Still a good read
I last read this story many years ago as a student, and sent for this abridged copy as I had virtually forgotten the gist of the story. As a 19th century book telling the story (in the first person), of a couple of centuries earlier, it uses rather archaic language, and some West country dialect, but although basically a romance it has adventure, family feuds, civil war, and some violence all thrown into the mix. This version leaves out almost a third of the original, but is nevertheless a good rip-roaring read. I think this good condition copy was good value.
