    I'm a little fuzzy on all the details but I know I adored this book Mariel Dandin and Mariel's father were all so dear to meInstead of trying to recall details about the book I'm gonna write a little something to Mr Jacues may he rest in peaceDear Brian JacuesI only ever met you once in my lifetime You came to a book signing at Third Place Books in Seattle a long long time ago I remember you saying I love book signings kids waiting in line for you to scribble on their new books Hahaha I've even put that uote up here on Goodreads and 33 people have liked it so farMr Jacues you were a huge influence on my childhood For years I tried and tried to come up with animal stories that would let me feel as thrilled in writing them as I did in reading your stories Ultimately I think I've failed but hey we all can't be as good as you And don't worry I'd never hold that against you You were and always will be one of my favorite authors ever Whenever it is that Lord willing I get married and have children I own most of your books and plan on reading them out loud to my children Your stories will be counted with The Lord of the Rings Trilogy The Hobbit Harry Potter the Little House on the Prairie series and whatever other classic books I may have forgottenIt makes me incredibly sad that you passed away this year Mr Jacues 2011 already feels a little empty without youHonestly I don't know how you were doing with God but I dearly hope I will see you in Heaven I have so much I want to talk to you about I barely knew you but I really do miss you I think I'm always going to cry a little when I read your books or think of your smileYou have done so much for me without meaning to Thank you for brightening my childhood with so many amazing storiesI miss youSincerelyAmy Lind

    This book is at the same time one of the singularly most beautiful stories I have ever read and one of the most original and humorous I can't explain how author Brian Jacues is able to turn out bold mysterious resounding and completely wonderful stories every time he takes pen to page but The Bellmaker easily rivals any of the other classics that he has created The depth and shining beauty of the writing is unsurpassed in all of literature in my opinion; it is romantic and entertaining and fearless while also being tenderly sensitive to bring the powerful emotions behind the complex tale to the forefront for readers who will lose some dear friends along the way while gaining memorable new ones all fashioned in the inimitable style of Brian Jacues that marks him for sure as one of the greatest imaginative writers of our time I could hardly think of another author to challenge him in this regard The story that is The Bellmaker is as multilayered and multifaceted as the best works of Brian Jacues classics such as Redwall and Martin the Warrior What is especially splendid about this novel is how it departs from the normal kind of happenings to this point in the Redwall series surely leaving even the most astute observers of the famed abbey's history guessing as to how things will turn out in the end Personally what stood out to me most of all about The Bellmaker is the searat Blaggut Never to this point in the series had any animal typically classified by residents of Redwall as vermin been seen to have a truly good side yet Brian Jacues was willing to break with that tradition of sorts to show us that every heart is different from those around oneself and one never can tell what someone will do based on the actions of others that are perceived to be like him or her Brian Jacues weaves this compelling and profound thread into the novel with perfect ease and thus has created some of the most thought provoking reading in any of his books The Bellmaker is a uest that will capture the imagination and take hold of the heart almost from page one to page three hundred thirty six surprising and delighting and sobering eager readers along every step on its path I would give it my sincerest and most fervent recommendation

    This was very much enjoyable All the tangled plot was very fun as was the assorted dialects naturally

    Methinks it's time for me to take a break from Redwall for a bit although this means I won't get all of the intra series references in the next bajillion books But there's only so much repetition I can take before I start wondering if I've actually read this one already Otters are scary but lovable check Rats are bad check Badgers are hell on wheels check There will be a sea voyage check There will be a tyrant who is cooked in his own pudding and good riddance check There will be a sadness at Redwall that is overcome by faith insomethingand a kick ass feast checkThe sad part about this particular book is that it does try to break some of its own molds there's a rat who is only bad via company and is actually kind of good at heart There's a mole who speaks without the strange Scottish rumble Jacues has decided moles have which I happen to like actuallyBut even in breaking the norms Jacues reinforces them The rat is good but really only because he's a bit dim even for a searat and he is good but can't truly be part of the community thus continuing to be outside and outcast albeit by his own choice And the mole is continually ragged on by his fellow characters and Jacues as narrator for being over educated and rather stuffy; he has exceeded his station and can be tolerated but must not be fully accepted as who he isAnd it being called The Bellmaker is a little odd considering Joseph is very much a background character I figured it would be about him and where he came from or something as Martin the Warrior or even Mariel of Redwall was But nope it's a dad searching for his warrior daughter who is not interesting but far prevalent than he isThe hares are better in this one though I like the haresSo it took me a long time to read because I just didn't care all that much which is sad because this one had some of the better characters of the last four or so of the series But they just didn't have the plot support Or the room to grow Or enough references to deeper'n'ever pie

    As much as I dislike Mariel of Redwall The Bellmaker the seuel to Mariel is probably one of the better books in the series It has that nice focus that Martin the Warrior had despite its many characters and viewpoints and the typical Irrelevant Redwall Sideplot was made interesting by the inclusion of a “good” vermin BlaggutBlaggut is one of the only vermin characters in the series that is a friend to the Redwallers There are a couple of others but he’s the one that stands out the most to me when I think of good vermin The sideplot involving him and Slipp is interesting and like I mentioned above makes the Redwall portion of the book bearable I also loved the implication that evil must be and will be defeated by good The Redwall series has a great aspect on justice that a lot of other books don’t haveThe only thing that really marred this book for me was perhaps the most obvious example of retconning in the Redwall series; namely Rufe Brush In Mariel of Redwall Rufe was a strong silent older suirrel who was a leader in the battle against Graypatch He hung around with Oak Tom and the “older” Redwallers as opposed to the “younger” ones like Dandin Saxtus and Durry However in this book Rufe suddenly changes into this really timid “young suirrel” who seems younger than Durry Dandin et al rather than older and who seems to have no knowledge of fighting or courage or anything It’s like the two Rufes are two completely different characters I much preferred the Mariel Rufe as this one was way too whiny

    This is a great book and in my opinion can be enjoyed at many levels for all ages I have read every one of Brian Jacues books and am now on the second round of reading them Brian Jacues is sadly no longer with us so no wonderful tales of Redwall In this book Joseph the Bellmaker is visited in a dream by Martin the Warrior He is told to set off and find his missing daughter The book is full of action and adventure and of course a wicked enemy as always No spoilers If you are young at heart do try these delightful books

    Wasn't uite as enthralled with this one as I remembered being but it's a difference of 1 2% Finnbar Galedeep is absolutely one of the best otters in the series This one has a different vibe than a lot of Redwall books I remember but I can't say why; any explanation I give main focus on returning a rightful ruler to the throne much of the action takes place inside an actual castle the tragedy of certain characters' deaths etc are true of other books as well I don't know Maybe it's just the characters Maybe it's just Finnbar I will note that this is the only Redwall book I know of to have an actual villain turns good character arc Granted Blaggus isn't an especially evil villain even at the start; his turn is learning to think and weigh good and bad for himself and choosing what he will ally with IDK I think it's significant Still one of my faves in the series I think

What happened next? Will Mariel Joseph Dandin and Finnbarr Galedeep be able to stop Urgan Nagru and Silvamord? If you want to find out then you should read the book The theme of this story is to always trust and help others In the book all the characters help each other to overcome all challenges Even the antagonists Urgan Nagru and Silvamord work together to battle and capture Castle Floret Mariel Dandin and Bowly Pintips all help each other to battle the rats Joseph and his five companions along with the Guosim and Finnbarr help each other sail the Pearl ueen to reach Southsward This theme greatly affects the protagonists and it actually keeps them alive Without trusting each other Mariel and Dandin would have never been able to fight the rat hordes I would rate this book on a scale of one to five four and a half stars The book was great very compelling and it makes you keep reading on and on You won’t want to stop The book is not as interesting as some of the previous Redwall books but it’s pretty good anyway I recommend this book to anyone with a sense of adventure action and a bit of war This would be a good book for ages ten to thirteen

    One of my favorite Redwall books yet especially since there is a searat who actually gets to have a redemptive arc It makes it interesting when you can't classify an animal as good or bad merely by species There are 3 different storylines going on at once which isn't unusual for a Redwall book but Jacues does a marvelous job of bringing them all together
