    One thought on “Black Fox of Lorne”

    1. I thought it was a pretty good book The only historical fallacy I found was that Neptune was not a sea god of the Norse people he was Roman Oh, well.Anyway, this book is about a group of Norse Vikings who wished to settle with some Danish cousins somewhere in England in the mid 900 s AD They get caught in a bad storm in the North Sea, and they get shipwrecked The story is mostly of two bothers, twins, one of which gets captured by a bad guy.The twins keep switching who is the captured one, and t [...]

    2. 3.5 stars I would rate this higher, but it took me forever to read victim of a reading slump It s not the book s fault I also kept comparing it to Rosemary Sutcliff s books Unfair, I know But still This book is well written and the characters are good It reminds me slightly of Robin Hood, and slightly of The Shining Company I liked best that it is extremely accurate historically, complete with details in Scottish and Norwegian life It depicts well the shift of Europe from the old gods to Christi [...]

    3. fun book A child liking adventure would enjoy this story It s a bit old fashioned in the writing, so it would have to be a dedicated or strong reader There is alot of description about camping and living off the land, life in a medieval, Scottish castle, etc There is also a bit of Christianity in it So, if you are looking for a Christian novel or one that discusses Christian ideas and morality, this is a good one Much discussion about vengeance vs forgiveness An interesting topic for any age

    4. This has been a favorite since I was in about 5th grade I love it for the history, the Scotland, the twins Ian Jan and Brus, the writing which has just the right touch of archaic names and phrases to make one feel like one is in the story , the drawings, and every other quality I could enumerate.

    5. The story is quite exciting, but I wish I had been able to find this on audio, because the language of the Middle Ages and the unfamiliar Scottish and Norse terms were a bit of a struggle.

    6. This mid 1950s book is for my Newbery collection, and I would give it 3.5 stars if we could I have vague memories of reading it as a youngster and loving it I can see why I would have, fitting right in with my Nancy Drew Hardy Boys and time travel era Although, don t take that to indicate mystery and or time travel here this is a historical adventure drama about young Viking teens in northern Scotland circa 950AD, involving tribal treachery I enjoyed the read now as an adult It offers a non bori [...]

    7. This is a fabulous look at Scottish history, even if it s fiction I loved reading it when I was a kid, and I ve recently reread it, and still enjoyed it Twin Brothers, vikings by birth, end up in 10th century Scotland, and use their wits to survive and to find their mother, and their Father s murderer.

    8. A wonderful and intriguing historical adventure This was one of my favorite books as a kid and it holds up well today m There are a few heavy handed overly Christian motifs but overall the book moves at a fast pace A really nice read

    9. two young boys have a rather wild adventure lots of ups and downs,and I might add that they are IDENTICAL twins.
