Read in June, 2011

The first half of the book drags a little bit. Okay, it drags a lot in places. But you can definitely see where that episodic style of literature that was to become so popular in the Victorian Age originated. Scott's prose is meaty...sometimes rambling. And the Scottish dialects are at times hard to decipher. But his characters are vibrant, and the plot is interesting (in places). A word of warning: if you've seen the Liam Neeson version of the tale on the big screen, don't expect the novel to be ANYTHING like it. The characters, the plot, everything was changed in the movie.
