Originally published in 1890, The Journal of Sir Walter Scott spans seven eventful years of the author’s life where he attempts to reclaim his good standing. It’s a revealing look at the highs and lows of one of the greatest novelists of all-time. The Journal of Sir Walter Scott starts in 1825 when the author is 54 years old. It recounts a seven-year stretch of financial strain caused by failed business ventures and defaulted loans. Scott details his struggle to maintain his dignity, while losing his status and possessions. He recounts personal traumas linked to the death of his wife in 1826, as well as his own declining health. It is a riveting exploration of the author’s final years. The Journal of Sir Walter Scott is considered a masterpiece of candid writing. Scott bares his soul as he navigates several unexpected obstacles. In the midst of his anguish, he maintains a sincerity that makes for a refreshing and reflexive read. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Journal of Sir Walter Scott is both modern and readable.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    Birgitta Johansson

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
