Episodes of Robin Hood in novel format

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This series is easy to listen to in one sitting; they are all about an hour long. Richard Armitage does a fantastic job narrating. I find his impersonation of Keith Allen playing the Sheriff of Nottingham hilariously spot on! If you have seen the BBC Television series the story will not be anything new as these are simple novelizations of the episodes. But for me anything narrated by Richard Armitage is worth what you pay.

very very over-priced

What would have made Robin Hood: Will You Tolerate This? (Episode 1) better?

this is a great story with a good performance but the price makes no sense at all

Excellent new version of Robin Hood

Robin Hood is done over the top and made to constantly look at the ill mannered and charitable character, but this tv series shows depth and humor. Overall love the tv series and enjoyed the audible.
