    Uh…hehe…I’ve never actually seen any of the film versions. ๐Ÿ˜› Does that mean I can’t be a true fan?? *cries*

    I’ve only read the book, the Paul Creswick one…which I LOVE!!!

    No noย  of course you are a true fan!! Im a mirror opposite, since I’ve seen multiple film versions but haven’t read an actual unabridged book. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll put Creswick on my TBR list. ๐Ÿ™‚ Do you have a particular (like illustrated ed.) you like? If so, ISBN please?

    I favor 2010 Russell Crowe and 1938 Errol Flynn. (I’ve also seen Patrick Bergin 1991 and Kevin Costner 1991 called Prince of Thieves but those are not as good.)

    *sighs with relief*

    Okay, yes… one edition of Robin Hood written by Paul Creswick is illustrated by Scribner Classics. And Scribner Classics has the BEST illustrations!!! I love them…but then again that’s just personal opinion. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Wow…you’ve seen a lot of film versions! But then again there are a lot. ๐Ÿ˜€

    So I thought that when I try to tag @theinconceivable1 is hard. Until I saw how you typo-ed my name xD “pursewisdom”

    You made my day.

    Anyway, thank you for the reference!! I’ll check that out and possibly ask it for Christmas.

    Yeah I have, my dad’s a fan as well, so we’ve seen a bunch of versions. ๐Ÿ™‚ Honestly, when you get a chance, check out Crowe’s and Flynn’s versions.

    BTW, I forgot to add that I LOVE Dostoevsky! Currently reading The Brothers Karamazov right now.

    I totally did not see that!

    ๐Ÿ˜’ Seriously…me and my tagging problems. (Although that is kinda funny that I wrote purse wisdom.๐Ÿ˜)

    Okay, I will look into that some time!

    I have never actually read any of Dostoevsky works…although I am familiar with him and what he wrote. I just loved this quote!

    ๐Ÿ˜€ No big deal, really! Wouldn’t it be funny though if there is another user called “PurseofWisdom” though?

    I’ve only read Crime & Punishment so far from Dostoevsky, and it was SO AWESOME. His writings have some real depth and philosophy, so a high recommend there. So far this Brothers Karamazov book is great as well. One thing though is patience, because there’s a bit of melodrama/run-ons in his prose, as with most classics. But most of the content is very thoughtful and interesting!

    FYI, If you need to get a copy of Brothers Karamazov: First is an audiobook and second is text – both in public domain ๐Ÿ™‚ You can also search for Crime & Punishment on these websites too. However, both books deal with very difficult topics (such as murder among other things such as our conscience of right and wrong), so a level of maturity is needed; you can read a Wikipedia summary if you wish to learn more about that….

    That would be hilarious!

    Yeah, my sister has read Brothers Karamazov and I think she read Crime and Punishment, too….my dad did at least…and they liked them. So, I do know something about his style and what he wrote about…a little bit. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thanks for the links!!!
