Castaways of The Flying Dutchman
« on: May 20, 2016, 08:11:59 AM »

Finished the first book recently! It was quite different in style to Redwall, but I still loved it. Could have been changed for the better I think, though. It was very captivating, particularly the first parts. Finished it in a day or two.

As odd as many may think it, I've always preferred this series over the redwall series. I understand myself to be vastly in the minority.  ;)

Same. I don't know why, and they're very close for me, but Castaways has something that makes me like it more.

I like them about even. The one thing Redwall has over this series is that it's got more books. Castaways is just fun all around and unique. I don't think I've ever read a series quite like Castaways.

I wish Mr. Jacques let Steven Spielberg make a movie on this series. I understand why he turned down the offer... But I would've loved to see a movie adaption!

This book was very good. Quite different from what I had expected.

I've read The Angel's Command, but haven't come across any more in the series.
