Growing up as a child, Robin Hood stories and films always entertained and intrigued me. As the years pass the numbers of these continues to grow and makes the story more and more tired.

This, I am pleased to say, is not the case here. This has a very believable twist on the famous tale which is told so well I can but tip my hat to the author on a job well done. I loved this book, the story, the reinvented characters and the twist.

Easily recommended!

If you're after something that isn't a boring run-of-the-mill copy of the original tale then this is the book for you. I enjoyed the plot and thought it had a good pace and depth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of good reasons to read this book 4 Jun. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are a lot of good reasons to read this book.

**A neat premise. I have read a few takes on the Robin Hood story over the years, including one where Robin was female, but hadn't previously run across one where Robin Hood was made up by the Sheriff to cover his own misdoings.
**Attention to detail. The historical setting felt very real, from the physical setting to the way the culture and politics worked at the time.
**Good mix of action and humor within the overall story. I'm not sure if the author intended this, but I kept having a vision of the book as a movie and picturing it as having action scenes interspersed with almost slapstick comedy as the sheriff keeps digging himself deeper as he is trying to extricate himself from the situation.
**I was at college with the author. Okay, I guess that may not be a reason for you to read the book, but it is so cool to find that someone you actually know is now a writer.

The only thing that gave me pause was something that is probably due to my unique way of looking at things, and that was the pace of the writing. I could have used a lot more complex sentences, or at least longer ones. You know how they teach you in school that a period makes you stop? Well, I felt like I was being stopped when I wanted to keep going. If I had been editing this book, I probably would have replaced half of the periods with commas or semicolons or some other punctuation that doesn't make you keep starting and stopping all the time.

I know, that is probably a really strange thing to notice. But that's just the way I am - I react to patterns and details that most people don't seem to pay attention to, and they can become very distracting without a concerted effort to stop focusing on them.

All in all, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical fantasy and retellings of classic stories. It's a good addition to the Robin Hood legacy.
4.0 out of 5 stars Robin Hood as you have never known him before 12 July 2015
By E. I. HOOD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As one who has lived with a Hood for more than 50 years, I find myself interested in stories of the ubiquitous Robin. This book by Wilson Harp is not your run of the mill " Robin Hood and his Merry Men" even though they are all part of the story. The author takes a tack that I had not considered in the past. When I was done, I found his premise quite plausible.

I really liked the main character Robert, the Sheriff of Nottingham . Mr. Harp does not get bogged down in description and history and yet I could see the action quite easily in my "minds eye" How the townsmen created an outlaw out of whole cloth and caused the people around then to see the picture they painted is pure genius. It reminded me that we tend to all see what we want or expect to see.

My complaint, if it could be called that, are editing and grammar errors that showed up from time to time. The good news was that many of them were toward the end and I was so immersed in the story that I could gloss over them. But they were there.

I would recommend this to readers of all types. It is not deep but not froth either. There is not violence but people do get killed. There is not a lot of sex even though there is a love interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the first book that I enjoyed enough to write a review 13 Sept. 2014
By Jerry Bevens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the first book that I enjoyed enough to write a review. It was a free book of the day and I picked it up on a lark. As most have read, it takes an interesting tack on the Robin Hood legend that I thoroughly enjoyed. I wish more authors would break out of the formulaic story line and try something new as this author has done. The characters are interesting and watching the legend develop with a wholly new dynamic made it the best free book I've read. Great job, and I recommend it whole-heartedly (even if you have to pay $2.99!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice twist on an English favourite. 15 Jan. 2014
By Spadger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A very nice take on Robin Hood and very believable in fact. An easy quick cosy read and most enjoyable. Good plot and good characters with a subtle touch of romance. There were very very few editorial mistakes which I put down to the transfer to an E book. There were however a few words used that were not in the English language in the 1100's but much later in the 14, 15 and 1600's, one for example "perfidy". For keen historical fiction readers such things stick out like a sore thumb. I felt the price of $5.99 was little high for this Kindle edition but all in all a well written and exciting novel. I look forward to Wilson Harp's next book

4.0 out of 5 stars A new and different take on Robin Hood 28 May 2013
By Zombie Code Monkey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Just like his other novel, Bright Horizons, this new take on the Robin Hood story is well thought out and planned. Even some of the minor characters have interesting back stories. The various intrigues and dynamic relationships the protagonist maintains added much to the story. The biggest surprise was discovered early in the story, but in itself will keep you reading just to see how all the threads work themselves out
