I kept restarting it since i got it because the casting in my head was wrong and tbh i didn’t want to finish it. I’m always sad about finishing Robin Hood related things but
anyways for this read Kit Harington was Robin, Rupert Grint was Will, James Corden was Friar Tuck, Chris Pratt was Little John, Isaac Wright was Much, Emilia Clarke was Marian, Peter Capaldi was the Sheriff, i kept Richard Armitage as Gisbourne cause tbh he slayed that and made it his and no one else could be Gisbourne for me,
there were other people too, not that important but in this novel Much wasn’t there for a long time he only had like 2 scenes but he was still in the gang and he was really young, and Alan was only mentioned so i was sad, and no Nasir/Djaq/Mohammad
i was really happy that they stuck with the storyline where King Richard was friends with Robin and the gang cause in Robin Of Sherwood they made him evil which made no sense because Prince John was trying to freaking kill him and steal money and his throne so why would he be nice to the royals. It just didn’t work for me in ROS but they did it well in this. Also Marian was supposed to be older but i didn’t really want to imagine Robin going after MILFS or cougars so i was like #yikes
there were things that i DIDN’T like, for instance, in no incarnation did Robin ever kill Gisbourne because he gave up his violent ways when he left Jerusalem because he hated the holy wars and all the death but in this one he’s like killing left and right and i’m like “…. alright” Also the Sheriff was kind of a coward in this and he was like a “wrong place at the wrong time” character and that’s the weakest version of the Sheriff I’ve ever seen. He’s usually witty and constantly s***ting on Gisbourne which makes it great. I HATED this change and it was not in any of the other stories but Robin HATED the holy wars and he hated the english killing Jews and Muslims which is why he had a Muslim member in some version but here he talked so nasty about them and kind of just, idk, basically had a “yeah i killed them lol” attitude and it was such a turn off like i don’t know why they did that i almost didn’t want to read it.
They kept the archery contest in which is nice, and the raising of money for King Richard, which I guess is a must-have story line, and Marian marrying him, which was nice, and the story of the traitor although it usually changes in versions between Dickon and Alan-A-Dale but i don’t like to see Alan as a traitor so no thanks.
But what i loved is at the end the authors gave a brief history of all the real life men who claimed the titles Robin/Robert of the Hood and how the stories changed. They even mentioned Robin Of Sherwood and BBC Robin Hood and some of the movies which was really nice.
I kind of want to read another version of the story though. I wonder if there’s a full on graphic novel of the original novel. i know there are some webcomics but they are discontinued
anyways this was my sort of review of Outlaw
