really liked it
bookshelves: college-reads
Read in April, 2012

I enjoyed Scott's writing style; he uses a lot of juxtaposition that injects some humor into the book. Be forewarned: the main character of the novel is not Rob Roy. Scott chose the title on the reccommendation of his publisher in order to boost sales. Also, there is a lot of Scot dialect that makes this a challenge. It was interesting the way Scott chose an Englishman as his main character and then sent him to Scotland in order to explore otherness. The financial intrigue of the novel is still relevant, and it has a nice romantic subplot. I liked it enough to plan on reading another Scott novel over the summer.
