    One thought on “Hooded Man: An Omnibus of Post-Apocalyptic Novels”

    1. Hooray! I'm so excited, this is my first fictional Robin Hood book review in a while! :D time to return to my most favorites legendary character ever! So! "hooded man"! what to say? It's Robin Hood. In the future. Like the back of the book says "after the world dies, the legend is reborn."It's Robin Hood with machine guns and bombs and helicopters and fighter planes. lots of gunfire and explosions. crazy cultists and crazier trauma victims. Our author get's extra points for the creativeness of t [...]

    2. This is by far on my list of the greatest SciFi ever written!!! I absolutely loved the way Paul Kane twisted and recreated the legend of Robin Hood. Now that I'm done I may just re-read it all over again! Better yet, I hope they make this into a movie trilogy! THAT would be epic (if they did it right)!!!!!!!! o.O

    3. Very good book. It's three books in one and my review is for the first book. I will eventually finish the other two.

    4. Arrowhead review:If you could take the apocalypse, and infuse it with Robin Hood, Kane's novel is what you'd get. I was initially drawn to this omnibus because of not only the post-apocalyptic novel, but because of the fantastical elements that drive the story. This isn't just a PA novel. This is a PA novel that reverts to a medieval society. So much of what I wanted from my own novel stemmed from the premise that after a world ending event, mankind would be unable to sustain its technological p [...]

    5. This is technically three books wrapped into one, and since I have so many other books to read, I'll be reading/reviewing one book at a time.ArrowheadThis was a great reimagining of the Robin Hood legend. Set in a world ravaged by a mysterious plague that essentially kills you by making you vomit your guts out, the first book starts off with a very somber, gruesome few pages. The death of Robert's wife and child is bad, but the worst part was his dog being burned alive. Freaking depressing. It w [...]

    6. Robin Hood revisited.I would be too scared to revamp a classic tale into something modern.Paul Kane has not only done it, but in my view, he has pulled it off.One would think that the story would become predictable as it is based on a well-known tale, but this it not the case. Plenty of twists and turns and unexpected action scenes kept me turning the pages, wanting to know what will happen next.I bought the Omnibus edition and thoroughly enjoyed the first book. I could however not really get in [...]

    7. An interesting marriage of the Robin Hood legend and a post-apocalyptic tale. I think, like Eric Flint's 1632, the first novel was pretty decent. The middle novel fell off for me, while the third, which added that supernatural element back in with the arrival of the native American, was pretty decent. The major downfall was the battles after the first novel seemed exceptionally 1-sided in favor of the good guys. I got the bows and arrows against guns and jeeps and stuff in the first but battlin [...]

    8. The first book was amazing, I blitzed it in a day, but the second and third became ridiculously boring and repetitive. The first enemy, DeFalaise, was a classic bad guy with a modern twist, he slotted right into his place in the storyline and he made it worth reading. However, the protagonist, Robert Stokes, is an over dramatised and over written character with no resemblance to the man he used to be. In the second book, I already guessed the storyline of Tanek, that's all I will say so as to no [...]

    9. This Omnibus is the first three of the Hooded Man series. It is a series within a series of Post-Apocalptic novels. The Hooded Man section takes place in England and is a retelling of the Robin Hood legendor maybe a better way to describe it is a version of history repeating itself. Our main character finds himself reliving the story of Robin Hood and living up to his predecessor's legend. He protects first the people of Nottingham Shire and eventually branches out into helping restore order in [...]

    10. An interesting modernization of the Robin Hood myth set in a post apocalyptic dystopian version of England. There are three books included in this collection, the first one was quite good but books two and three are basically rehashes of the first and are fairly derivative. I found myself skipping entire chapters in the third book because I didn't care about the side characters. Apparently these books are part of a larger shared universe, which may warrant exploring as the concept is interesting [...]

    11. First book was ok. The 2nd and 3rd books were so bad as to be almost unreadable. The villains became so insanely evil as to become ludicrous caricatures of "EVIL". The authors descriptions of fights makes it obvious that his knowledge of fighting, and tactics, and what is even physically possible, is based entirely ( I suspect) on bad hollywood or hong kong B grade action flicks. This is not sci-fi. It's fantasy.

    12. A re imagining of the Robin Hood legend in a post-apocalyptic world. A light read with few new ideas and written at a very elementary level more Michael Bay than Ingmar Bergman as it was. That being said, it was engaging and enjoyable and worth the minimal effort in reading. A light snack more than a main course but sometimes that all you need.

    13. I finished the first of the trilogy. It was pretty good. Re-imagining Robin Hood successfully is quite the feat, especially such an old warhorse like Robin Hood. Unfortunately I have to agree with the other reviews. The rest of the trilogy wasn't very good.

    14. Very cool. Kinda like having the Hunger Games during a zombie apocalypse, only with extras from the set of King Arthur & a World War II movie rampaging periodically through the background.

    15. This was a great integration of Robin Hood mythology and apocalyptic literature. However, the last installment went in an unexpected and not entirely well incorporated direction.
