Brian Jacques' tales of courageous heroes and deliciously hateful villains have captivated countless readers.

Fantastic listening

My children (ages 8 and 11) and I are veterans of children's audiobooks, and we have truly enjoyed the first three books of this series. It has the right mix of adventure, fun and swashbuckling to keep their interest high throughout. We will hold Mossflower near and dear to our hearts as the introduction to this wonderful world of stories.

A GREAT story.

I've read these books before, but listening to them is a whole new adventure! I love the voices, they really animate everything. I adore these stories and will continue to download them and enjoy every bit of listening to them.

Doesn't disappoint

Mossflower, like the rest of the Redwall books, is a fun story to listen to. You might enjoy it as much as your children.

Wildly varying recorded levels!

What did you love best about Mossflower?

The story and characters (as throughout the Redwall series) are wonderful, and the performers are topnotch.

What did you like best about this story?

It has satisfying ups and downs and a satisfying conclusion. I also like the combination of realism and humor Jacques includes in his books.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Multiple narrators: all excellent,

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Dunno, and I hate taglines for films anyway. Perhaps, "Never underestimate the Woodlanders!"

Any additional comments?

Yes, one BIG one: the recorded levels throughout the production are extreme, to say the least. I was always diving for the volume control because I either a) couldn't hear what was being said, or b) was wincing because of the extreme loudness. Certain characters were worse in this regard than others, such as always too soft or always too loud and shrill--Tsarmina, especially--but even the narrator, who you'd think would be at a consistent level throughout the production, was at times near-inaudible and at others louder than was comfortable (more diving for the volume control!). I hate to be so blunt, but it's a rather poor production, technically speaking. The first book in the series was not like this, and I'm hoping that the 3rd book in the series is more like that one, that is, with recorded levels more consistent throughout.

Great story,

Any additional comments?

The story was as wonderful as all of the Redwall books, Unfortunately, the "enhancements" took a lot away from fully enjoying the experience. Several times a speaker would be so quiet as to be barely audible, but then music would come crashing in much too loudly.

More books should be done with a cast!

Any additional comments?

This is the second book in the RedWall series. I enjoyed the first one so much that I purchased all that audible had. The cast and Author Brian Jacques work seamlessly and continue to provide a great performance. Great stories for children and adults alike.

I found this difficult to listen to

Would you try another book from Brian Jacques and/or Brian Jacques and Full Cast ?

Yes, but only because I already purchased

What aspect of Brian Jacques and Full Cast ’s performance would you have changed?

I listen to books while driving. With this book, I found myself constantly adjusting the volume...they would be speaking very quietly and the next minute YELLING to the point that I would be quite startled. I realize they are acting but the extreme volume fluctuations made this tedious to listen to.

Any additional comments?

This was a nice book, but it would not make it to a 4 star (one of my favorites that I would enthusiastically recommend to everyone) of a 5 star (a classic, life changing book that that would make it to my Top 100 list). Although less dark, it reminded me of Lord of the Rings,
