That hero is Matthias, a young mouse who must rise above his fears and failures to save his friends at Redwall Abbey. The villain is Cluny the Scourge, one of the most deliciously despicable rats of all time. The unforgettable cast of supporting characters includes the stalwart badger Constance, an irrepressible hare named Basil Stag Hare, and the elderly wisemouse Brother Methuselah.
But most of all there is Matthias, seeking his true destiny in a journey that will lead through danger and despair to true wisdom.
Don't miss any of Brian Jacques' Redwall series.

"This epic adventure contains elements of all grand quests, with heroic archetypes that will keep fans of Tolkien and King Arthur tales engaged to the final battle." (Publishers Weekly)
If you are a fan of mouse guard this book is perfect for you. Filled with action and adventure, this tale of heroes, heroines and a great villain and his army.
This unabridged reading of Redwall is almost a full radio drama! It is wonderfully done with different voices for different characters. It was a very enjoyable listen.
Redwall was the first real novel I read aloud to my son and was the book that convinced him reading was worth the effort. This production has incredible detail for the listener and would make a perfect Eads along companion to anyone who may feel daunted by the novel alone.
Redwall is a sweeping epic of bravery and courage, of friendship and compassion, of teamwork and the power of good over evil. I have recommended it many times as a novel and most enthusiastically recommend this audio book. Brilliant!
When I first started reading this book in paperback I absolutely despised it. The storyline seemed cute and promising but the detail and overall lack of excitement was causing me to fall asleep every time I read it. But I had to read it for school... My solution Audible! The voices matched to the characters exactly how I pictured and made the story far more enjoyable then I could have imagined! Now I would recommend it if you want a cute charming escape to a world of furry animals and long tailed villains.
I loved it! It was long but thoroughly enjoyable. The narration was great and did not sound monotone. The full cast was also excellent and made the story more engaging.
the voice of clooney was the most obnoxiously loud and annoying thing about this book. everyone else has somewhat loud voices which fit the book's story but his...needless to say try to turn your volume down when he speaks.
This first written novel in the series is a real treasure. Though I may not find it to be the best in the series, it's by far worth the listen.. once or even many times over. After all, a hot meal, friends and good stories can always be found at Redwall Abbey. Come and join in any time. The door is always open to you, my friends.
"Hooked from the start"
This was the first Redwall book (by Brian Jacques) that I ever listened to and I love it as much now as I did all those years ago. I'm thrilled that it's on audible as my tape copy died a long time ago from over use. A truly wonderful story that readers of all ages can listen to over and over again.
"Strong accents but lack of sincerity"
Plot-line is engaging, but unconvincing narration. It lacks sincerity.
Animals as characters, but anthromorphism doesn't seem right for this story.
WIth my 9 year old daughter, perhaps
Maybe after I finished the series.
I loved the funny voices for some characters and the accent of the author.
"brilliant story well told"
a brilliantly crafted and narrated story not just for kids discriptive and exiting story
one for all the family
"A very good story for older kids."
The story was very well performed, a good cast of clear but varied and interesting voices and voice actors. The story seemed very much that of a fantasy war story but aimed at kids, while this is not bad, I was a little suprised having not looked fully into it before purchasing.
It was, however, still a very fun story and as said before, well performed.
