Publisher's Summary

Author of the beloved Redwall series, Brian Jacques is one of the most popular fantasy authors in the world, with over 40 million books in print. This New York Times best seller will impress listeners with its original twist on the legend of the ghost ship, the Flying Dutchman.

The Flying Dutchman is cursed to sail the seven seas for all eternity without rest. The two innocent castaways, a young mute boy named Neb and his dog, Denmark, are washed overboard from the hoary yacht and end up on the seashore of a cozy, yet endangered English village. With the help of the townsfolk, Neb and Denmark solve riddles and search for the buried secrets that can save the village and its people.

A brilliant departure from the Redwall series, this novel will undoubtedly satisfy longtime Jacques fans and newcomers alike.

Fans of Redwall... *some spoilers*

If you liked the Redwall series, by Brian Jacques, you should enjoy this adventure of a boy and his dog.

Neb and Den on the high seas, their fateful voyage, and the blessing gifted to them despite the curse on those Ben and Ned once knew.

I loved this series years ago and it is still enjoyable today. The author narrating with a cast of others makes it even more enjoyable. Though it is a children’s book, all ages can enjoy it. If you have yet to read other books by the author Redwall is another great book to read.

One of my favorites

Brian Jacques is one of those authors that I grew up reading, and no matter how many times I read or listen to his books, I always find something new to appreciate and enjoy. This story is one of my favorites, and I don't know how many times I've entered into the world of Castaways but I continue to love every second of these stories.

great story trash narrator

the narrators French accent is loud, harsh, annoying and trash. it ruined the whole performance I'll be partly asleep and boom that awful accent wakes me.

One of my all time favorites

My only issue with the book was with the recording studio, as the audio occasionally drops to nearly a whisper and then a minute later picks back up. But still a fantastic story with a stellar cast

Are you ready for adventure?

I've always enjoyed Brian Jacques due to reading Redwall as a kid. Castaways of the Flying Dutchman does not disappoint. Brian leading the was as the narrator and top notch voice actors carry Ben and his dog Ned through a beautiful tale of adventure from start to end. This will make you want to travel the world with a dog by your side.

So -so

I've enjoyed quite a few Redwall books with my children, but guess i was hoping this would be for a bit more mature audience (they are teens now), but we were all disappointed. It was the same style of story with very good people on one side, very bad on the other and not much in between... Maybe just a too simplistic. Narration was pretty good.
