    Paperback ↠ Ivanhoe PDF µ ivanhoe pdf, Ivanhoe eBookI believe Ivanhoe just misses being a great novel for two reasons First of all its characters although not without subtlety lack depth The exception to the rule is the “Jewess” Rebecca Secondly Scott’s style—at least as demonstrated here—suffers from a wordiness that continually dissipates the novel’s power It is nevertheless an impressive achievement original in conception rich in themes formidable in architecture and powerful in its effects

    Paperback ↠ Ivanhoe PDF µ ivanhoe pdf, Ivanhoe eBookI have decided to put down this book and not finish it 23 of the way in the reason being that while it was interesting to read about the old times of knights tournaments and great battles at castles it wasn't in any way interesting enough for me to keep on reading I feel like being this far in I've already gotten out of the story what I possibly could and I don't really care about how everything's going to end Funnily enough I was originally under the impression that this was going to be a children' story written in a somewhat easily accessible language Turned out I was completely wrong It's a classic story for adults written in a rather dense 1820s language Maybe my disappointment is part of the reason why I don't rea
