Sull'Autore

Brian Jacques was born in Liverpool, England on June 15, 1939. After he finished St. John's School at the age of fifteen, he became a merchant seaman and travelled to numerous ports including New York, Valparaiso, San Francisco, and Yokohama. Tiring of the lonely life of a sailor, he returned to mostra altro Liverpool where he worked as a railway fireman, a longshoreman, a long-distance truck driver, a bus driver, a boxer, a police constable, a postmaster, and a stand-up comic. During the sixties, he was a member of the folk singing group The Liverpool Fishermen. He wrote both poetry and music, but he began his writing career in earnest as a playwright. His three stage plays Brown Bitter, Wet Nellies, and Scouse have been performed at the Everyman Theatre. He wrote Redwall for the children at the Royal Wavertree School for the Blind in Liverpool, where he delivered milk as a truck driver. His style of writing is very descriptive, because of the nature of his first audience, for whom he painted pictures with words, so that they could see them in their imaginations. After Alan Durband, his childhood English teacher, read Redwall, he showed it to a publisher without telling Jacques. This event led to a contract for the first five books in the Redwall series. He also wrote the Castaways of the Flying Dutchman series. He died on February 5, 2011. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra meno

Ship stowaway Ben cursed and made like an angel in Name that Book (Aprile 2013)

Recensioni

Letto quando avevo undici anni l'estate della prima media e poi riletto miriadi di volte. Oscilla tra la "violenza disney", dove la gente muore senza spargere sangue e per lo piu' fuori scena, e parti veramente oscure e drammatiche.
Il cattivo e' dannatamente fuori di testa (nel senso di psicopatico) ma affascinante, un personaggio decisamente ben riuscito, e la scena della maschera e' davvero un pugno allo stomaco, soprattutto considerando che e' un libro per bambini. Dopo questo, Due Facce e il Fantasma dell'Opera mi sono sembrati nulla al confronto.

A me e' sembrato una spanna sopra gli altri libri di Jacques che ho letto (Fiormuschiato, Redwall e Mariel)

Uno dei libri della mia infanzia, prima che mi dessi al fantasy attorno ai dodici anni.
