So I'm almost to the end of The Outlaws of Sherwood, which is kind of an adaptation/interpretation of the Robin Hood story. It's pretty good, a little preachy and probably not at all true to the 'real' story... but then again, it's gotta be closer than the Disney version. I draw the line at singing animals. ;)

I've reread this story... well, I think this will be my 3rd time since I got it about a year ago. It's easy reading, and there's naturally ship, and it's got a nice pretty cover and when I'm looking for something to read (since I'm too cheap to go out and buy Jacqueline Carey's latest) it's hard to not pick it up. But I don't like how it ends. And I swear, every time I read it I hold out this weird little hope that maybe, this time, the ending will be different.

So I want to know (and this will be especially interesting if Wendy chimes in ;))...

How should the story end?

Robin fights Guy and then gets shipped off to fight with the King in Palestine?

Robin marries Marian and the King laughs that he has an outlaw for an inlaw?

Robin puts on a Bryan Adams CD and practices his accent?

Come on, I'm curious. (And I so adore the 'curious' mood icon. Just lookit him! Hee!)
