I wasn't aware, until almost finished with this version, that there is neither an "official" version of the Robin Hood stories nor a solely "authentic" source. The tales of Robin Hood have apparently existed for so long as part-myth, part-legend that many people over time have taken it upon themself to record his doings.

That said, this version is light and playful and I thoroughly enjoyed it. However, it's quite long and once you've read enough of the tales, you may start to idly wonder why you're still reading. I liked it, but I don't think it's necessary to read the whole thing.
