This was the best of this trilogy...which actually isn't saying much. But I enjoyed the world through the eyes of Will Scarlet as he waits to hang and tells his tale. I just wish the author had spent more time on Will Scarlet's present than the constant flashbacks.
This is a good beginning to a series. The main character is a little rough around the edges but the world that she lives in is interesting, in not fleshed out extremely well yet. There are a lot of things that are mentioned casually or hinted at without ever giving a full view of this alternate reality. But still, I will probably pick up the next in the series. By the end, I felt like the author was getting a rhythm going and the character was clearly on a path towards something.
I love Robin Hood tales but by the time the series got to Tuck, I just was sick of it. The characters are all one-dimensional and the story has a repetative feel to it. The characters just continue to do the same thing over and over and continue to be surprised when it fails only to have everything magically turn around at the very end. Huge chucks of time are skipped over and there is no character developement in sight. I really wanted to like this set of books but there was just nothing in the story that was interesting or original.
This was an interesting start to a series. This book was actually written in the middle of the series and is like the secret history of the main character. As such, I think that some of the world background got glossed over and there were some akward manuverings to make things fit. But it was still an interesting story and I am more than willing to actually listen to the rest of the series. It's kind of nice to see characters that have such twisted moral and no regret angst over them.
Yes. I liked a lot of the world but it lacked detail. Since this was a prolgue to his series though, written in the middle of the series, that might be understandable.
I thought she did a very good job giving the character's that teenage sarcastic ring without making you hate them.
The narrator does a wonderful job giving the characters emotions and inflections. I am so glad to see that she continues narrating this series.
A great beginning to a series. It has some interesting twists and turns, a clearly the beginning of a larger story. I finished the first one and immediately wanted to move on to the next.
Stephen Lawhead maybe, Adam Verner definitly
Verner does an excellent job making the characters interesting and handling the Welsh names.
Hood was an interesting take on a classic story. But it did tend to drag and make you wonder were it was going.
