If you’re into zombie tales, you’ll love this book. If you’re a Robin Hood fan, you’ll love this book. If you adore Chaucer, you’ll love this book. If you’re a fan of zombie tales, Robin Hood, and Chaucer – you must have already read this book, because before Paul Freeman wrote this work, I doubt if such a fan existed. This is cross-genre writing with a vengeance. I came to it as a Chaucer fan, who remembers liking Robin Hood as a child, but who has never had much to do with zombie tales. I found in this astonishing work the spirit of Chaucer living on: immaculate iambic pentameter rhyming couplets that never falter and therefore become invisible; great wit; great storytelling; vibrant characters; fabulous drama. I also relived my childhood enjoyment of the tales of Robin Hood. I won’t give away the ending here, but will just say it’s genuinely moving and is told with authenticity and a clear love for the traditional tales of one of England’s best heroes. As for the zombies… ‘She pulled him from the gore-bespattered mound, / Where strugg’ling for his life upon the ground / His body was immobilized by hands / Which soon plucked out his guts in glist’ning strands.’ Horror fans will not be disappointed. This stuff rocks.
