This was a fairly entertaining retelling not really remarkable to someone who s read as many as I have, but certainly solid It was kind of the neat the way she managed a bitthan usual to weave the stories into a less episodic format, sometimes only referencing familiar tales through character dialogue, sometimes connecting unexpected ones and telling them from different characters angles The ending was really interesting, and not as sad, because of this.The humor comes acrossin t This was a fairly entertaining retelling not really remarkable to someone who s read as many as I have, but certainly solid It was kind of the neat the way she managed a bitthan usual to weave the stories into a less episodic format, sometimes only referencing familiar tales through character dialogue, sometimes connecting unexpected ones and telling them from different characters angles The ending was really interesting, and not as sad, because of this.The humor comes acrossin the narration than the dialogue Fine just different There was a rather funny focus on Robin s singleness and some interesting things with Marian that I wish had been exploredthan they were She also included some kind of weird stories that I didn t remember having come across before, and in some cases seemed to be from fairy tale traditions As the book was supposedly based on the ballads, this made me wonder if there s some odd stories mixed in with Robin Hood in older traditions that haven t become part of the canon of normal retellings They felt a little like weird detours But it kept things interesting.She also sets the story actually in the 14th century and includes lots of little anecdotes about how things are going for the king and fighting with the Scots The Black Plague even gets a mention near the end So that was a kind of fun different thing to do, especially considering when our first Robin Hood ballads started popping up I was 3 chapters from the end when I realized this was an edited version But my 12 year old and I enjoyed it AND finished it Now on to King Arthur
