I read this one because I thought I should - it's one of English's earliest novels, it started a whole sub-genre of novels, and gosh darn it, it was sitting on the bookshelf.

Perhaps it's a bit over-written for modern tastes (that is, melodramatic and almost Gothic), but it's still a fun read, and it's interesting to see how real the Protestants vs. Catholics, and both of them versus those hateful infidels, was in the daily lives of people then.
