Nottingham Overview

Nottingham, By Nathan Makaryk, is a bold and thought-provoking retelling of the myth of Robin Hood. Makaryk brings the stark realities of medieval England to the forefront of the novel and refuses to sugar-coat the horrors faced by the people of this time. His grim realities drive home the ambiguous nature of morality and keeps the readers wondering if there even is a clear line between villainy and heroism. Makaryk has no qualms about shocking readers with the violence of the time, bringing the previously whimsical myth of Robin Hood into the sharp focus of historical context. Nottingham may not be for the faint of heart, but it is a vital retelling of morality that the myth requires.
