I haven't read a Jacques book since I finished the Redwall series. And, when you read a bunch of different stuff for over a year, you kinda start to forget certain things about certain authors that you really love. And that's kinda what happened to me; I had forgotten just how great of an author he was. Of course, I knew that Redwall was one of my favorite series and that Jacques is a great writer. But every author has a different style. From Tolkien to Rowling to Meyer, every single author has a different style. Some are more modern, some more golden oldie. Some prefer first-person views, some third-person. There are even some second-person books around. But I have to say that Brian Jacques's style of writing is possibly my favorite of any author. The way he words things is so...clever. He often uses words such as "jolly-good" and "bravo" in ways that I've never read before. And I absolutely love it. Jacques thinks of things to put in his writing that I have rarely, if ever, read. And The Ribbajack is one of the many examples of this.
