    The Ghost of Sherwood by Wilson Harp is an interesting take of t

    The Ghost of Sherwood by Wilson Harp is an interesting take of the classic Robin Hood of Sherwood forest. The writer is an extremely gifted writer with a descriptive flair and a creative mind. His ability to rewrite Robin Hood and turn it into a new yet "classic" tale is a marvel. I look forward to reading more of this author. This book is read like a movie, making it so easy to visualize each scene.
    A great read and addition to the bookshelf.

    The Ghost of Sherwood was a unique take on the old beloved tale

    The Ghost of Sherwood was a unique take on the old beloved tale of Robin Hood. It definitely took a different route than most Robin Hood stories, in a refreshing way. This had a feeling a historical believability about it, rather than just a legend.
    It was well written well, containing some really nice lines of description. One I especially liked was how Tuck's hairstyle was described as a large egg nested in a mop of brown hair. That was a great visual!
    A few things I didn't like were how everyone seemed to figure out things so easily, except for Guy. Was it that obvious? Or was Guy just stupid? Also it was quite awful, when you stop to think about it, what Robert condoned later on to keep up the ruse up. All those poor innocent soldiers caught in the crossfires.
    Regardless, for lovers of Robin Hood, this is something new and different to add to your collections.

    I received a free copy from the author for a review.

    An interesting take on Robin Hood. Told from an unusual perspect

    An interesting take on Robin Hood. Told from an unusual perspective (no spoilers) that allowed the love angle between Robin and Marion to remain in the background, focusing instead on the action in the story. I would have liked more show and less tell - the telling made the story a little dry.

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review.
