Publisher's Summary

In this stirring, sword-rattling chapter in New York Times best-selling author Brian Jacques' beloved series, questions of right and wrong do not have simple answers. Abandoned by his evil warlord father Swartt Sixclaw, the ferret Veil is raised at Redwall. But when he commits an unforgivable crime, he is banished forever. So when Swartt goes on a rampage, Veil must make a choice. He can either fight for the father who orphaned him, or for those who turned him away.

Uneven, but still enjoyable

Like the its source material, the audiobook of "Outcast of Redwall" is very uneven. The original book suffers from being so drawn out, overcrowded (even by RW standards) and literally all over the place.But it's still a fun, exciting story with likable, memorable characters and actions scenes that feel like Lord of the Rings with animals.
Some performers are better to listen to than others. For example, Bryony & Sunflash sound real good while while Swartt varies from scene to scene and Veil is clearly voiced by someone too old (trying too hard to sound young) who misses the mark a lot, sounding better as a bad guy than when he's supposed to be good/sympathetic.
But the real fun is in the songs. Adapting the verses from the book could've been a drag, but having them fully orchestrated and sung often made them a hoot, especially when there's a chorus. First time I ever experienced a musical audiobook!
So while not the exactly the best audiobook in the Tales of Redwall, it can certainly be quite entertaining.

Great one

This is one of the better Redwall books. It breaks from the traditional, puzzel being solved at redwall, while a hero goes on a quest way to young and co.es back a hero that Brian did for several others. Great book overall.

A Spectacular Must Read Adventure!!

What made the experience of listening to Outcast of Redwall the most enjoyable?

The fact that the story is narrated by the Author and his associates makes this audiobook one of the most enjoyable I've ever heard! Tie that in with a fantastic story and acting along with songs and poems makes this audiobook a must for any reader!

What did you like best about this story?

This story is the one that got me to enjoy reading in the first place! Until I read this book, I hated reading, the normal predictable plots of children's books left a sour taste in my mouth. When I was assigned this book by a teacher, I looked at how thick it was and absolutely dreaded reading it; however, once I actually started reading it I was swept into an epic of daring adventure, endearing characters, great battles, great humor, and sorrowful events, making it the first book that made my heart cheer and cry and laugh and leap. The tale of Sunflash the Mace and his faithful kestrel companion Skarlath is one that I would ever wish to share with those around me, both young and old alike!

Another winner

If you are a fan of B Jacques, you won’t be disappointed. The characters are similar to many of the other tales but there are a few new plot twists. You will hear a lot of music in this version as well.

Good story, okay acting

Not a fan of some of the actors' choice of voices, but others were excellent. The story was certainly not what I was expecting based on the title or the summary, but it was still a great book.

Good story, terribly told

This was one of my favorite books as a child, and it was absolutely ruined by the narration. The songs are sung horribly, of sync, and overpowered by the instruments, so that you can barely understand the words. The voice actor who plays Skarlath LITERALLY screams and caws into the microphone to simulate Skarlath's calls. Sunflash, who is supposed to be a young Badger Lord, is voiced by what sounds like a 40-year old. The voice of Swart does nothing but scream and yell. Much of the time you have no idea what is being said, because these voice actors turn the rustic West-English accents up to 11. The only good performance is the narration by Brian Jacques. He, at least, can be understood and doesn't scream and yell all the time. I had to stop listening to this at different points, but I ended up finishing it because it just seemed like a waste of money leave it alone. But I wanted to. I really, really wanted to. It is such a shame that the first book, Redwall, was narrated by an actually decent voice actor, who just told the story straight up without all the screaming and yelling and carrying on. All the other Redwall books on Audible have this same cast and, consequently, I won't be purchasing anymore. These stories are amazing, but I simply can't stand the voice acting. It's absolutely horrible. Do not buy this.

Good but not my favorite

My least favorite of the series. Despite being titled "Outcast of Redwall" Veil is a minor character that seemed more of a means to and end than anything else while the story mainly focused on his father and Sunflash. All this book did was show how ugly and prejudiced Redwallers could be as they instantly blame the ferret for anything that went missing or went wrong at the abbey. This could have been the idea behind the story but I digress as I have no proof either way. Outside of that, the cast did a good job on the performance and i would recommend this audiobook to fans of the series but not as an introduction to the series for a new listener/reader.

disappointing story line

I liked the performers, they brought the story to life. I thought the music was a bit annoying, but that's a personal opinion base on how I like my book, not because the music it's self was bad. The story line of the badger was great, overcoming to become a protector!!! However, the story of the ferret was a bad example. Someone growing up with love but still being bad, especially that bad, I don't think a one off deserves to be in a book. While it could happen, I don't like my kids hearing about it. I would not recommend this book for teens or children, which is unfortunate, as I thought Sunflash was the best character of all the Redwall books I have heard so far.
