Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A phenomenal worldwide bestseller for over thirty years, Richard Adams's Watership Down is a timeless classic and one of the most beloved novels of all time. Set in England's Downs, a once idyllic rural landscape, this stirring tale of adventure, courage, and survival follows a band of very special creatures on their flight from the intrusion of man and the certain destruction of their home. Led by a stouthearted pair of brothers, they journey forth from their native Sandleford Warren through the harrowing trials posed by predators and adversaries, to a mysterious promised land and a more perfect society.

The interactions and relationships between the rabbits drew me in immediately. I put off reading this book for a long time because I thought I'd be let down from all the build up; but, I was not let down at all. It's a quick read.

This was one of those classic books that had somehow escaped me having read it in school but I kept seeing it pop up different places and decided to finally read it. And boy am I glad I did! This is an amazing story that Richard Adams made up for his daughters while on a road trip. How incredible is that? My dad certainly never did or maybe my sister and I would have enjoyed road trips more. I'm amazed at how intricate these stories within a story are, especially with all of its rich mythology for the rabbits.
