Mossflower Audio Book [EXCLUSIVE] Free 14
There have been full-length audiobooks published of most of the Redwall books, the exceptions being The Pearls of Lutra, Marlfox, Lord Brocktree (on cassette), The Legend of Luke, and The Rogue Crew. Instead of being read by a single actor, the novels are narrated by a large cast. Brian Jacques served as the narrator for almost all of the audiobooks (with Salamandastron being the sole exception), sometimes reading select parts, and his son Marc Jacques appeared as the characters Matthias, Martin and others. The audiobooks also feature fully-realized musical performances of the songs that each book contains, composed and performed by Billy Maher.

Some abridged audiobooks have also been released. They include Redwall, Mossflower, Pearls of Lutra, The Long Patrol, Marlfox, The Legend of Luke and Lord Brocktree. Each is three hours in length and read solely by Brian Jacques or another narrator.
All audiobooks are sent through USPS First Class and will arrive at your hands between 7 and 10 days after your purchase (usually much sooner than later). A link will be sent so you can track your product online.
This is a great WW2 story line for being a part of the Pacific theater. I was captivated from the first audio book. History unfolds before you. Real events are the foundations for the personal story. Having served in the Navy, I was back on board ship, in the boats, and smelling the tropical islands once again. These are all well written with great knowledge of the military, the history of the war, and lore of the seas. I look forward to rereading and re-listening to the series. I must for any Military history buff.
When I saw that this website claimed to have the audiobook of The First Man In Rome by Colleen McCullough, narrated by Jill Tanner, I was skeptical. I have looked high and low on the internet and this unabridged recording of the book is IMPOSSIBLE to find, at least where I live in the US. Most services (and all the libraries I checked!) only have the recording of the abridged version, read by a male narrator, which has been universally panned by readers as a bad abridgement. I decided I would take a chance, and ordered the CD set. (I include all this detail because I know there are others like me who periodically scour the internet for this recording.)
Motion. Audiobooks. Came. THROUGH. The CD's they sent were the real deal, the recording I had been looking for fruitlessly on the internet! Even better, I was able to buy the whole series on CD for less than I normally spend on a single audiobook. I can't tell you how excited I was!
Now, the audiobook itself was a little difficult to listen to for modern ears. I believe it was recorded in 1991, and distributed in a quality that made the file size small enough to fit on a few CD's - at the cost of audio quality. The high end of the audio has been clipped, so it sounds a little like hearing someone talk through a phone connection. However it's tolerable, and you get used to it. The other issue for me was the slow cadence of the files. I ended up putting all the files (there were 35 of them for the first book in the series, most of them 1hr 15m long) into a podcast app so I could take advantage of listening at speed, and with gaps automatically removed. I will say that the process of finding a CD player, getting the files onto my iPhone, and ultimately into my podcast app was a pain - but for a recording as rare as this, it was worth it! All of this I take to be issues with the master recording, not issues that MotionAudiobooks is responsible for.
