The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.5 stars; 204 reviews)

Robin Hood is the archetypal English folk hero; a courteous, pious and swashbuckling outlaw of the mediæval era who, in modern versions of the legend, is famous for robbing the rich to feed the poor and fighting against injustice and tyranny. He operates with his "seven score" (140 strong) group of fellow outlawed yeomen – named the Merry Men. He and his band are usually associated with Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire.

The Victorian era generated its own distinct versions of Robin Hood. The traditional tales were often adapted for children, most notably in Howard Pyle's Merry Adventures of Robin Hood. These versions firmly stamp Robin as a staunch philanthropist, a man who takes from the rich to give to the poor.(Summary from Wikipedia)

Robin Hood

I really enjoyed this book - read it aloud to my children many times - was nice to hear someone else read it aloud. Multiple readers some with differeing styles - adds to the interest and fun.

very good book

(3 stars)

this is a classic and starts off being read by a wonderfulale reader. when chapter three begins a woman takes over who is a terrible reader. Unfortunately she was too monotone and had such a choppy reading style I could not even finish listening to this book.

(5 stars)

Well um..... I'm really shocked at this story. It's nothing like the children books . Well some of it is. It's interesting and sad at the same time. My childhood is kind of ruined lol. This book kind of annoyed me though. So much singing 🤣. This must be a books version of a musical lol 🤣. I like musicals just not in books. The readers were good, but some had very bad microphones. Intresting story was good to finally know the original story.
