    Classic tale of adventure and romance

    A largely-forgotten classic novel, set in the last decades of the 17th century, this is the story of an English village beset by a clan of villainous outlaws, and their eventual downfall at the hands of a simple farmer.

    John Ridd, a gentle giant whose honest nature and plodding ways have a habit of getting him into scrapes and back out again, chances to meet and fall in love with Lorna Doone, the lovely and sweet pet of the violent and lawless Doone clan. The many clashes between the Doones, and John and his friends and family, set against the rebellions and dangers of the era (not to mention the escapades of John's charming and roguish cousin/brother-in-law, the highwayman Tom Faggus) make for a truly adventure-packed romance. Many a comely lass might wish to catch good John Ridd's eye, but his heart belongs only to Lorna. But is she who she claims to be? Will she love him enough to forsake wealth and position? And can they ever escape the wrath of the vengeful Carver Doone?

    The casual reader may find this e-copy periodically difficult to read, as the occasional scanning error combines with the use of archaic vocabulary and Essex dialect in a one-two punch of "what is that word?", not to mention the way footnotes tend to suddenly crop up in the middle of pages or paragraphs, and that the style of writing is generally meandering (like most books written in the 1860s, it is long and wordy), but personally, I still found it less confusing in all its scanned, meandering glory than when I read the abridged paperback copy I've got, so... forewarned is forearmed, I guess? For those who like this sort of thing, this is the sort of thing they like, and for those who don't, well, by all means, don't read it, then.
