I read the Deptford Mice Trilogy and was about to pass it along to some young friends of mine when I learned of the Deptford Histories and began acquiring the three volumes. Now that I've read the Histories, I've revised my plans for passing along the six volumes. The author's prose is increasingly full of British vocabulary and his sentence structure has grown increasingly complicated. I have an M. A. in English, but I am not a Brit. I had to consult my Oxford English Dictionary a number of times as the words were not listed in my American college dictionary. I believe many young adult/independent readers would be put off by the prose, and have therefore decided to pass my copies to an adult friend who likes the Redwall series.Was this review helpful?
