Narrator David Thorn breathes fresh life into the classic tales of Robin Hood in this frolic through Sherwood Forest. A faithful rendition of his noble deeds displays the robber's timeless appeal, overcoming some archaic language and countless references to ale. The songs and ballads, ably performed by Thorn, add to the production's merit. Individual exploits within this extensive audiobook create plenty of stopping places, as listeners meander leisurely through medieval England. Thorn's booming voice chronicles the excitement of archery matches and skirmishes with the Sheriff of Nottingham, which make Robin Hood a perennial favorite with adventure lovers. Despite an unassuming package, this audiobook is a stirring retelling of a well-loved story. C.A. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
