Did any one ever read any of Brian Jaques famous series: Redwall?

If so does anyone else enjoy them as much as I do? I know they are meant for kids/teens, but I still find my self enjoying them, as they do kind of have an adult like air to them.

I love Jaques writing style.

MY favorite parts of any of his books are when Rats/Stoats/Weasels/Corsairs/Foxes/WildCat's have inner conflict and betrayal, all for greed and power. I find his writing to be enjoyable to this day, and have read most of the red wall books.

Dibbuns!

I liked the one with Brocktree in it....not sure what it was called.

Oh, 40 Internetz for anyone that knows what D.A.B. In the series stood for.

One of the best.

Did you read Martin the Warrior?

I learned a few important lessons from Redwall books...

1. If you are a horde leader, captain of a ship, or just some evil pillaging dude in general, make sure you leave NO, and I mean, NO survivors WHATSOEVER!!! And, if you meet some big freaking bad@$$ warrior whatever, make sure you kill him/her, and don't just leave them for dead.

2. Anything with the Bloodwrath rapes in battle. Badgers rape in general.

3. Sticks, rocks, and water are weapons of mass destruction.

4. The minion/brother/friend that tries to butter you up, is really gonna try to betray you, and become leader.

If 90% of the Redwall main enemies knew this, they would have lived significantly longer.

I haven't read a Redwall book in forever, probably not since middle school or freshman year. It's one of the better fictional universes out there. I might have to reread the main books after I finish the latest A Song of Ice and Fire book.

I read a whole bunch when I was 11-15
Pretty much my introduction to Fantasy literature..

Good stuff.. I like the Hares, badgers and squirrels

Hares and squirrels are my favorite too. Mice kind of bore me and are too peaceful. The scenes at the abbey can bore me sometimes. I always love the inner conflict from the corsairs, and vermin.
