I like the story of Robin Hood, so I got the sample version of this book. But every time I tried to open it, my nook color screen went black. I had to turn my nook off and back on to even have access to the menu bar at the bottom.

As an avid reader of every Robin Hood I can get my hands on, this version provided and interesting insight to the well known tale. The characters are believable and he includes scenes and characters usully omitted in most other Robin Hoods. The afterword is interesting, but it was slightly depressing. Recomended for all Robin Hood fanatics
