All thats missing is Brian Jaques

I love this series and have read the books since I was young. One of the things that I loved about the audiobooks was the Brain Jaques read the stories himself. For some reason he isn't the narrator of this book. If you've listened to other books in this series you'll recognize most of the same actors. Still a wonderful story and well done. I just missed the voice of Brian Jaques

We love Brian Jacques

If you haven't listened to a Brian Jacques Redwall book, you're missing out. A full cast brings to life a wide variety of characters, and the classic good vs evil epic stories are enthralling. My three kids (12yo boy, 8yo girl, and 6yo boy) love the Redwall series as do my husband and I. With so many books in a series, with the same type of characters and the classic good vs evil theme, you'd think that the books would all start to sound the same, but they're all different, there are still surprises, and the characters still delight (and disgust). My one warning is that these are violent books, characters fight and die (good and evil), might not be a great choice for some younger ears.

AWESOME

I originally purchased this book for our son to read because he had read one of the other Redwall books. Being an avid reader, I decided to listen too! Wow! I couldn't stop and before I knew it I had finished the book ahead of him! The full cast truly brings the book to "life" as if its a movie!

Excellent book, but...

Would you listen to Salamandastron again? Why?

Brian Jacques works are ones I find myself returning to again and again. I always enjoy the audiobook versions of his books as they are like listening to a radio play version with all the different actors.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Salamandastron?

Too many to count!

What about Full Cast’s performance did you like?

I loved each and every moment. Utilizing a full cast allows for a greater depth of listening entertainment. I do prefer the titles that are narrated by Brian Jacques himself, and that is the one thing I was missing from this particular title. Still quality work though!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely! But who has time for that?

No disappointment!

I read some reviews that the book was disappointing because the author didn’t narrate. Although it was odd at first, the full cast and variety of voices, the singing and music, and the clever and engaging story had me hooked just like all the other books. I especially like baby dumble and the hares.
Terribly entertaining and I can’t wait to hear the next in line. I wish I read these with my son when he was reading them.

Salamandastron

Bloody. Epic. Good.

A siege of a mountain, going badly for the defenders.
A quest to save the abbey from the plague.
A journey to recover a lost legendary sword.
And a young girl's journey to find her place in the world.

10/10 top show laddie bucks

No word can say how amazing these books are

There was funny moments, great moments, even 1 or 2 sad or upsetting, but their was never a character that sounds as deceiving as forogo, also at 1:58:16, it reminded me to brush my teeth, haha, forogo said “you should have used a twig to clean those teeth” when the one being threatened with “ungratefulness” didn’t like the stale bread, then again who would, but I would say, these books are amazing, I am definitely enjoying these stories of redwall and Martin the warrior. Great all the same, and I can say, all the redwall books definitely are the best.

good story

a good story with some interesting twists.
the cast did a great job being the story to life.
I did find it odd that samkin, who was an archer, really didn't use his bow and arrows to fight with.
highly recommend for teen and adults, and other than a few fights, children should like the story.
