4.0 out of 5 stars Not as strong but worthwile for fans of the series
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...

1.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing, overlong and dull
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...

This review is from: Voyage of Slaves (Paperback)
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing, overlong and dull, 15 Oct 2008
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.
