live with his grandmother. It was she who introduced him to Scottish folklore and ballads, which were to be so influential in his writing career, with novels such as Ivanhoe, Rob Roy, The Lady of the Lake, Waverley, The Heart of Midlothian and The Bride of Lammermoor.

    A brilliant rendering of a classic

    What did you love best about Ivanhoe?

    It gives a better reading of history and culture than dry academic discourse. And within a children's tale there is more nuance and sincerity than most of modern politics.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The swineherd. His honesty moved me and his predicament has a telling similarity to the one of the modern middle class.

    What about James Cosmo’s performance did you like?

    His voice. It was not overtly full of fake rural tones, but naturally so. Romantic in the spirit of the book.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Cedric's destiny and his struggle to keep his family and his nation alive.

    Stellar story, superb narration. A grand adventure. Very long, but worth the time investment, thanks to the narrator.

    20 very well spent hours

    What an incredible story of high minded idealism, base selfishness, romance, all written in an incredibly elegant style. James Cosmo is pitch perfect. In a Donald Trumpian era of cheap and vile discourse, Ivanhoe is a breath of fresh air and an inspiration to the highest and most noble within all of us.

    Ivanhoe is tough to listen to

    accent of the reader and colloquial language makes it hard to understand . better to watch the movie

    Very well performed.

    I probably won't endure another Scott novel, but I am glad I toughed this one out. It kept my interest, but that is in great part because this reader is very, very good. Certainly if you are a Walter Scott fan, check this one out. It is superbly well performed.

    Perfect audio book experience.

    Loved the story, the nuanced and dry comic relief with dramatic deep storyline. I really enjoyed Mr. Cosmo’s interpretation and never experienced the annoyance that can happen as an audio book goes on. Highly recommend!

    James Cosmo makes this great

    Voice and performance is everything in an audiobook and James Cosmo is fantastic. If only more classics had his narration!
