    Sappy but worthy

    To quickly summarize the story without giving the ending away, Lady Marian, a beatiful and clever 17-year-old, is saved from an unwanted marriage and an greedy plot to seize her lands by the legendary Robin Hood, and takes on a new life in Sherwood Forest. As the story proceeds, the two fall in love. 'Maid Marian' was enjoyable. And that's saying a lot for me, for I'm very picky about romance novels. It was very historically accurate, which is a good thing if you're doing a Robin Hood flick. There's nothing tackier than a genre flick that isn't even accurate with its settings. Another good thing Elsa Watson did, was not just focus on Marian and Robin Hood, but she zoomed in on what was going on with King Richard, described the peasant life, etc. That made it more believable. The one drawback was the romance. It was actually sort of interesting at first watching them fall in love, but in the blink of an eye, their relationship becomes very syrupy ('We were as close as a pair of stock doves, cooing and loving from dawn to dusk.' and stuff like 'Perhaps,' Robin said with a spark in his eye, 'Now that Robin has Marian to himself and alone, she might allow him to sit beside her on the bed?') and the whole second half of the book became centered around them.
