    Despite the fact that the book is fairly well written and decent

    Despite the fact that the book is fairly well written and decently paced, I found the plot itself to just be predictable and unbelievably boring. This is a clichéd, “coming of age” heroic quest fantasy tale, except the story is populated by mice and other cute, mostly furry animals that just think and act human.
    One of the things that especially annoyed me was that I couldn't figure out the “scale” of the Redwall world. Are they mice and rats living clandestine in a human-built world? If so, where are the humans? Are they human-sized rodents in a people-free world? Then why are the horses and hay-wagons enormous and the churches inhabited by mice? It was never made clear.
    I also dislike the fact that rats, foxes, and weasels were made villains, simply because they were clever, predators in real life, and a whole lot more wicked-looking than mice and squirrels. You never saw a single good rat in the story. How can every creature in a species have an evil predisposition? For similar reasons, I dislike the main protagonist in the story: Matthias is pure, strong, a natural leader, and can never do wrong.
    I finished the book, but crossed off the rest of the series from my reading list.

    Wrong Product Description

    The description to this product says that it is a Hardcover. When I bought this I expected it to be a Hardcover 20th Anniversary edition of Book #1 Redwall. What it truly is is a box that contains a foldout of books 1-3 in paperback. Do not buy this.

    Not what I expected

    The desciption said it was a Hardcover...more like a hard case for three paperbacks inside the case.

    DESERVES 0 STARS

    This book was the worst book I had ever read. Redwall had some (or maybe more) similarities to J.R.R. Tolkien's books. (I wonder why...) The whole mice fighting to keep their kingdom sounds corny in the beginning, and then you read it, it's even cornier as the story progresses. And there's a little romance with Cornflower and Matthias which, in my opinion, is totally unnecessary.

    I'm not too picky but....

    I had heard only great things about this book until I picked it up and started reading it. I truly couldn't believe anyone would want to sit down and read this; I've read some books which I KNOW most people wouldn't like. Most of the time I can see why people would like a book but not this time; I was truly confused. If you want suspense try Garth Nix.

    Stupidest Book ever read

    This book is so stupid! The fact that a MOUSE can even stand on both feet, forget weilding a sword, is just so absurd it ruins the whole book. It's just too much fantasy for one book

    Waist Of Time

    If your over the age of three I would recommend this book is not for you. The book was sooo boring unless you like the original prince in shining armor thing (mathias) and his love laughing at his every move (cornflower.) I mean the story was so predictable. THeres a young kid who wants to be a hero and he does all these heroic things and does become one. The ending was really predictable also.
