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!

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.

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!
