Book Description

In the last city on Earth, far below the radioactive wasteland, the survivors of the war have constructed a bottomless urban cityscape filled with layers of skyscrapers and mazes of overlapping roadways. Automaton servants fulfill the desires of every citizen. They clean their homes, police their streets, and share their beds. Bio-engineered organs replace the failures of human nature, keeping people alive indefinitely. Genetically modified pets entertain their children. Food is manufactured to the highest quality imaginable. Every wish is granted.

As long as they can afford it.

Those unable to pay the exorbitant prices set by the rich, die in the streets. Their lack of technology disconnects them. Their lack of medical care weakens them. Their lack of food starves them. And when they turn to crime in order to survive, they're sentenced to death.

Hope no longer exists.

But against seemingly impossible odds, an unlikely hero will stand up against an establishment built upon suffering and corrupted by wealth. He will remind the poor, the weak, and the destitute that they should never give up and they should never surrender, because in the city of Nottingham, the war is just beginning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different 10 April 2014
By julia
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We all know the story of Robin Hood. The start, the middle and the end. This story however, combines an old myth into a sci-fi setting and for me it worked fairly well. I enjoyed the new spin but found the repeated fights with autobots a tad repetitive. As the story panned out, it was easy to draw comparisons with the world we live in today. The rich who have everything against those who have nothing & the story at times left me asking if such events may even happen along similar lines in the future. I'd say if you like sci-fi, give this book a go. With elements of past, present & future, love, danger, loss & sacrifice it binds together for a decent read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept 6 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bough this because the title caught my eye (my home town). It was an easy read which as a concept was interesting - the use of an old legend and characters in a post-apocolyptic setting.

5.0 out of 5 stars good read 10 Dec. 2013
By Andy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got this book just to see how, the author would rewrite a classical legend. He managed to keep the just of the story and adapt it well into a futuristic setting. The inter twining of the characters. How they interacted with the setting. Was very well done. His concepts fitted well with what has been written before. In the whole it was a great read and gripping. Well worth the stars given.

3.0 out of 5 stars Notting-sham 4 Jan. 2014
By Kodiak
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm giving this three stars, because I didn't really like it but as the 3 star guide says "It's OK".

It's basically a dystopian future retelling of Robin Hood, except half the characters are automatons of a sort.

It's written well, and has no obvious spelling mistakes, I just didn't find it much fun

4.0 out of 5 stars R.O.B.I.N. 17 Nov. 2013

This was a really great read, the way si-fi should be. A great modernization of an old favorite. Books like this inspire people to make time to lose themselves in someone else's fantasy.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY entertaining 5 Nov. 2013

A way far fetched but very entertaining story. I like them that way. A very futuristic spin on an old school tale. This one was well worth my time to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A futuristic retelling of Robin Hood 11 May 2014
By amazon reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this futuristic retelling of Robin Hood. It was highly imaginative and yet true to the original fable.
I caution that there are some adult themes in this retelling that may offend some readers.
I recommend this story to adult readers of folklore and modern fables.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Entertaining 21 April 2014
By kora87 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the third book I have read by Mr. Knuth and I have loved them all so far. Nottingham is a sci-fi/futuristic Robin Hood story that involves robots and bioengineering. It was interesting to see how some of the original characters are reimagined in this creative tale. If you love the original Robin Hood and you like sci-fi, you will enjoy this.
