Any additional comments?

As with the first book I listened to; the superb Wolf's Head. I was struggling with some well known authors and wondering why I was bothering. Then the breath of fresh air, Steven's writing. Again came along.
This book is not for the PC. That is why it has a realistic feel to it. That is probably pretty much how they spoke then. With plenty of strong Anglo-Saxon words that have now come into common usage around the world.
The descriptions are graphic, necessarily so, and transport you to Sherwood Forest with the outlaws. As in my previous review I do not intend to give too much away, as that would spoil it for the new reader.
Just take the book on board and enjoy it and be swished away quicker than Robin's arrow.
Highly recommended.

Hood Fan happy

Would you listen to The Wolf and the Raven again? Why?

I would listen to The Wolf and The Raven again for the simple reason that I thoroughly enjoyed it.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Although I like they way Robin is portrayed in this series I must admit I really liked Sir Guys character. He is very calm and aware of his own appearance, people that know little of him think of him as a mild person but deep down inside he is an angry slightly deranged soul. His hatred for Robin grows throughout out the book until the very end. Because of what had happens to Sir Guy in his past he has no emotion or connection with any person which makes him a very dangerous man.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

I liked the scenes that involved Robin and Sir Guy. Robins growing fear of Sir Guy coupled with Sir Guys hatred of Robin, makes their meetings enjoyable to listen to especially as Robin's growing doubt about his own capabilities starts to wear him down.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Again as with The Wolfs Head there are some very funny moments in this story and sad a worrying times too. There is also some shocks involving some of the best known character which I will not spoil.


Any additional comments?

Enjoyed the book a lot and will listen to it again, can't wait for part 3.
