این کتاب را سال ها پیش خوانده بودم و امروز یادم اومد که به قفسه گوودریدس اضافش کنم
آنموقع در موردش ریویویی هم نوشته بودم
اما بدون ویرایش کردن در اینجا می آورم و به افکار افشار گذشته جسارتی نمیکنم
با اینکه بعضی حرفاش بنظرِ افشار فعلی کاملا بی اساس اند

اولين بار كارتونش بود كه مرا با رابين هود آشنا ساخت و بعد فيلمش
منظور افشار فیلم تقریبا جدید آن نیست که راسل کرو نقش رابین هود را بازی کرده
وقتي كتابش را پيدا كردم كلي تعجب كردم چون نويسنده اش الكساندر دوما بود و اين سوال برايم پيش آمد كه آی

Wow, this was written in 1863 and it's still a fresh take on the Robin Hood legend! You'll find Dumas' standard and excellent rakish heroes, furious villains, plot twists, secrets, improbable coincidences, and enough love triangles to make an icosahedron. I especially enjoyed how Robin and the other characters we all know and love (Marian, Little John, Friar Tuck, Alan-a-Dale, Will Scarlet, Guy, and Nottingham) have been fitted with unique backgrounds and connections. Dumas reveals them piece by ...more

I found this old out of print Dumas version of Robin Hood at the Central Brooklyn library. It was so old I often had to be careful not to damage the pages while I was turning them. It's the first of a two part series that he wrote in 1872, this version was published in 1920. It's apparently one of his least recognized books because it took some research to find out anything about it; it's not listed on biographical websites.
The story is another tale of that worthy forester called Robin Hood, I

Finalmente recuperato, dopo anni di "Un giorno dovrò leggerlo".
Sinceramente mi aspettavo qualcosa di diverso; a me ha dato proprio l'impressione del classico "romanzo per ragazzi". Non sto dicendo che sia brutto, sia ben chiaro, ma non credevo di leggere un Dumas così leggero :).
Detto ciò, ho trovato il libro, appunto, leggero e scorrevole, poco impegnativo. Mi ha divertita abbastanza ed è stato di intrattenimento, ma non ci si aspetti chissà quale alta letteratura. I personaggi non hanno una

Le intrepide e celebri avventure del più famoso arciere inglese... Davvero una ventata di aria fresca, mai stancanti.
Maria Grazia
Libro "per ragazzi" dal valore più storico che letterario, sicuramente non una delle migliori opere di Doumas padre, che ha preso le leggende sassoni sul ladro gentiluomo e le ha rimasticate in salsa da operetta. Nessun vero spessore dei personaggi, tranne forse nell'ultima parte, un clima ridanciano e stupidotto, irrealmente idilliaco.
Senza contare i numerosissimi svarioni per cui l'autore richiama cose che dice di averci detto prima, e invece non l'ha mai fatto.
Direi che l'unica cosa per cui r

This book taught me about the true story behind the folklore hero widely known to the world as Robin Hood.... The true story of this hero has nothing to do with the movies about him... A must-read for people of all ages!

Que c'est bavard ! Certains passages auraient pu être réduits voire supprimer sans perdre de la qualité du roman (je ne sais pas si ce livre a été publié en feuilleton mais ça expliquerait les longueurs). De plus la première partie du roman ressemble beaucoup à un vaudeville avec des motivations pas très claires et des situations plus comiques (voire lourdes) que dramatiques. Il n'en reste pas moins une aventure qui se dévore et des personnages qui petit à petit émergent et remplissent les atten ...more

Bel libro per ragazzi, che regalerei volentieri a qualcuno che si stia avvicinando alla lettura... ma mi aspettavo qualcosa di diverso. Strutturato pi come una serie di racconti legati tra loro che non come un romanzo vero e proprio, una lettura piuttosto leggera... i personaggi sono poco approfonditi, la storia piuttosto piatta per la maggior parte del tempo. Si fa leggere, non dico di no, ma mi aspettavo qualcosa di pi "serio". Come stato detto in un altro commento, forse la trasposizione c ...more

When I was in year three I had a wonderful teacher who would bring a book from home and read a few chapters of it to us as a treat everyday. Robin Hood was one of these books, after he read it to us, he put it on our tiny bookcase in the room for anyone to read. I devoured it about four times over after he had finished it for the class. Brilliant book.

Na příběh Robina Hooda jsem se těšila, ale bohužel jsem propásla tu správnou dobu. Měla jsem si ho přečíst před deseti či patnácti lety. Dneska už nedokážu vidět svět Robina Hooda tak černobíle jak bych toho byla schopna tehdy a jak se mi autor snaží v knize předkládat. Ano, stokrát opakuje, jak šlechetný je zbojník Robin a jak je správné okrást kohokoli, kdo má peníze, protože kdo je má, musí být pěkný darebák. Jenomže když podobné zjednodušení světa nesdílíte, začnete mít pocit, že hlavní hrdi ...more

I LOVED Robin Hood and everything I could find about his legend when I was a child. Although this book was made into several movies (and most notably was the origin material for Errol Flynn's Robin Hood,) it does stray pretty far from the original material concerning Hood's legend.

This book is written Alexandre Dumas this book has a lot of adventure and drama. My favorite part was when he tried to show the guy that he was a good archer and he hit the dear dead center in the target and the guy was surprised this book is GREAT!!!.

I knew the folklore of Robin Hood, but Dumas created a new character in itself; A Robin Hood that was darker, meaner and more fascinating than even before. Loved it; Read it at the risk of doing miserably in my Vivas but was totally worth it.

Welcome back to Sherwood Forest...

The delights of Dumas’ novels are well known. Less known today are his tales of Robin Hood. With great pleasure, we present these two old works to a new reading public: electronic book readers. "Prince of Thieves" and "Robin Hood the Outlaw" have virtually disappeared from bookshelves; they are now virtual books, accessible to the world from the Reginetta Press.

In "Prince of Thieves," Alexandre Dumas tells his own unique version of Robin Hood's origins and upbri

Molto carino, appassionante e divertente. Non c'è un punto morto, solo pura avventura. Oltretutto è molto scorrevole, il che non guasta in un'opera di metà 800.
Ammetto di essermi talvolta persa nei passaggi tra una scena e l'altra che sono molto repentini, ma nell'insieme l'ho divorato.
I personaggi femminili sono un po' caricaturali, visto il numero di volte in cui svengono senza ritegno, ma alla fin fine tutto il racconto è un po' caricaturale, perciò nulla di cui lamentarsi. D'altra parte "c

Leggendo la prima parte del romanzo ho pensato che fosse un testo per un target giovane. Gli allegri compagni di Robin Hood, infatti, non sono violenti ma rapinano solo i Normanni e i religiosi senza ricorrere alla violenza. La seconda parte, invece, con Robin adulto e vedovo, sotto la repressione di Giovanni senza Terra, gli allegri compagni diventano dei veri e propri guerrieri per la libertà. Nell'insieme è un romanzo piacevole, se non fosse per i refusi e per l'uso del lei nei dialoghi tra c ...more

I liked it, but only because some parts were about Robin Hood. A great portion seemed to be about Maid Marian and the Merrie Maidens of Sherwood Forest. Not really but there was an awful lot of romance. The first five chapters are almost all about their romantic exploits. Another chapter focuses primarily on Will trying to get all of his brothers married at once. And yet all of that romance is astoundingly shallow. The girl says "yes", they are "happily married" and then years later brief mentio ...more

Ammetto di essere arrivata alla fine con grossissime perplessità.
Dumas, capisco che questo libro è postumo, ma tu hai scritto Il Conte di Montecristo. Lo so che sai fare di meglio.

Ci sono storie che rimangono impresse per il modo in cui sono scritte: mi viene in mente Anna Karenina, che se non fosse per come scrive Tolstoj sarebbe "solo" la storia di una donna che si stanca del marito e si prende un amante.

E ci sono storie che restano impresse per la loro potenza intrinseca, a prescindere da com

L’histoire est totalement différente de ce que j’avais vue et lue antérieurement donc ce fut une surprise qui m’a un peu dérouté. Pourquoi ? Parce qu’on y raconte plutôt l’histoire de Robin avant qu’il devienne ce que nous connaissons de lui, c’est-à-dire le “prince des voleurs”. Néanmoins, j’ai mieux compris la légende : ses origines et les raisons de ce surnom donnent plus de sens à l’histoire.

Cependant, il ne s’agit pas du meilleur roman de l’auteur à mon avis. En faite, c’est en fouillant su

Such an amazing classic book, and I'm sorry I didn't read it before. It's very well written, I love how Alexandre Dumas portrayed women, he really cherished and appreciated them, and so did all of his characters.

Robin Hood has been given a new identity in Dumas' novel, and he was kind, brave, fearless, and a very good role model to everyone (except for the King), and I loved his every moment, from early childhood til the end.

This opened my curiosity towards other novels written by Dumas, so I ca

Finito il primo libro del nuovo anno...e non potevo cominciare meglio!
E' vero, il Robin Hood del libro è diverso da quello della leggenda, per molti versi, però...non c'è niente da fare, Dumas riesce sempre a coinvolgermi e a farmi ritagliare momenti di lettura in ogni secondo libero, per vedere come va avanti!!

Peccato aver scoperto che il libro che i libri in realtà sono due diversi! Esistono due volumi, che qui sono raggruppati tutti assieme (ma anche perché spesso, nelle edizioni italiane, ma
