Redwall (Redwall, Book 1)

Redwall  - Gary Chalk, Brian Jacques This book was tedious in the extreme.In Redwall's defense, I read the book over a series of months during my lunch break, while I generally tend to inhale books I like within a couple days. Perhaps the starting and stopping and slow pace made me lose interest in it.I just think that after Harry Potter, children's fantasy has changed to much to make this really accessible to today's reader. Everything is just so corny and cartoony and things tend to fall into the good vs. evil dichotomy too easily. There is no explanation really for Cluny's evil, except his desire to conquer the Redwall castle. The "good" is just so blatantly and purely good that it gets really dull.
