Karl Louderback

Programmer for 25 years. Retired in 2002 when I lost my vision. I am not sightless but visually impaired. I am a poet, a novelist, and just plain enjoy writing. The loss of the ability to read trashed my life. I HATE audio books, they are SO slow. But, C'est la Vie! I listen to books now because I must.

    The epitome of the chivalric novel, Ivanhoe sweeps listeners into Medieval England and the lives of a memorable cast of characters. Ivanhoe, a trusted ally of Richard the Lion Hearted, returns from the Crusades to reclaim his inheritance. Rebecca, a beautiful Jewish woman, is defended by Ivanhoe against a charge of witchcraft - but it is Lady Rowena who is Ivanhoe's true love. The success of this novel lies with Scott's skillful blend of historic reality, chivalric romance, and high adventure.

    Matthew says: "Excellent writing, excellent narration!"
    "It's a classic, of course"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Anyone who has not read this should get around to it. I read it when I was 10 years old. Nearly 50 years later it is well worth re-reading.I had forgotten how many of the movies about Robin Hood had their basis in this story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I couldn't pick a favorite character no matter how I tried. Each seemed very alive to me.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Prebble – was your favorite?

    Simon Prebble was good at making the villains of the piece come alive. He has the voice for menace, I think.
