An historical novel as gripping as Scott's Ivanhoe. Details (if other): Cancel. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Rob Roy is a historical novel by Walter Scott. It is narrated by Frank Osbaldistone, the son of an English merchant who travels first to the North of England, and subsequently to the Scottish Highlands to collect a debt stolen from his father. On the way he encounters the larger-than-life title character of Rob Roy MacGregor. Though Rob Roy is not the lead character (in fact the narrative does not move to Scotland until half way through the book) his personality and actions are key to the development of the novel.

Created by. Walter Scott (3 books).

Title: Rob Roy By: Sir Walter Scott Format: Paperback Vendor: Penguin Random House Publication Date: 1995. Dimensions: . 3 X . 0 X . 5 (inches) ISBN: 0140435549 ISBN-13: 9780140435542 Stock No: WW0435549. Publisher's Description. ▲. When young Francis Osbaldistone discovers that his vicious and scheming cousin Rashleigh has designs both on his father's business and his beloved Diana Vernon, he turns in desperation to Rob Roy for help.

Great story, well narrated by Robbie Coltrane (who near the end of his career played Hagrid in the Harry Potter films). We get to enjoy Robbie Coltrane's great voice acting, including the accents and dialects of the lowland Scots, highland Scots, and English characters. The only downside is that Penguin cheaped out by abridging the original novel down to just two cassettes. Alas. Still, after listening to Coltrane's rendition, re-reading the novel in its entirety is a joy because your mind's ear hears Coltrane's voice in the pages. I borrowed this from my local library back in the 90's when it first came out. I searched for it on a lark. It is so lucky that there are still copies floating around on Amazon!!

Sir Walter is a wordy pompous ass, but I’ve always loved listening to pompous asses so I can recommend this for like minds who don’t mind struggling through pages of all but illegible and certainly unpronounceable Scottish vernacular. It’s a bonny adventure with fun characters and a romantic sub-plot suitable to it’s period. James Fenimore Cooper kept coming to mind and one might be forgiven for comparing Rob MacGregor Roy to Natty Bumpo, both righteous supermen with great moral strength and integrity. Good role models but heavy reading for most modern teenagers who might most benefit from Sir Walter’s views of duty, honor and adventure.
Can’t vouch for the historical accuracy, but close enough to get a feel for the era.

I picked up "Rob Roy" after first finishing Sir Walter Scott's immortal novel, "Ivanhoe". The latter was perhaps the most entertaining and inspiring novel I've ever read. "Rob Roy" did not quite measure up to "Ivanhoe", in my view. But it is a splendid novel, nonetheless.

The plot concerns a young heir to a huge London business fortune, Francis Osbaldistone, becoming caught up in the romance and intrigue of the Jacobite uprising of 1715 in Northern England and Scotland. Francis shows little joy for the idea that he should inherit his father's prosperous business and career. His father, in disappointment, dispatches him to the North, with word to his Uncle that the first cousin, Rashleigh, should be considered the replacement for Francis in the proffered business career. There, at the Uncle's estate, Francis meets for the first time both his cousins, including this Rashleigh, and the enigmatic Diane Vernon, a beautiful, mysterious, athletic, and profoundly capable young women. Along the way, he encounters the strong, silent Mr. Campbell, who turns out to be the title character, Rob Roy. With this, we see one of Sir Walter Scott's evidently preferred approaches: he introduces his hero in disguise. This he did in "Ivanhoe" both with the title character and with Richard, the Lion-heart.

But the character of perhaps even more interest than Rob Roy is this Diane Vernon. As another reviewer has opined, she emerges as perhaps one of the most interesting female characters in English literature. In this, she resembles strongly Scott's rendering of the Jewish damsel, Rebecca of York, in "Ivanhoe". Like Rebecca, Diane is both achingly beautiful and wonderfully spirited. Also like Rebecca, she is a proud member of a despised minority group: Rebecca being a Jew and Diane being a Catholic, in an England that was then staunchley, if only officially, anti-Catholic.

Diane's faith, of course, also provides something of a backdrop for the political intrigue of the novel. The Jacobite uprising was an attempt to return James II, the last Catholic King of England, to the throne. And we see in Scott's beautiful and detailed description of England and Scotland in this period both the profound prejudice under which Catholics then labored in these lands and the steadfast devotion to their faith that these folks evidently lived, albeit somewhat on the sly.

The book is excellent and hugely entertaining. It is not in any way to be confused with the ridiculous and insulting Hollywood movie made not long ago with Liam Neeson in the title role. In fact, the only thing that the book and movie share is the title. Scott's novel, here reviewed, is a rousing and wonderful tale of high adventure, intrigue, and beautiful, though subtley sweet, romance. We recommend it highly. Enjoy!

Roy Roy was published to wide sales in 1817. Sir Walter Scott (117-1832)had already won fame through his novel "Waverly" amd ballad poems such as "The Lady and The Lake" and "Marmion." Scott turned to fiction when his poetry took a backseat to the new works being produced by such Romantics as Lord Byron and Shelly.
Roy Roy is a 500 page novel set in the 1715 time when the young Stuart Pretender ivaded England in a futile attempt to cast aside Hanoverian dynatsy monarch George I restoring Catholic rule to Great Britain. Scotalnd and England had been united as Great Britain in 1707 but hostilities on both sides of the Tweed were still manifest.
The story deals with young Francis Olbaldistone scion of a wealthy merchant. Frank finds this work dull and sest northward for adventure and fortune. He stays at the oome of his Catholic uncle meeting several dissolute, hunting and boozing cousins. While at the estate he falls in love with the Roman Catholic Diana Vernon.
The book deals with Francis becoming aquainted with Rob Roy McGregor, his formidable wife Margaret and their family who engage in cattle rustling and harassing the Protestant and Lowland Scotch. The intricate plot features a greedy and evil cousin Lashleigh who seeks to trick Frank's father out of his business money and win Diana as a lover. The book is resolved when Lasheligh is defeated and Diana weds Frank. Rob Roy does not appear until page 247 halfway though the novel. Frank and Diane are stick figures.Comic characters such as Andrew Fairchild provide humor. Rob Roy is based on thge real life exploits of a Scottish historical figure.
Rob Roy has realtively little action, contains hard to understand Scottish dialect and is slow moving in resolving the complicated plot. Parts of the story read like a Scottish tour guide.
The book is memorable for Scott's introduction of the proud Highland culture to their neighbors to the south and in interesting male readers in adventure stories. Scott is the pioneer of the historical novel for which he will always hold a place in literary history.
This Penguin Edition has no footnotes at the back of the volume or an introduction by a modern literary scholar. It must have been published prior to Penguin's fine new series of Scott reprints based on the distinguished Edinburgh Scholary Edition. Also, the volume lacks a chronology of Scott's career.
Sir Walter Scott is a tough go for modern eyes but is worth the read for his insight into Scottish life and ability to weave a story.

As it is not clear from the product description, this is a highly abridged, large-text adaptation of this book, written at what appears to be a third grade level.
