Publisher's Summary

History speaks of a folk hero hundreds of years ago who fought against corrupt kings and saw the good in everyday people.

Legends say that this might not have been just one man, but many heroes to take up the name and mantle of Robin Hood throughout the ages.

The legend has been reborn in the American apocalypse.

Rob 'Hood' Huntington was an easygoing 20-something kid who loved house parties with good friends and bad jokes. He never thought about a life of survival.

Then in one day everything he knew was gone.

Lucky for him, he learned quickly he is a truly gifted marksman. Learning to live with pulling the trigger is something else entirely.

Two years have passed since the fall of civilization. Hidden away in the mid-Atlantic countryside rests the small town of Clearwater, where Hood, his sister Taylor, and an ex-cop by the name of Whiskey lead a group of survivors. Raging through the remnants of the northeast, two kings, the Kaiser and the Crusader, fight a bloody war for control of the land.

Hood, Whiskey, and the Clearwater crew survive by stealing just enough from the Kaiser to keep the town going. But they cannot stay hidden away forever.

If you loved The Last of Us, I Am Legend, or The Road, you won't want to miss Hood!

    Story
    "Dystopian dark"
    What did you love best about Hood?

    The pace was consistent and flowed well. The situations described in detail.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are well defined, even when they surprised me. We got into their heads.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Jameson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not. This was very well done.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Staying alive and out of evil's way


    Any additional comments?

    In a dystopian world you expect dark and disturbing. This small band of survivors are trying to stay alive and hide from the evil left in the world. When Hood finds himself on his own, the world gets darker and survival even less probable.

    The characters are well defined, even when they surprised me. We got into their heads.

    "Mike Sims"

    An excellent audiobook!! It twist through the storyline full of surprises.
    Character development was good, I wish these authors spent more time telling what the characters looked like but they don't.
    Narration was excellent the narrator was easy to listen too, good voice with just the right inflection in his voice.

    Story
    "Great postapocalyptic audiobook!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hood to be better than the print version?

    I'm a big fan of the print version of Hood, so it's hard not to give the audiobook version the same rating. If you like great postapoc fiction with characters you can empathize with and not just a bunch of fluff, I highly recommend it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Whiskey, duh!

    Why? Cuz he's me.


    What does Michael Jameson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A voice to Hood. It was nice to have a narrator who sounds pretty much exactly how I imaged Hood to sound.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend it!

    "Thou shalt not take the Lords name in vain."

    could not get through the first chapter. Every other word was a G D. Not for me.
