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.

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!
