    Question Which is your favourite?

    Between all of Scott's writings (poems and all included), which is the best? I've only read Ivanhoe so far, so I can't judge.
    "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed." Romans 10:9-11

    Rob Roy is excellent. Scott's is a far better story than the legend used in the film with liam neeson
    There once was a scotsman named Drew
    Who put too much wine in his stew
    He felt a bit drunk
    And fell off his bunk
    And landed smack into his shoe

    Waverley is my favorite. It focuses mainly on Edward Waverley, and is more of a bildungsroman than many of Scott's other works. It just seems far more of a personal story.
    Like those who drift down the stream of a deep and smooth river,
    we are not aware of the progress we have made, until we fix our
    eye on the now distant point from which we have been drifted.
    ~Sir Walter Scott
