Difficult to understand the accents

The story is OK, but for an American listener the accents of some of the characters are so strong that it is difficult to understand them. This is not really conveyed in the excerpt that you can listen to. Also, the abundant songs that are mixed in with the story detract from it quite a bit in my opinion.

Adventure Unlimited

Brian Jacques once again transports us to the magical country of Mossflower and Redwall Abbey, with it's brave and wise beasts, and evil, marauding vermin. The story of Lonnar Boldstripe and his quest for revenge is interwoven with the quest of Briggoon and Sarabando to find a cure for the paralysed haremaid Martha. The two stories mesh togother nicely and the ending is both happy and bittersweet. The production values on the audio are first class, with a large cast investing the characters with individual voices and personalities.

Although this is ostensibly a book series for children, much of the action would be a little too violent for the young ones and could cause nightmares. It is one of the best audio interpetations I have ever listened to, no surprise, give the author's background in radio, and his involvement in the project as both narrator and executive producer. Well worth acquiring, whether you are a long time fan of the Redwall series or a first time listener.
