    Question Timeline

    What is the order of the books chronologically? I don't mean "what came out first". That is easy to figure out. I'm trying to figure out what order they happen in time. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    The order thus far of the books (timeline wise) is:

    Lord Brocktree

    Martin The Warrior

    Mossflower

    The Legend of Luke

    Outcast of Redwall

    Mariel of Redwall

    The Bellmaker

    Salamandastron

    Redwall

    Mattimeo

    The Pearls of Lutra

    The Long Patrol

    Marlfox

    Taggerung

    Triss

    Loamhedge

    Shameless plug: All this info was obtained from Redwall.org. It's the official Redwall site, and if you're a Redwall fan, is the first place you should go if you have the internet.

    If you read them in chronological order, yes, you'd have no problem understanding the books. Likewise, you'll have no problem reading them in the order they were published. You might even prefer to do it that way - after all, that's how a lot of people have read all of them.

    Myself? I read them all in chronological order until Lord Brocktree came out, and then I had no choice but to read them in the order they were published.

    So it really doesn't matter either way. It all depends on personal preference, I suppose.

    Ummm... This info is in the "library" section, where all the info is about the books. I read them publisher's order because that way, when the timeline of the books skipped back (from Salamandastron to Legend of Luke) I felt like I was discovering something that had been hidden in the bygone mists of time. Er.....

    Smile The timeline

    Hi! I am new, so this may have already been discussed but I was wondering if anyone could tell me what to order to read the Redwall books in if I want to read them in the very correct order? Please let me know! Thankx!

    glad to see you found the other thread. Read the books in the Publisher's order(the year they were published, not necessarily the order chronologically they take place.) It's the best way to go

    I don't like the publisher's list, but it doesn't confuse you at all. I read them in wotever order they came in at the library. But if you read Martin the Warrior before Mossflower, it kinda takes away the mystery of who Masrtin is. So I would definetly read Mossflower first. Welcome, Miss WotWot! (cool name!)

    ok, i read legend of luke first, then mattimeo.
    you can stop laughing now.
    Hey, buds. I haven't been here in, well, a good while. Last visited January 9th...Well, I'm sorry to have forgotten you guys. Some of you (Most, I hope) will remember me, and others will, I'm sure, have been told about me, and warned to lock up their daughters and wives. Heh. Anyway, I'm posting a thread about my future here, so...get over there. Read it.
