Not What You Think
I remember as a kid watching the animated TV show based on this book, and I loved it. So, being a kid, I whined and whined until my mother dragged herself down to the library and bought it for me. It's been over 5 years and I still haven't finished it. I'm on maybe page 20? This book is just plain boring. Not the plot, but the way it's written. I'm sure the story probably gets more interesting as you go along, but honestly, I have no intentions of ever finishing it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

For ages 13 and below ONLY... (Seriously)
First of all, I must confess, this was my favorite book series when I was in 6th-7th grade but as I grew older and remember pulling out this book and reading through it. I'm like, my gosh I can't believe I read this stuff, and I nimbly placed it back on the shelf. What my problem is is that younger boys and girls give this series WAY to much hype. I did when I was their age. But when you mature, you realize what really makes an excellent series and not what the world of animals wielding swords and shouting discrepant battlecries are like, amass in books like these. Secondly, these books have NO plot at all, and are so basic it is quite sickening if you discern its true worth. Another big conical things in this book and other books alike, the maps consistantly change novel after novel. I have ten books by Brian Jacques and I've personally have seen this fact and I urge other fans to do the same. Just look and study the maps one by one and you'll see that I am right. I must profess, Brian Jacques has an elaborate way of luring in young boys and girls to his series, I must give him that. But when you get older you must realize that there are far better novels that put Redwall to shame. This is why my headline says ages 13 and below... ONLY... so please, heed this review and your eyes will be open. I am completely supportive of you kids under 13 but anyone who is 14 and over, you need to set this series down and broaden your literature. Here is a list of books I recommend: (In novels I've enjoyed)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
