An Excellent Tale and Production

A wonderful telling of a classic tale of adventure and food. Redwall books are oft filled with adventures, battles, food, songs, and moments of peace. Mariel of Redwall is no exception to this and is a joy from start to finish.

The production brings this book to life in a wonderful way I was not expecting. All the characters are given rich voices that fit them. Even the songs within the book are sang and accompanied by instruments.

mastery of the stock characters

of all the books in the redwall series, this one has the best selection of characters, villians, heroes and sidekicks. the story itself is not as exciting as some of the other titles, but there is still some good action and it is a wonderful excuse to go romping around Moss flower with old friends!

great book; great quality

Great book. We have all of the reading books so far, and now we are working on the audio. The audio is really good. My only recommendation is to go with a 3 or 4 on download. Make it a 4 whenever possible. It is worth it.

Irritating voices

Brian Jaques is a great author and this series is fairly good, but get this one in text. If you listened to the previous novel, Mattimeo, you might remember an otter with an extremely annoying, goofy voice? That voice is back along with a woman with a horrible piercing laugh that is repeated over.... and over.... and over. WOOO-HOO-HOO-HOO-HOO! The music that he has chosen for the beginning of each chapter is repetitive, loud, and irritating also. I really enjoyed the first three books, but this one was weaker. The story felt like bits and pieces of the previous books and all the little annoyances amounted to me refusing to get any more of the series simply to save my aching ears.

Every child should read the Redwall Series.

What made the experience of listening to Mariel of Redwall the most enjoyable?

I have read and followed the Redwall series since I was young. Each book brings you new characters, and old ones too. By reading the series you become part of the characters lives and understand the history behind the magnificent Abbey of Redwall.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the character of Mariel "Gullwacker". She is a fun character, courageous, a good friend and companion, and a role model to all (both young and old).

Which character – as performed by Brian Jacques and a full cast – was your favourite?

There is no one particular character who could be your favourite. Although the hairs and their war cry make it difficult to remember all characters are important.

Any additional comments?

Read the series.
