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.

Critic Reviews

A Good and Fun Story

A fun story of the defense of Redwall. The full cast added depth to the story telling that really helped with the action of the story. The narrator, also the author, was very exciting to listen to. AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY

Lose the best part of the book

The way this book is dramatized destroys the best part of Redwall. It makes it a blood thirsty medieval tale, emphasizing only the blood and gore rather than the intricate plot line, intelligent creatures and growth of the characters. Methuselah for example is portrayed as a doddering old fool rather than a wise mentor, Cluny as a big thug rather than cunning evil etc. Thoroughly disappointed. As a book, Redwall gets six stars. This audio is so awful I can't even give the story 5 stars and it's the same words!!

Wonderful

Fantastic listen. Narrator and character cast were wonderful and brought so much life to the book. Story was endlessly interesting and never made me wish it would hurry up. No fat. All relevant.

Fun and exciting adventure with woodland creatures

A friend had brought the Redwall series to my attention and saw it on sale for a few bucks. Told myself why not and I was not disappointed. It is a very fun and excitedly little dive into the world of Redwall Abbey and the adventures the furry characters get into.
