As story, Robin Hood lore traditionally has very few women, and I really ppreciate the addition of more women to even out the cast of male characters.Something that surprised me while I was reading a nove was how the storytelling and dialogue had a distinct kin of modern humor.
I read anothe ook because I like Robin Hood, and because I eally njoy thi story as it is, even if it shoul be flawed in some areas.
It does n't ave to e the same as before, but there 's no reason to laugh at it just for the sake of laughing.I had two major problems with nove, outside of its Robin Hood content.1) There is a past event that involves truly brutal violence towards a woman.
( view spoiler) [ Vivian, Marion 's sister, is brutally and gruesomely murdered by Robin 's brother, Edmond.
also, he nove and the characters stop caring about Vivian 's murder the moment the shock value reveal is over.
It seems as if she existed primarily to give Robin a reason to eave and go to war, and after thi, this terrible thing that happened to two of our main characters is no longer important.
( hide spoiler) ] I am only a fan of women getting hurt just to further a man 's plot, especially when the event and the oman is soon forgotten after.2) ( view spoiler) [ And especially when the urderer is mentally disabled or mentally ill and the story equates that with the fac he killed her.
( hide spoiler) ] Th book has a problem with mental illness and mental disabilities.
( view spoiler) [ I have had enough of shock value murder in th essay.
