This is a solid, satisfying presentation of the Robin Hood legend that condenses some of the main incidents common to most popular versions of the story. The main characters are true to the general conceptions 20th and 21st century audiences/readers are accustomed to. The audiobook is well read by John McAndrew, and is enhanced by brief snatches of classical music and a selection of appropriate and occasional (good quality) sound effects. With a single actor reading all parts and narration, this ...more

I have always loved this story. The noble outlaw, Robin Hood holds a special place in my heart as he does in the hearts of millions. I have heard many versions of his story over the years but none as good as this re-telling by Benedict Flynn. The Author really captures the rough times of the era, as well as portraying the characters of Robin Hood and his friends in vivid and colourful detail. His settings too are wonderfully described. The book is also masterfully narrated, and this, together wi ...more

The kids saw the Disney version of Robin Hood for the first time this summer and quickly became obsessed with it. To balance out the Disney effect, we checked out this audio book version of Robin Hood. Although it was rather "old" for the kids, it kept their interest and even led to some lengthy discussions about, among other things, the Crusades, taxes, the relative virtues of stealing, and even torture. ("What are lashes? Why are they giving him thirty lashes? How will that help him talk?") Th ...more

This is the classic story of Robin Hood and his merry men.

Benedict Flynn has rewritten a number of classic for kids, specifically for audio recordings, and he does a great job. The stories are not dumbed-down or Disney-fied. The reader on Robin Hood, John McAndrew, is quite good and the story is accompanied by sound effects (like the sound of someone walking in the snow and the thwock of an arrow hitting its mark) and classical music. Logan, who discovered pirates at 5 and is now onto knights at 6, loved this story.

Well, it was Robin Hood. It was nice to hear how the original story goes and then think about all the different versions there have been made of this story--to know which parts were true to the book and which added. In the book there is basically an epilogue which I think should just be deleted. It was good and then he tacks on this little chapter at the end which just leaves you unhappy.

I swear this book is the same that Errol Flynn's movie, Adventures of Robin Hood, was based on. It was very fun to listen to. The audiobook is only a couple of hours long but it has all the fun due to the narrator doing such a great job with all the voices.

I don't remember this book very well so I don't think it made that good of an impression on me. I remember it being very historical and a little bit boring. I wouldn't recommend

There were no surprises in this classic tale but it was still a delightful distraction from folding laundry and making dinner.
