The Black Arrow – Robert Louis Stevenson

The Black ArrowThe Black Arrow by Robert Louis Stevenson
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

It took me three attempts to get done. After the first third it got interesting, even if the plotting was a bit convenient and didn’t have have so many twists and turns. My favorite line was this:

“And I,” said Dick, “that never cared a straw for any manner of woman until now, I took to you when I thought ye were a boy. I had a pity to you and don’t know why. When I would have belted you, the hand failed me. But when ye owned ye were a maid, Jack -for still I will call you Jack- I made sure ye were the maid for me. (…)”

Well, Dick, I can tell you why you might have fallen for Jack…

Anyway. The language, obviously, also needed some getting used to. But it was okay, in the end.
