We have all read about, or seen a movie about Robin Hood and his merry band. This book is about Robin Hood but with a twist. I expected this story to parrot what I have already come to think about as the Robin Hood saga. To a small degree, the author fulfilled that expectation. All the characters you are familiar with are a part of the story. The author takes a clever approach to the title character in terms of who he is, why he does what he does, how he goes about it, and how he maintains his freedom. I really give this title a rating of 4.5 stars. The only reason I reduced the rating was because the characters were not as well developed as I would have liked.
