I'm good that this was Scott's personal favourite, perhaps he saw much of Oldbuck in himself.
That's interesting. What notable cultural phenomenon linger on over there as relics of the past?
Thanks, I can all too readily imagine the first, but surprised at the second.
My first impression was that of wondering how Scott was going to pull everything together in the last couple of chapters,which he did of course, leaving no loose ends.
I would have liked though to have had more from Lovel before he disappeared suddenly, and having the mendicant take the central role of the tale. Indeed if you were to ask who was the protagonist of this story, you could argue for both of those just mentioned and the Antiquary himself.
I enjoyed changing my opinion of Capt McIntyre as the novel progressed and even liked him in the end.
So, yes, an enjoyable tale, but another 300 pages would have better satisfied my appetite for learning more of the characters.
