    Medieval Mayhem

    Ivanhoe is a story about the events preceding and surrounding the return of King Richard the Lion-Hearted. The title character, Ivanhoe, is a Saxon knight who is loyal to the supposedly captive King Richard. Ivanhoe is returning from the Crusades in the Holy Land. This story follows his life from the time he returns to England until his final joust with his enemy, the Templar knight Brian de Bois-Guilbert. I think the author did a tremendous job of developing the characters. By the end of the story, I felt that I really understood the characters and their feelings. In the resolution scene, de Bois-Guilbert, the would-be villain, is developed to be pitiable for his undying love and care for Rebecca. Throughout the entire book, he seems like a cruel, evil, and vengeful person, but in the resolution, he makes it very clear that he is willing to die so that Rebecca can live. I love the way Scott waits until the very end to show the character¿s real personality. The mystery in this book is overwhelming. Many characters in this book use disguises to cover up who they really are. Sometimes the reader knows who the disguised character is and sometimes he doesn¿t. Also, the reader should expect this book to be full of romance. There are many lovers in this story. There is even a love triangle. If you don¿t like romance or mystery, you will not like this book.
