Outlaw - Angus Donald

I received a pre-read book of the Dutch translation of Outlaw, a Robin Hood story.


My knowledge about Robin Hood was nothing more than 'He steals from the rich and gives to the poor', so everything is this novel was actually quite new to me.


Alan Dale is the storyteller after he was forced to join them after he stole something in his early teens. We get a look in the lives of the people living in those woods and also into the history of 12/13th century England, with some political schemes and everything. Overall, I enjoyed reading this first novel in the new Sherwood series, it was a nice and quick read. I've since read the second book as well.


Note: I read a Dutch translation of this book.
