Summary

Ivanhoe is the perfect novel for any listener who loves an action-packed adventure based on the mythology and legends of Medieval times in England. Set in the 12th century, Ivanhoe is the story of a young man who joins up with Richard the Lion Hearted during a dark time where England is split between the Normans and the Saxons, pitting friends and family against each other through the conquering of land and the changing seats of the Royal Family.

After Fighting in the Holy Crusades, Ivanhoe returns to reclaim his love, stolen from him by his own father who intends to marry her into Saxon Royalty as the descendant of a long dead king. King Richard, with little interest in ruling the Kingdom of England, has allowed his brother, the despicable Prince John, to rule in his absence, sending the land into dismal times. After his capture, Richard escapes Austria, where he travels in disguise awaiting a rising to overtake Prince John and reclaim the throne.

The novel is a riveting adventure of jousting knights, damsels in distress, burning castles, escape and capture, and includes the famous Robin Hood and his Merry Men of bandits in an attempt to save the true King and Ivanhoe.

One of Walter Scott’s Best Works!

Hats off to the narrator, David McCallion, for doing a wonderful job on this read. His voice was a perfect fit for this story transporting you to Medieval England with his delightful British accent and character voices...

The story follows a young man during a time of turmoil in England, where he finds himself in the midst of the fight between the Normans and the Saxons, pitting all of England against each other. Filled with exciting adventure, English mythology, and many jousting knights, the narrative will draw you right into the adventure from the very beginning.

Ivanhoe by Walter Scott is truly a work of art that many can and will enjoy. Don't think twice about adding it to your collection!

Excellent Rendition of a Classic

Ivanhoe the tale needs no introduction, if you are expecting the movie you will not find it although for Hollywood the movie did stay close. The performance was excellent marred only, strange to say, the book itself. This was meant for reading not performing so sometimes the conversations get a little clunky. Well worth the time.

A medieval treat!

Ivanhoe is a marvelous audiobook experience. While some of the old jargon and slow initial plot work of the novel may deter some, stick with the book and prepare to be dazzled by the heroines, Rowena and most of all, Rebecca.

A classic tale

After reading the White Company, which I found very enjoyable, I also loved this rendition of the classic story of Ivanhoe. The narrator delivers the story in a soothing voice.
I recommend it without reservations.

A classic story of Mideival England

sometimes the flowery language made it difficult to follow the story, though the performance was clear.

Great Story & Narrator

My daughter was scheduled to read this for school and I wanted to read it too but was running short on time so I bought this Audible version. I felt the narrator was so exceptional and fitted to this book that I ended up letting her listen to it and follow along in her book rather than just reading it.
