One hour scholarly examination of the variations and transformations of the tale known as Robin Hood from the high middle ages to present day with nods given to Sir Walter Scott, Douglas Fairbanks, and later movies. Was he real? Was ANY version based in truth? Listen and learn.
JC has a pleasant voice quality, inflection, and cadence and saves such scholarly work from becoming a boring lecture.

I received this book as a gift in exchange for a honest and unbiased review. This book explores the differences in the legends of Robin Hood and how we portrayed him through out the years. Even in movies Robin Hood has been portrayed in many different ways. While this book isn't the super exciting blockbuster, it is interesting enough to keep my attention. Sometimes history and behaviors really fascinate me.
The author, Charles River Editors did a fine job in their research. The material is original and changes as our world changes (our folklore changes with time too). The narrator, Jack Chekijian did a good job narrating this book and has a well developed voice for narrations.

quite an interesting listen...only let down by a very stilted reading, it really needs to be more relaxed and personal, rather than just reading the words off the page.
that said, it is an interesting book, covering the history of the Robin Hood myth and it's development over the centuries.
