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.

My Fave

(5 stars)

my favorite part must be when Marianne comes to the greenwood dressed as a squire, and when it says that the woods seemed tinged with red. Overall a great book and my favorite find.

fantastic reader & worth a listen

(5 stars)

this reader did a fantastic job. very clear and professional. i have seen several variations of this story, done in movie form, and if you compiled them together it might cover all the events of the book - though no movie really covered the fact that there were TWO kings discussed over robins lifetime. that confused me at first until king richard was brought in to the book after the half way point. i wasnt going to read this because i knew the story so well, but i am glad i decided to listen. well worth the read!

Robin Hood

(5 stars)

A unique and fun story telling stile. There is a reason Robin Hood became a famous classic tail. A funny, playful, and fun filled book to amuse the young and the old.

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.

Brings back happy memories

(5 stars)

The text was read clearly with great pace. I love that the text read was not the modernized version and greatly appreciate all the subtle nuances put into the reading.

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.

(5 stars)
