4.0 étoiles sur 5 une histoire originale 2 novembre 2010
Par Bénédicte TOP 500 COMMENTATEURS VOIX VINE
Achat vérifié
C'est une histoire qui ne reprend pas un des épisodes de la série Robin des bois. R.Armitage interprète tous les personnages en imitant les intonations de certains acteurs de la série, c'est très réussi!

Le seul bémol de ces livres audios est qu'ils ne sont pas pourvus d'un livret avec l'histoire écrite, si la maîtrise de l'anglais n'est pas parfaite il faut parfois plusieurs écoute pour bien en saisir le sens. On ne peut donc acheter ce livre audio pour un enfant apprenant l'anglais à l'école.

Sinon, le rythme du récit est enlevé, un bon moment à passer chez les "Hood".

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Always worth listening to the charming Richard Armitage 19 juillet 2009
Par Amazonian Since 1999 - Publié sur Amazon.com

I bought this CD just to listen to Richard Armitage, who could make a grocery list sound sexy and interesting. This audiobook is much better than that, of course. The story is contemporary to season 3 of Robin Hood but without being one of the televised episodes. It has a nice, supernatural side plot with the character of Marian returning to haunt Sir Guy both when he's asleep and awake. The main story of the sheriff using the pretext of witch burning to try and catch Robin gives some interesting historical insight into the period, although this whole series famously ignores historical accuracy in its dialogue and philosophy.

Armitage is a master of doing different voices for each character, so that it is easy to forget that one is listening to just one actor perform it all. There is also a fun, short interview with Richard at the end.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great addition to the tale, not worth Amazon's price 5 septembre 2009
Par Sherwood Fan - Publié sur Amazon.com
I absolutely love this audio book. I love that they included Marian, something series 3 failed to do. But don't buy it from Amazon, these sellers are nothing but rip-offs. I got mine directly from the company that made them, Big Finish. Only $15.00 (plus s/h). There are also 5 other audio books in this series all equally as good. If you are a fan of Robin Hood and upset the show got axed, you have to buy these audio books. It's like getting 6 all new episodes.

Rebecca Levine's characters are true to the series. Richard Armitage's reading breathes life into the tale and leaves you wanting to spend more time in Nottingham (even though there is no running water).
Surely Sir Guy can be redeemed?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Okay story, brilliantly told 1 juin 2011
Par Traxy - Publié sur Amazon.com
This audiobook is set during season three, but is not actually an episode that was a part of that season. The things you hear are not things you will have seen on TV. It would seem "The Witchfinders" is set in the beginning of season three, after Robin's return to the land of the living, but before Guy gets carted off to Prince John, but unsure exactly when. This is based on the Sheriff being present, Isabella being absent and Guy being haunted by Marian's spirit. Oy vey, you should hear him angst about it. It's a real emo fest! And I love Guy even more for it.

Brood: check! Angst: Double-check!

The story is pretty good - hey, it's got witches! Or actually, it's got one suspected witch (Kate, haha!) - but the thing that strikes me the most is the reading itself. Richard Armitage can act, yes, but he gives every single character their own voice, and what's more, you recognise them from the show! Maybe not so much Marian and really not Tuck, but then again, Tuck was a newbie so the other actors hadn't heard him as much. You clearly hear Guy (obviously), the Scottish brogue of Little John, the cockney of Alan, the brusque Sheriff (a bit too brusque for my liking, he doesn't bark like that all the time), Robin, Kate, Much ... I was sitting in the car perfectly gobsmacked at the sheer skill with which he inhabits all the characters. It's amazing! Okay, the sound effects don't feel all that necessary, realistically, but wow, the reader's voice acting more than makes up for that.

So, the story. One of the Sheriff's soldiers mentions something about witches, and it gives the Sheriff an idea to solve the problem of Robin Hood: get a load of witchfinders and accuse Robin of witchcraft. The people are stupid enough to buy into that sort of thing, he reckons, and some witchfinders come along and seem very impressive. They can tell people things about dead relatives and whatnot (a very un-subtle cold reading), and a little girl says she's seen a witch, dancing with the devil in the forest: Kate. They test her with a fake needle and of course she feels no pain (it's retractable), so she's quickly whisked off to prison and the Outlaws have to try and find a way to get her out before she's tried and executed.

Meanwhile, Guy is hallucinating. He keeps seeing the ghost of Marian and she has issues with what he's done in the past and what he's doing to people now. She tries to make him realise that he might be a bad person, but he doesn't have to be, and he begins to listen to her, however reluctantly it is at first. She guilt-trips him something terribly and he's very emo about it all, like I said, but I love Emo Guy and the way this "episode" gives us a look inside his haunted mind ... it's everything a Guy fan could want.

The story fits in very well with season three. It adds an extra level of depth to the character of Guy and we realise exactly how much Marian's death is changing him. This story feels like a great big audio hug to me, and I've never been overly keen on the show itself in general. You have to listen to this, if you can get a hold of it.

As an added bonus, which made me all warm and fuzzy inside, it comes with a special feature (!): an interview with Richard Armitage at the end! They talk about Guy and Robin Hood and Marian's death and a lot of things. It's interesting and informative, and took me by surprise, as I had no idea it was there.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best audio books in the market 28 décembre 2010
Par Beatrice B - Publié sur Amazon.com
Not only we had the luck to entertain ourselves with the TV version of one the most fascinating character ever created in BBC's version of Sir Guy of Gisborne but we got to delight our ears listening to Richard Armitage in this audiobook where we get the chance to experience some of the guilt, the pain and the demons that haunt Sir Guy after tragedy has fallen. Armitage does a tremendous work in this performance. The cast is incredibly well voiced by this actor, the story is well paced with plenty of drama, tinted with some dark tones (with some light comedy here and there). If you liked the series, this is a must buy.
