When it comes to Robin Hood (and other legends), there is no "historically correct". This version reads like a modern film script and looks decidedly cinematic, with cocky anachronistic one-liners and menacing shadowy close-ups of the villains' faces during the exposition of their schemes. Maid Marian stalls her imminent execution by apparently delivering an epic standup comedy routine in lieu of last words. Entertaining, but seemingly much more informed by Prince of Thieves and even Men in Tights than the old ballads.

This is a great book, showing how Robin Hood came to be. I'm not sure it's totally historically correct, but it makes for an interesting read, and the graphics are great!
