Sintesi dell'editore

The 15th-century Wars of the Roses serve as backdrop for this swashbuckling historical novel from the author of Kidnapped and Treasure Island.

In a time of shifting loyalties and trecherous alliances, young Dick Shelton is betrayed by his brutal guardian. Intent on rescuing the woman he loves, Dick joins forces with a mysterious fellowship intent on dispensing their own brand of justice.Through one trap after another, each choice Dick makes begins to have dire consequences—not only for himself, but for the fate of England!

Excellent writing, excellent narration, good story

This is a worthwhile story, but not so "hot" as Treasure Island. I think the Narrator saved it from making me kind of mad that I bought the book. In the end I recommend this book third in line, "thusly": after Treasure Island, then Kidnapped.

Spastic adventures

This story is wild and full of all the things boys love. The narration is extremely well done.

I thought it was better

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

lWould have to change some things, for example,: Dick Shelton is looks more like a lady in distress. It is a poor character, little interesting. The Black Arrow Group - who are they? The author didn't explain why the group existe... only existe. And who was Dick's father? Why was he murder?

What could Robert Louis Stevenson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Probably develop better the characters. Better structure the story in a way that makes it more attractive

Would you be willing to try another one of Ron Keith’s performances?

I don't know.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Black Arrow?

I wouldn't cut, I would rewrite the third part of the book.
