Synopsis

Purchase one of 1st World Library's Classic Books and help support our free internet library of downloadable eBooks. Visit us online at www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - - No one but myself knows what I have suffered, nor what my books have gained, by your unsleeping watchfulness and admirable pertinacity. And now here is a volume that goes into the world and lacks your imprimatur: a strange thing in our joint lives; and the reason of it stranger still! I have watched with interest, with pain, and at length with amusement, your unavailing attempts to peruse The Black Arrow; and I think I should lack humour indeed, if I let the occasion slip and did not place your name in the fly-leaf of the only book of mine that you have never read--and never will read. That others may display more constancy is still my hope. The tale was written years ago for a particular audience and (I may say) in rivalry with a particular author; I think I should do well to name him, Mr. Alfred R. Phillips. It was not without its reward at the time. I could not, indeed, displace Mr.Phillips from his well-won priority; but in the eyes of readers who thought less than nothing of Treasure Island, The Black Arrow was supposed to mark a clear advance.

Those who read volumes and those who read story papers belong to different worlds. The verdict on Treasure Island was reversed in the other court; I wonder, will it be the same with its successor? -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

[The perfect companion for all history enthusiasts is the ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKER [ASIN:B004WWNHFM Roma Victrix Wein Becher]]

Like most people I was introduced to RLS through Treasure Island. But since those early days of pirate adventures I seem to have overlooked his other works. Thinking it was about time I read another of his novels I came across The Black Arrow in a local bookshop and thought I would give it a try.

The story itself is pretty sturdy, we follow the adventures of Richard Shelton as he seeks to find the true story of his father's death. Set during the war of the Roses, England is in turmoil with people changing allegiance to which ever rose is winning, subterfuge and battles are at every turn, throw in a bit of young, forbidden love and you have the ingredients of a 'boys own' adventure.

The main problem for me was that the story just seemed to drag, and coupled with characters speaking an archaic 'middle English' language it made for quite a painful read. It hasn't put me off reading more RLS but this one I'm afraid was just not up to my expectations.

Set against the backdrop of the Wars of the Roses, The Black Arrow is an intriguing look at the life of young Richard Shelton. Richard's life is shaken when he realizes that those he had thought to be his friends are really his enemies, and he is forced to make choices that will determine the course of his life. Although the characters are well-developed and the plot is fascinating, this book is not for the squeemish or lazy reader. The description is not only vivid, it is often gorey. The language is sometimes difficult and a dictionary might prove quite handy. But anyone looking for a well-written, action-packed classic should read this book.

The book, The Black Arrow, by Robert Louis Stevenson, did not grab my attention. Although it had some exciting events in the story, for the most part I was unable to appreciate them because i didn't know what was happening or what anything was about. The book had some confusing twists and turns which were hard to follow. So, I would not recommend this book to most people , because, to me, it was hard to follow and because of that, boring. this book is about a young man named Richard Shelton. He was born loyal to the House of Lancaster but found himself torn between his loyalty to his master and joining a band of outlaws called the Black Arrow, led by a dashing young man named Ellis Duckworth. Shelton goes through many adventures with many partners and friends. The problem is he doesn't know who he can trust. He has been betrayed and swindled, but he doesn't stop putting his faith in people who he thinks he can trust. One person he knows he can trust is Joanna Sedley. She was a lost love in his life which he later encountered. Throughout the book he is chasing, tracking and looking for her. There is certain types of people that would enjoy this book. If they can keep their attention and comprehend very well I think they might like this book very much. Because if you can follow the plot I'm sure it will be very exciting. So, if you fall into that category I would recommend this book to you. But if you are like me and you need a book that is full of adventure from the get go, and have some trouble following books, I would not recommend the Black Arrow.

While "Treasure Island" and "Kidnapped" are more famous and beloved by the adventurous boys and girls of america, I think this book is underrated. "The Black Arrow" combines the best of the adventure of "Treasure Island" and the swasbuckling intrigues of "Kidnapped". However, it adds the elements of a young and romantic pair of lovers. I would reccomend this book both for the adolescent who has progressed beyond Stevenson's more famous books as well as those of us who are still romantics at heart and miss the days of King Arthur or the Code of Chivalry. Enjoy!!

I'm usually rather picky with what I read, so I was almost struck when I found myself getting into this book. I heartily enjoyes it, not only that but it's a great tale of valor and chivalry. It's very underrated and undertaken. I say read it, however, younger readers may find themselves a little confused with dialogue, and often time Stevenson managed to leave out vital details.

It's York versus Lancaster, but it's from the viewpoint of a young man, fated to avenge his father's death and find his true love against the backdrop of the bloody 15th century War of the Roses. Stevenson does a bang-up-job of developing his characters, and the atmosphere is palpable. Try keeping this one out of your hands.

"The Black Arrow" is R. L. Stevenson at his best. With a smooth, proper style Stevenson creates complex, conflictive characters in an adventure full of emotion and thrills. For anyone who likes adventure, this novel is going to be one of his/her favorites because in this book Stevenson combines beauty with danger.
