Publisher's Summary

The first book of the trilogy, Shadow of the Wolf, is set in Sherwood Forest in medieval England. In it, Tim Hall presents a Robin Hood more heroic and horrific than ever before: a 14-year-old blind, ruthless assassin and elemental creature of the forest, hell-bent on a mission to avenge his father's death and the brutal abduction of his soul mate, Marian. It is a breathtakingly original - and utterly compelling - retelling of the Robin Hood legend.

Great narrator. Tedious story

First off, the narrator is brilliant and manages to give each character such a distinct voice that I struggled to believe that it was all done by one person. However, the text itself is so frustrating that I didn't enjoy it. I simply didn't understand why Robin would give everything up and leave the Keep to go find Marion - and I found all that 'our fates are entwined; you are me and I am you' guff really irritating. Infuriatingly, the bit I enjoyed most was when Robin was training to be a knight - and was really annoyed when he left to go chase after some spoiled little rich girl.

Disappointing

I am struggling with this one - it may be the first audiobook I don't finish, and that's surprising because it promised to be just the sort of novel I enjoy. But it seems slow and the characters don't engage me. It's a pity because the narration was very good.

Great story but badly performed

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The voices chosen for the characters.

What did you like best about this story?

Great story line and great idea well written. A mix of magic, folklore, fantasy and the legend.

What didn’t you like about Joe Jameson’s performance?

Voices chosen for characters are wrong. Robin and other important characters are portrayed as slow and stupid by the voices they are given. A real shame. The sheriff does not seem as frightening as he should be, just a bit dim. I think they were trying for Midlands accents but being from the Midlands myself, I can honestly say we don't all speak slowly and stupidly! Watch Peaky Blinders and you will get the idea!

Did Shadow of the Wolf inspire you to do anything?

Buy the paper version

Any additional comments?

Being a fan of Robin Hood stories, I couldn't resist this book and am not dissappointed by the story. A great idea and well written. The narration is OK but some of the voices used are wrong. Characters who should be strong and charismatic seem slow and stupid. A real shame. I might buy it in paper form and re-read it myself
