    1. Soy un lector asiduo y, ultimamente, bastantes de las obras que leo las compro a trav s de mi Kindle en Amaz n Mi inter s por Ivanhoe naci de un reciente viaje a Escocia Pues bien, la obra, un relato de aventuras caballerescas maravilloso, me ha encantado, pero la versi n comprada e en Anamaz n adolece de una traducci n al castellano infame, adem s de continuos errores ortogr ficos y tipofgr ficos.Penoso de verdad El libro lo recomiedo pero no en esta versi n de Amaz n


    2. Es la novela hist rica por excelencia estudiada por todos los te ricos de la literatura universal como Lukacs, Amado Alonso,Manzoni Su autor el ingl s Walter Scott


    3. Por la extensi n del libro he de admitir que me asustaba un poco su lectura pero la verdad es que la narraci n me ha parecido fascinante y me ha enganchado Para poner en tu lista de Cl sicos a leer.De nuevo me he encontrado con bastantes palabras arcaicas que han hecho dif cil su lectura, pero bueno, es normal cuando lees a los cl sicos en una lengua que no es tu lengua materna.Lo recomiendo a quien quiera disfrutar con una muy buena novela hist rica donde no faltan aventuras y romance.


    4. El libro esta en ingles y yo soy espa ol, asi es que no puedo leerlo Gracias por cambiarmelo por otro en espa ol


    5. Really In reading this oh so proper in word and deed story full of daring do, sword play, crashing lances,maidens in peril and so on Ivanhoe is really a minor role It takes some time to become familiar with the accents, obsolete words and the overall strange way that two words will never do when we have twenty that will say the same thing That being cast aside, think of this as a movie during the heyday of Warner Brothers just after color film was totally embraced by the film industry King Richa [...]


    6. A true classic, written in the early 1800 s, but relevant as long as men wish good to triumph over evil Scott s style takes breaking into, as it should considering the language s evolution over the last 200 years But once you have, it s as rich a tapestry of medieval life as one can find anywhere.This is the third time I ve read the book, and I ve probably seen the film a dozen times, and never seem to tire of it This time, however, has had a special reward Instead of having to guess or refer to [...]


    7. This was a challenge read for me but well worth the extra time spent on it The author has command of the English language and is quite the loquacious writer I felt it was not a simple story with a hero, but a time in history which incorporates the different peoples of England with church, nobles and the peasantry The author has been fastidious in his research for the time period in which the story takes place and in the end of the book has listed notes of his historic information and footnotes T [...]


    8. I enjoyed this book It was written just about 200 years ago and set the story of prejudice, bigotry, honor, and bravery into the 12th century with the likes of King Richard the Lionhearted, dastardly Prince John, brave Robin of Lochsley, and of course, the courageous and righteous Wilfrid Ivanhoe It is a rousing story, however it bogs down with the telling The conversations drone on and on with lots of mayhaps , perchance , methinks , and various Latin phrases, etc thrown in Yes, it is possibly [...]


    9. It s been a while since I ve read this, but I wanted my own copy so I could revisit it at my leisure It is a nice classic novel with the use of a lot of old English If you want to expand your vocabulary with old words that many don t use any I would highly recommend it If you are worried about what kind of content there is, it is clean with no language to really worry about.
