Overview

Book One in the RKing Raven TrilogyS promises to be a blockbuster. Hood is a completely re-imagined story of the man known as Robin Hood Q told in a far more earthy, eerie, and elemental way than ever before by the master of British, Welsh, and Celtic historical fiction, Stephen Lawhead. The Robin Hood legend has popular appeal, as is evidenced by many theatrical and television releases of the story, and Lawhead brings the legend to life.

I agree with the other reviewer, the story was interesting, but the narration was jarring and irritating at times.

  • Book Rating: 3/5

Maybe I am too critical, but proper pronunciation is a pet peeve of mine... narrrator makes more than a few mistakes. Also I quite often didn't agree with his choice of voices. For example, the decision to make a Frankish sergeant sound like a 14-yr old boy. Story was intriguing though - i like the twist on the Robin Hood legend, and the author's notes at the end of the book explain how he arrived at the idea. Soo.. story 4, narration 2. I think I will read the other two books in the series rather than listening to them.
