Recommends it for: Robin Hood / Chaucer Students
As the author of this novella, I thought it might be a good idea to put this book in context.

Whereas many of the recent clutch of zombie books are mash-ups of classic stories, my book takes the characters from the Robin Hood stories and puts them into an original horror genre situation.

For your information, the Robin Hood stories we are familiar with actually come from legend fragments and are originally from many sources. Roger Lancelyn Green collected these fragments together to put his clas

EDIT:

The title made me think this was just another zombie-mash up book, jumping on the P&P&Z bandwagon. This is understandable considering that in the last year I have seen Elizabeth Bennet, Jo March, Dorothy Gale, Alice Liddell, Huckleberry Finn, Ebeneezer Scrooge, Abraham Lincoln, Queen Victoria, and more, fight zombies, vampires and/or werewolves.

However, see the author comment below - it appears the concept is part of a bigger picture with the emphasis on Chaucer and the modern world rather

I enjoyed this read, very well written, a spunky tale with a difference. I don't like marking down but nothing against nobody its just not dark and violent enough for me to love it. Not a page turner if you like blood spitting in your face, but if you're a fan of clean fantasy then this is right up your avenue of fairy tales ... with zombies.

If you’re into zombie tales, you’ll love this book. If you’re a Robin Hood fan, you’ll love this book. If you adore Chaucer, you’ll love this book. If you’re a fan of zombie tales, Robin Hood, and Chaucer – you must have already read this book, because before Paul Freeman wrote this work, I doubt if such a fan existed. This is cross-genre writing with a vengeance. I came to it as a Chaucer fan, who remembers liking Robin Hood as a child, but who has never had much to do with zombie tales. I foun ...more

This book is impressive. I enjoy zombie fiction and I like paranormal, classic fixation mash ups, but this work is really something special. If you are a word nerd, you will definitely appreciate the iambic pentameter and rhyming couplets, which are impressive, but they just melt away as the story unfolds. The author is definitely doing a great job of making iambic pentameter and The Canterbury Tale more accessible to the average reader.
