The mice of Redwall Abbey have devoted their life to peace, kindness and healing. But when they face a threat from Cluny , a rat warlord, there comes a time when they must fight once more. Matthias, a young mouse, must set out on a quest to find an ancient sword, one that hasn’t been seen in thousands of years.
Reading this book was torture for my mind. Certainly not as much as Animal Farm was, but it was sloooowwww. Even the battles and parts where it should have been interesting just didn’t hold my attention. Maybe that’s the type of book some people like to read, but not me.
One good thing I can say about this book was that it was short. If it had been any longer I might have downright refused to read it (I was reading it for book club). As it was, it was hard to get through. There were some good things though. Different types of animals in the book spoke with different dialects, which I thought showed how diverse they were.
This just wasn’t my type of book. If you like slow-paced books about animals, by all means read it, but I don’t think I would recommend it to anyone.
