Publisher's Summary

History speaks of a folk hero hundreds of years ago who fought against corrupt kings and saw the good in everyday people.
Legends say that this might not have been just one man, but many heroes to take up the name and mantle of Robin Hood throughout the ages.
The legend has been reborn in the American apocalypse.
Rob 'Hood' Huntington was an easygoing 20-something kid who loved house parties with good friends and bad jokes. He never thought about a life of survival.
Then in one day everything he knew was gone.
Lucky for him, he learned quickly he is a truly gifted marksman. Learning to live with pulling the trigger is something else entirely.
Two years have passed since the fall of civilization. Hidden away in the mid-Atlantic countryside rests the small town of Clearwater, where Hood, his sister Taylor, and an ex-cop by the name of Whiskey lead a group of survivors. Raging through the remnants of the northeast, two kings, the Kaiser and the Crusader, fight a bloody war for control of the land.
Hood, Whiskey, and the Clearwater crew survive by stealing just enough from the Kaiser to keep the town going. But they cannot stay hidden away forever.
If you loved The Last of Us, I Am Legend, or The Road, you won't want to miss Hood!

A Different Kind of Post Apocalyptic Novel

If you could sum up Hood in three words, what would they be?

Intense family connections


Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Hood. He felt a deep connection to family, community and humanity in general. The times he lived in were bleak yet his optimism and belief in the goodness of people shined. Hood had to do some hard things that came with a lot of emotional and physical pain and I found his reactions to be authentic to his character.


What does Michael Jameson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Certainly the bickering between Whiskey and Hood would not have been the same. Although the words might have been tough/rough, I could hear the underlying love that these two characters had for one another. Mr. Jameson also did a great job of expressing Hood's thoughts and feelings in the final scenes of the book (I cried).


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

We are all family.


Any additional comments?

I liked how realistic the characters were. All were flawed, none were perfect.

Not sure if I listened to a different version

After reading the reviews I'm a little confused. I'll admit I'm only on chapter 3, but the narration is pretty bad. He is monotone and too quick paced in non dialogue portions of the story and the voice changes are so slight or non existent during the dialogue you can barely tell the difference between characters.

So far I'm really enjoying the story, but the narration is a struggle to listen to. There is a considerable amount of swearing (which I don't mind at all and it fits the storyline), a good balance of violence and actual human emotion and as another reviewer mentioned, the characters are very 'real', as is the dialogue. I just wish the narration matched the level of the story.
