Publisher's Summary

When Redwall was published in 1987 it catapulted author Brian Jacques to international stardom. And small wonder! This enthralling tale is jam-packed with the things we long for in a great adventure: danger, laughter, hairbreadth escapes, tragedy, mystery, a touch of wonder, a truly despicable villain, and a hero we can take to heart.

That hero is Matthias, a young mouse who must rise above his fears and failures to save his friends at Redwall Abbey. The villain is Cluny the Scourge, one of the most deliciously despicable rats of all time. The unforgettable cast of supporting characters includes the stalwart badger Constance, an irrepressible hare named Basil Stag Hare, and the elderly wisemouse Brother Methuselah.

But most of all there is Matthias, seeking his true destiny in a journey that will lead through danger and despair to true wisdom.

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

    "Good, but had potential to be much better"

    The story was good - although I wish it had had more flavor. There seemed to be a constant use of deus ex machina and coincidence, which made the story bland to me. My biggest issue was that it was hard to understand. The narrator spoke very quickly and his thick accent lacked enunciation. When I slowed it down, the characters just sounded drunk. Additionally, the volume wasn't well balanced. Whenever Clooney spoke, I had to drastically drop the volume for fear of blowing my car speakers. But then, when other characters would speak, I'd have to turn my volume to the max.

    "Wonderful Production"

    This unabridged reading of Redwall is almost a full radio drama! It is wonderfully done with different voices for different characters. It was a very enjoyable listen.

    "Redwall!"

    Redwall was the first real novel I read aloud to my son and was the book that convinced him reading was worth the effort. This production has incredible detail for the listener and would make a perfect Eads along companion to anyone who may feel daunted by the novel alone.
    Redwall is a sweeping epic of bravery and courage, of friendship and compassion, of teamwork and the power of good over evil. I have recommended it many times as a novel and most enthusiastically recommend this audio book. Brilliant!

    "Excellent for adults and children!"

    The voice acting was awesome. It's really added to the story to have multiple actors. The story itself was a bit childish but didn't pull punches either.

    Story
    "From falling asleep to falling right into place"

    When I first started reading this book in paperback I absolutely despised it. The storyline seemed cute and promising but the detail and overall lack of excitement was causing me to fall asleep every time I read it. But I had to read it for school... My solution Audible! The voices matched to the characters exactly how I pictured and made the story far more enjoyable then I could have imagined! Now I would recommend it if you want a cute charming escape to a world of furry animals and long tailed villains.

    "Hooked from the start"

    This was the first Redwall book (by Brian Jacques) that I ever listened to and I love it as much now as I did all those years ago. I'm thrilled that it's on audible as my tape copy died a long time ago from over use. A truly wonderful story that readers of all ages can listen to over and over again.

    No


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    WIth my 9 year old daughter, perhaps

    Story
    "A very good story for older kids."

    The story was very well performed, a good cast of clear but varied and interesting voices and voice actors. The story seemed very much that of a fantasy war story but aimed at kids, while this is not bad, I was a little suprised having not looked fully into it before purchasing.
    It was, however, still a very fun story and as said before, well performed.
