Amazon Review

As young Tammo dreams of joining the Long patrol--the legendary army of fighting hares which serves the Lady Cregga Rose Eyes, Ruler of Salamandastron--the brutal reality of a battle with Damug Warfang's mighty battalion of savage Rapscallions fast approaches.

Brian Jacques has proved time and time again that he has the ability to grab his readers by the throat and transport them into a world of fantasy and adventure that many writers of adult books would love to emulate. The Long Patrol, A Tale of Redwall, certainly proves the point yet again, but distinguishes itself by being perhaps the very best of all the Redwall books so far. Relying less and less on the old, familiar Redwall characters and more and more on the ingenuity and passion of younger blood, The Long Patrol will certainly win Jacques a fresh following while continuing to delight his existing army of fans. (9 years and over) --Susan Harrison --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great novel 23 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This is the book where everything comes together if you've read the whole series. The castle Kotir is mentioned along with the warriors of the earlier books. You finally find out what happened to that castle because if you look at the maps Redwall takes the place of Kotir. Other than that all through the book you hope Tammo succeeds on his mission, but you knew the whole time that he'd get the girl.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Long Patrol 20 Feb 2003
The Long Patrol
The book I am reviewing is called The Long Patrol. It is about the fighting hares that serve Lady Cregga rose eyes ruler of Salamandastron.
The main characters would be the courageous young hare Tammo who wants to join the long patrol, Dammug Warfang firstblade of all Rapscallians. (Killed by Cregga rose eyes.)
The Rapscallians try to take over the abbey of Reddwall.The warriors from the abbey and Salamandastron join together and defeat the Rapscallians.
I enjoyed this book because it was full of adventure and war.
My favourite character was Arven the Abbey warrior holding the sword of Martin the warrior.
I don’t think there are any bad points. I would give it 9-10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good read 26 Oct 2000
By A Customer
I read this novel expecting it to be one of the less impressive Redwall stories, but I now rank it as one of my favourites! You could be forgiven for thinking this was one of Jacques' first creations. The story is full of action and adventure as well as putting Redwall into a historical context. I particularly admire Jacques' portayal of the battle, which for once seemed realistic to me.

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked it..... 7 Aug 1999
By A Customer
The book had charcter, stronger than any other of Jacques's novels. However the story soon became somewhat predictable with time, but there were a few surprises and interesting turns. Overall I enjoyed it, and would encourage a Brian Jacques fan to read this latest installment. Well worth the money, but not quite full marks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brian Jacques does it again! 23 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
Even better than the book!! Brian Jacques uses his impressive range of voices to bring all the characters to life! The only porblem is that some minor bits are abridged to save space, and sometimes this sort of dampens the atmosphere of the novel. But overall, a REALLY GREAT audio book! Why wasn't this made into a movie?

5.0 out of 5 stars Brian Jacques is a great writer. 2 Feb 2012
I bought this book (and a few others Redwall books) for my youngest daughter. However, we've all read them and love them. They are exciting, and very well written. I recommend these books for all ages.
