Nathan Makaryk's epic and daring debut rewrites the Robin Hood legend, giving voice to those history never mentioned and challenging who's really a hero and a villain. "The most pleasurable reading experience I've had since first discovering George R.R. Martin'sA Song of Ice and Fire." -- Bryan Cogman, Co-Executive Producer and Writer,Game of Thrones No king. No rules. England, 1191. King Richard is half a world away, fighting for God and his own ambition. Back home, his country languishes, bankrupt and on the verge of anarchy. People with power are running unchecked. People without are growing angry. And in Nottingham, one of the largest shires in England, the sheriff seems intent on doing nothing about it. As the leaves turn gold in the Sherwood Forest, the lives of six people--Arable, a servant girl with a secret, Robin and William, soldiers running from their pasts, Marion, a noblewoman working for change, Guy of Gisbourne, Nottingham's beleaguered guard captain, and Elena Gamwell, a brash, ambitious thief--become intertwined. And a strange story begins to spread . . .… (mais)

Topsy-turvy version of the Robin Hood legend. Skimmed toward the end. Beginning brilliant but it petered out. ( )

As a short preface, I was only ever familiar with Howard Pyle's book, "The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood," and the Disney film. And even then, it's been so long since I've read the book or seen the film that only the most memorable of details have stuck with me.

So Nottingham didn't feel like much of an adaptation or reimagination to me, and I judged it mostly as a historical novel about a character who may or may not have been a real person.

It took a while to get through this book, and not because I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to savor the experience. I wouldn't say it was a slog, but I put it down for almost a month at one point because I just wasn't invested in the story.

The wordiness got a bit much for me, in that it didn't have much of an appealing prose style or anything else going for it. Also, there's a lot of anachronistic language; the author defends this in the author's note in the end, but ultimately I didn't care for it.

The characters saved the book, I think. I enjoyed the characterization of Robin and the others, especially Marion, and I loved most of their banter.

Maybe fans of the Robin Hood legend would like it more?

No King. No rules. England, 1911. I love a good retelling and I've never encountered a Robin Hood one before! This one twists fairly far away from the original classic story(which doesn't bother me, but may bother others so keep it in mind). I love that Marion isn't just a silly girl on the sidelines in this and Makaryk did a great job of not having good or evil characters, rather mixing everyone into imperfect shades of grey. He immerses you in the time period and his details behind each character, their mannerisms, and their motivations is amazing. That being said, you really have to commit to this book. It's a long one at almost 500 pages, but it is a stunning example of a creative retelling.

NOTTINGHAM opens with a clever ruse engaging King Richard the Lionhearted with his two guardsman. The action weaves between the King's conquests in Normandy as he moves toward the Crusade to capture Jerusalem and the movements of Marion and Lord
Walter Locksley (father of one of the guardsman) back at home in England.

Overriding both the battles and the charity at Locksley Castle are the machinations of the Sheriff of Nottingham. Modern slang updates the many detailed conversations as
complicated intrigues develop. For readers who aren't careful and intent followers of
the conflicting plots, things may appear convoluted or confusing. For fans, this is an
intriguing reimagining of the Robin Hood and Maid Marion tale which is fun to witness. ( )

Nottingham is a brilliant deconstruction of the classic tale of Robin Hood; Nathan Makaryk removes a lot of the folkloric elements (e.g. knightly chivalry) associated with the original legend and focuses instead on the political climate and historical events that allowed for such acts of rebellion to occur. His gritty realism is a welcome departure from the typically fanciful depictions of Robin Hood's Medieval England. Additionally, the author introduces new female characters to the story and empowers them in a way that feels genuine to the time period. In many ways, Makeryk’s treatment of characters like Lady Marion/Maid Marian reminds me of what Marion Zimmer Bradley did for the women of Arthurian legend. Overall, Makaryk does a fantastic job of reinterpreting a familiar story for a modern audience.

Disclaimer: I received an advance reading copy of Nottingham, and my review is based on an uncorrected proof. Many thanks to Forge for sending me a copy. ( )

Set in 1191 under the rule of King Richard of Normandy, this historical fiction novel twists in everyones favorite bandit and his gang. A Robin Hood retelling like no other.
.
When I received this book, and saw it was almost 500 pages, I didn't expect to give it the full 5 stars. I loved every page of this book! It has friendships, romance, drama, humor, suspence and a big twist ending I never expected! Nathan Makaryk states in the authors note, he wanted to pick apart the story of Robin Hood and give it real dynamics. I think he definitely did an amazing job! This book does have a decent sized cast of characters, but I found it was pretty easy to follow, especially if you know anything about Robin Hood. Definitely can't wait to see more from this author!
