Don't miss any of Brian Jacques' Redwall series.

"The medieval world of Redwall Abbey - where gallant mouse warriors triumph over evil invaders - has truly become the stuff of legend." (Seattle Post-Intelligencer)
This is more audio drama than just reading of a book. Multiple actors and voices led even more interest to an already well written story. Although a "kids book", our whole family (including teenage boys) enjoyed this as we traveled.
I like Star Wars, Foundation series, Redwall Series, Bloody Jack series, and westerns for fiction. In nonfiction, I like books about Catholic theology, American history and government, and economics.
The Long Patrol was a fun story to listen to. It has a cast reading the various speaking roles as well as being narrated by the author. It was one of the better books I have listened to recently.
For long-time Redwall fans, this story involved characters from all areas of Mossflower: Hares, otters, shrews, Badgers, and Redwallers. It was a story of coming of age for the main character. It had adventure, celebrations, and the bad guys were really bad but buffoonish. It was later than Redwall in Redwall's timeline, but it had some aspects that went back to the Mossflower story, which was fun because it recalled that book for me.
This is about the 7th Brian Jacque's performance I have listened to. They are all good, and this one was as well.
The Long Patrol: A Coming of Age for a Young Hare
The Redwall books are clever. They are written in a style that is reminiscent of Tolkien, with virtuous heroes, clumsy villains, poems and songs.
