Robin Hood is a heroic outlaw in English folklore. A highly skilled archer and swordsman, he is known for "robbing from the rich and giving to the poor", assisted by a group of fellow outlaws known as his "Merry Men". Traditionally Robin Hood and his men are depicted wearing Lincoln green clothes. The origin of the legend is claimed by some to have stemmed from actual outlaws, or from ballads or tales of outlaws.

Reviews

THE GOOD OLD DAYS

(5 stars)

How nice to spend time with a noble champion. The sad ending reminds us all of our fragile mortality. The rest of the book seems to confirm that as we age, we remember only the good times, and this is how it should be. Barry Eads does a fine job as narrator.

A galant and chivalrous tail

(4 stars)

This book will take you back to youthful days of fantasy and fun. Robin is cocky but very noble and good hearted. His merry men are similarly inclined and fiercely loyal. It is a tale where the bad are good and the should be good are bad. The reader puts his heart into it, though some of his pronunciations are a bit off, it doesn't take away from this fun tail.

Ragnar Danneskjöld

(5 stars)

Nicely done. Though I have seen Robin Hood remade as several movies, they have never done the book justice. He is truly a legend describing the fate of good men under two Kings, Richard and John, sons of Elenor of Aquitaine. Though, now I hardly understand Rand's criticism; Ragnar Danneskjöld of Atlas Shrugged seems based off of our legendary hero.

good listen

(4 stars)

This was well read, clear and easy to understand. I do think a little more emotion in the exciting parts would be nice but all in all a good listen. Having seen many Robin Hood movies I always wanted to read the book, but never had time. I'm glad I listened to it, its better than the movies.

Nice time passer and fun time!

One of my absolute favorite readers and books. Wonderful cadence and timbre. I use these books to fall asleep and Robin Hood is my usual choice. I listened all through my pregnancy last year and now my baby sleeps to this too. <3

Very entertaining!

Very entertaining! Lots of good laughs. It will make you long to be with Robin Hood and his men in the freedom of the forest. A story well told.
