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!

Hood

Any additional comments?

I received a free audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

This was a pretty good book - it had a decent plot with good characterization, but the narrator was spectacular. He had a way of bringing you in to the novel and making you care about the characters a lot quicker than most narrators. All of the characters were necessary, which is rare because normally in a novel you can imagine the novel without a specific character, but all of the characters in this post-apocalypse Robin Hood novel were necessary.

Great book - so great that I had to finish it in one sitting!

An post apocalyptic story any living humanoid would enjoy!!!

Oh my god.

Finished this in like three days.

It was THAT good.

I fell in love with the main character, Hood, and his kind heart and jock-like ways.

The story itself is wonderfully written. Even in audiobook you can tell that Mr Pickering is a masterful writer, with an eloquent voice and a skill for the descriptive.

I had hoped to pick up a copy of the novel but when I saw there was an audiobook I was delighted, as a new job has meant spending long hours commuting.

Um, NOT LONG ENOUGH.

Once I began listening to 'Hood', there wasn't enough hours in the day. I developed a full on crush on Rob and cannot wait for the sequel, though the tragedy of this story will certainly stop you for six. I'm going to listen to Harry Potter now so that I can escape from the realistic horror that this novel describes, and the viewpoint it provides on both human nature and animals, and the thin line which divides us from the latter.

Please note, this book is awesome. You're missing out if you don't read/listen.

I'll definitely be waiting for the audio of 'Whiskey' too. Get on it, Pickering.
