    FREE READ Ç Hodd by Adam Thorpe Hodd by Adam ThorAs difficult a novel as I've finished in a long time but also a marvel of sustained and disciplined imagination all the impressive as the novel's central conceit that it read as a translated Latin text written in the hand of a monk several centuries before the novel in the form that we know it existed cannot but have been hostile to Thorpe's instincts as an artist Too thorny a read to give it five stars but much too ambitious and visionary to give it anything lower than four whatever its unfriendliness to the reader

    FREE READ Ç Hodd by Adam Thorpe Hodd by Adam ThorRobin Hood is one of my favorite stories from when I was a kid to now So any book about him will draw me in Hodd does have a uniue way of telling this story The actual author Adam Thorpe writes it as an academic in the 1920’s translating on old medieval manuscript written by a monk telling his own story of meeting Robin Hood as a sort of autobiographyconfession So it’s a real author writing as a fake one translating an imaginary document Got it So it’s written in the first person in a weird mix of old English and modern and as it’s an academic ‘translation’ has footnotes explaining certain phrases I’d say the way this is written is very awkward for me anyway It was hard to read easily where many times I had to re read sentences to get a prop
