Publisher's Summary

In 13th-century England, the legendary figure known by generations as Robin Hood leads an uprising that will forever alter the balance of world power and will make one man of humble beginnings an eternal symbol of freedom for his people.

An expert archer once interested only in self-preservation, Robin now serves in King Richard's army. Upon Richard's death, Robin travels to Nottingham, a town suffering from a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation. There he falls for the spirited widow Lady Marion, who is skeptical of the motivations of this mysterious crusader from the forest.

Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marion and to save the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by its appetite for life. Together, they begin preying on the indulgent upper class to correct the injustices of the sheriff. Now a major motion picture starring Oscar -winner Russell Crowe.

Nicely done, great plot and lessons to be learned

This is a novelization of the movie released in 2010.

The author did a good job of describing what happened in the movie, adding in the thoughts and emotions of the characters so as to turn a good movie into a good book.

The production is solid and the narrator is adequate. (Having just listened to William Dufris' incredible rendition of The Maltese Falcon, any narrator would have a hard time bearing up under comparison. ;-)

This take on the classic tale of Robin Hood carries a great message for today: liberty is worth the risk.

I enjoyed this audiobook and guess that you will, too. Check it out. =)

Robin Sachs is a great narrator

Robin Sachs' narration is the reason to buy this audible book. His characterization is very good and he brings the different characters alive. As this book is the story of a film, Robin Sachs narrates the frequent fight scenes well, lending drama to the reading. I enjoy his voice.

Like describing a movie to a blind person

I should have read the "book" description more carefully. This wasn't really a book, but a description of a movie, and probably not a very good movie. The narrator was wonderful, but the entire story sounded like someone telling me what was taking place on the screen. In addition, characters didn't behave as characters in that time period more likely would. (Marion wielding a sword in battle, Robin professing his love after only a few days, etc.)

A surprise, a pleasant surprise.

I was skeptical about a novelization of a film, but Robin Sachs did an excellent job with the narration and it turned out to be a great listen in the end. A shame that Robin Sachs passed away, I would have enjoyed more of his work had he lived on and continued to narrate.

Nonetheless, as a piece done by our beloved narrator it is a treat to listen to, and you shan't be disappointed.

possibly the worst 'Robin Hood' ever

Horrible story. Not really Robin Hood and not remotely historically accurate. No one would buy a fantasy book like this without the name Robin Hood.

Great book!

Loved the story but wasn't too thrilled about the narrator. He sound like a robot at times and l had to force myself to stay focused.

It keep me interested all along

Firstly I think the narrator was very good, and I would seek him out in the future. I picked this book as it was a two books for one price, and I am glad I did. It is about the Robin Hood legend before he becomes Robin Hood. As it is a legend one has to consider the story lightly. But if your a fan of this time period and of Robin Hood then I think this is a very good pick
