The late Brian Jacques was a wonderful story teller!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Long Patrol (Redwall) (Paperback)
His exciting tales of Redwall have been enjoyed by millions of chidren of all ages. I am now 60 years old and love all his characters from the warrior mice to the wonderfully gregarious hares. Sure! the heroes always win through in the end, but what they have to endure, en route to the final victory leaves you mentally exhausted and chewing your nails down to the elbows! The variety of animals who make up the 'goodies' (or Redwallers), means that their ability to deal with the diverse threats from the 'baddies', is unbeatable - in the end, anyway!
Brian Jacques books are quite simply fantastic escapism. So much more than all todays plethora of electronic gadgets put together. He will be sadly missed.
