3.0 out of 5 stars A good novel, 26 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Lorna Doone (Wordsworth Classics) (Paperback)
Naturally I had heard of Lorna Doone before, especially as a child but had never read the full unabridged story until very recently. I finally wanted to know what all the fuss was about. I had also watched the recent TV series with Amelia Warner, who was an excellent Lorna. I felt she was actually a deeper more modern Lorna than the one represented in this novel. The Lorna of the novel does seem a rather distant figure at times, she fits into the beautiful stereotype of what was expected in Victorian times although she also possesses some feistiness which the actress brings out well. The character John plays an unusual hero being both the story teller and the main character. Still he does not degrade into any kind of artificial hero but rather maintains his reality to some degree.

All in all a good book but not a great novel, such as for example is The Count of Monte Cristo.
