Product Description

About the Author

A BBC presenter, a playwright and an actor, Brian Jacques was first brought to the attention of children with the publication of Redwall, the first volume in his bestselling series, which features creatures from the medieval red-stoned abbey of Mossflower Wood.

Before he began writing for children, his life was as full of adventures as the stories he creates – at the age of fifteen he went to sea and travelled the world, before returning to Liverpool, where he still lives.

I quite enjoyed this book, having read the previous two in the series. The pleasure of reading Jacques lies not so much in the excitement of the plot but the communication of the different settings, characters, and interactions that colour his work in this series, as well as Redwall and others. In this way, this particular novel, although undoubtedly as his other works childish to say the least, holds the same natural appeal to all ages that make all of his works charming to read and light our hearts a bit.

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Ms. J. Woods on 15 Oct 2008
Format: Hardcover
This is the third book in the series focusing on the adventures of the immortal Ben and his dog Ned, and by far the worst. The plot is overlong and boring, the action scenes seem stilted. Most of the characters are annoying stereotypes, and while Ned is always good value, even his banter can't help the pace of the book. It has none of the urgency which so charachterised the adventures in the latter half of the first book, and none of the mystery that aided the second.
A book for die-hards only, and even they should beware. Newcomers should look instead for Castaways, it really is much better.

Rolicking adventure balanced with surprising emotion 3 Aug 2008
By Emily J. Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I actually prefer this series to Redwall.

I also think this is the best Flying Dutchman book so far; while the prior two books did indeed contain marvelous swashbuckling adventures, this one had an emotional impact I did not expect. It's as if the situation of Ben and Ned and their imortality suddenly becomes something truly tragic and terrible and I appreciate Mr. Jacques for making that so clear.

However, this is not to say that this book does not also have a great adventure. The aforementioned emotional impact also includes an intriguing and horrible slave trade operation that brings out some of Jacques' most villianous of villains. Always good for a juicy read.

As always, the plot flows quick and thrilling, with Jacques' precise descriptions that do not detract from the story's pace.

This is another example of Jacques' marvelous ability to tell adventures

YES to a Wonderous Adventure for any age. 7 Jun 2013
By C. S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Yes, yes, yes. This book is awesome. I am 70 years old and I loved this book along with Castaways of the Flying Dutchman. Adventure galore with great characters throughout. You can not read these stories and not feel several differnet kinds of emotions through out the book. I have not read the first book of the series but since the stories are so wonderful I will go back and read it. The second book explains things well enough that you don't need to read the first. I will also save these books for my grandson to read when he is ready for an adventure. There is NOT a boring moment in these stories. I understand there was suppose to be a final book in the series but the author has passed away so there never was another written. It would have been nice to know if Ned and Ben had the curse lifted? My vote would be YES! I highly recommend this series.
