This was a very interesting summary of the various strands to the Robin Hood legend.

Some random woman goes "Oh, I am not an actress, but I can read out your audio book " and this is the end result.
I am sure the book has excellent content, but the audio performance is woeful and deeply irritating. She gabbles away. Can't act. Doesn't try. Its a complete farce.
This is a good book, and it was well read. It does lean more to the scholarly side that the action, adventure so be warned. Nigel Cawthowne does a great job exploring both the origins of the legend of Robin Hood and looking at how the legend has changed over time. While he doesn't pin down the “real” Robin Hood, I did find it interesting to find out how many parts of the legend can be tied to historical events and people.
