Sir Walter Scott is an author with a tough style. Tough I said; but thoroughly enjoyable. His books are no paperback novels. He will take us to the medieval age in his slow moving train. I am a slow reader and I enjoy his writing word by word. I would recommend that the prequel 'The Monastery' should be read along with this book.
