Watership Down - life through the eyes of bunnies




The author of Watership Down, Richard Adams was born on this day in 1920.

I just loved this book – one unfortunate side effect is that I still can’t bring myself to eat rabbit!  Once read, you feel you have some insight into the world of rabbits.  Of course, you don’t really because the book created a fantasy world in a bucolic setting.

I did see the film – but like so often is the case – the book was much better in my opinion.

  1. Ooooh, I simply love this book. I didn't want to read it at first until it was mentioned on 'LOST' and that was the pushing point for me. I should read this again,

  3. I still need to read this book. I've heard great things about it from everyone and just haven't gotten the chance to read it yet. I'm glad you mentioned that the book is better than the film -- I'll hold off watching the film until I read the book.
