One third of a review

A lovely memory from childhood - but I'd have never bought it if I'd realised it were only one third of the book. Splitting an audiobook into three and selling them sep-

great story. could have been read slower

I love the idea of the author narrating but the author had quite a thick scouse accent. that didn't bother me except that certain phrases could have done with being pronounced slower to help us non Scousers keep up! amazing story though

Perfection

I can’t believe I’ve never discovered Redwall before. I can’t wait to read this to my kids. Disappointing that Audible UK doesn’t have all the books though, not even the most popular ones.

Narrator was good, but not the story

I’m quite annoyed that I didn’t read this as a child, because I think my younger self might’ve enjoyed it. As an adult though, I found the entire book a bit trite, full of cliches and tropes, full of weird inconsistencies, and overall it was just a bit boring. I really wanted to like this, but it was not to be. The narrator did a good job though.

Not just narrated by Brian Jacques…

The description says this book is narrated by the author, but it’s more of a production than a reading and some of the characters are voiced by other people. I stopped listening and requested a refund as soon as this happened as I find this sort of thing jarring (literally jumped when a female voice came in!) Really don’t recommend for anyone who is expecting a narration rather than a production.

Gripping story

I loved the imagery that Brian Jacques uses throughout this series, a very colorful story of rousing heroism.

Finishes on a cliff hanger

Excellent, and I love the narrator and cast, but it feels like half a book, rather than a whole one.

pretty good

Some of the narration was a bit hurried and lost clarity of diction at some points, but I wouldn't say it should put someone off listening to it as I still really enjoyed it. I've actually listened to it 3 times!
