Publisher's Summary

As the inhabitants of Redwall Abbey bask in the glorious Summer of the Late Rose, all is quiet and peaceful. But things are not as they seem. Cluny the Scourge, the evil one-eyed rat warlord, is hell-bent on destroying the abbey's tranquility as he prepares to fight a bloody battle for the ownership of Redwall.

This dazzling story in the Redwall series is packed with wit, wisdom, humor, and blood-curdling adventure, but has the added bonus of taking the listener to the heart and soul of Redwall Abbey and the characters who live there.

    "Very good narration, but author's version better"

    Redwall is a great series, and this first book is something our whole family enjoys. I won't go into detail about the story but save my comments for the audio. Stuart Blinder offers up a very good version at a good price. I have listened to the version narrated by the author in its entirety, and it is better, but it's also quite a bit more expensive. Stuart Blinder's version is also a bit easier to understand for those not used to the author's more pronounced local accent (which I find charming). Brian Jacques's "Cluny" voice is far better than Stuart Blinder's, and if you can splurge, go for that version.

    "Great Stuff"

    Classic story of good over evil, but told in such an entertaining fashion that you just have to smile and cheer: REDWALL! Having said that I have to say that the narrator was not up to par, he takes a great story and makes it boring. I prefer the way Brian Jacques narrates.

    If you like evil villains, noble warriors, hilarious accents, and lots of food this is the book for you. (but maybe not the narrator?)

    Story
    "A Children's Classic to be enjoyed by everyone!"
    If you could sum up Redwall in three words, what would they be?

    Delightfully entertaining journey


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course it has to be Mathias.... my new hero


    What three words best describe Stuart Blinder’s performance?

    I enjoyed the narration just fine. Since I purchased this rendition, it has come to my attention there is another which is full cast. I have never listened to a full cast narration before, but to continue the series that is the only option. I much prefer journeying through a series, with the same narrator for all books. It is because of that, I probably would have purchased the full cast edition, had I known of it.


    Any additional comments?

    I was not aware of this series until a teen told me of it very recently. It is a great discovery and plan on introducing my grandchildren to the wonderful world that is Redwall.

    "Missing Magic"

    I'm an old goat who loves kid's stuff...like Harry
    Potter, Lord of the Rings, books where the writer's
    pen becomes, itself, a magic wand, capable of transporting even an old man like me, into a new
    and brilliant creation.
    This is not one of those books. There is no magic
    flowing from the author's word processor. It wasn't poor narration, bad plotting, or grating
    style that caused me to stop listening after
    several chapters. Pure and simple, this book
    must be for very little children at the Peter
    Rabbit level of comprehension or it was just
    too, too trite. I don't know how an adult could
    read it for his or her own pleasure. Reading it
    as a bedtime story to a 6 year old, yes. Except
    that there's maybe more violence than a 6 year
    old needs to be exposed to.

    "Ho-hum"

    This is a very stock children's tale, with recycled characters and events. Reading this would be preferable to poking one's eye out with a stick if it were a rainy day and the kids had absolutely nothing better to do.

    AUDIO: Blinder is pretty overblown and florid.

    "Couldn't finish this one"

    I thought this would be a delightful read along the lines of Watership Down, or other children's fantasies, but I just couldn't get into it at all. Didn't even finish part 1. Maybe a younger listener would enjoy it more.
