Thank you. 🙂 Finally…someone who doesn’t hate Robin Hood.

Which film version of Robin is your favorite?

Uh…hehe…I’ve never actually seen any of the film versions. 😛 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 no 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. 🙂 I’ll put Creswick on my TBR list. 🙂 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. 😀
Wow…you’ve seen a lot of film versions! But then again there are a lot. 😀

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. 🙂 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.November 29, 2018 at 9:19 pm #62417
I totally did not see that!
😒 Seriously…me and my tagging problems. (Although that is kinda funny that I wrote purse wisdom.😁)
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!

😀 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 🙂 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….November 30, 2018 at 5:40 pm #62646
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. 😀
Thanks for the links!!!
