One of the best epilogues ever. ( )
  gideonslife | Jan 5, 2023 |
Good stories, well told. I never questioned the novel's world of talking, intelligent rabbits. ( )

I have never read Watership Down, though I did try. I am still not sure I would have ever read it without listening to it first.

Adams has a loping narrative style akin to Tolkien's many-page descriptions of scenery or walking. I would have been bored to tears reading it. Lying on the couch listening to the narrator, though, I found it soothing.

I ended up really enjoying the book. I found myself truly invested in the fates of all the rabbits, and their journey to Watership Down and their subsequent quest for does. Lovely, if at times pretty dark, story. ( )

One of the best books of all time, absolutely a classic. I've read this book several times, and still quote lines from it. I still remember begging my parents to buy it for me at a bookstore in the mall (spoiler alert: they did). If you haven't read it, you need to. ( )

Published in 1972, I had heard of this book for years, but never read it. I always thought it was a book for children, but it is one that adults can appreciate too. In fact, it may be too intense and sad in places for younger children. Set in rural England, a warren of wild rabbits finds their turf threatened by humans, so a group of brave adventurers embark on a journey to find a new home. They survive dangerous wildlife, weather, and wars with other warrens.

These rabbits find entertainment and education through storytelling. The primary narrative is supplemented with side stories of the rabbits’ folklore heroes. It contains new words, reflecting their distinct language. It is extremely creative. The only drawback, for me, is the lack of any significant presence of female characters.

This is a perfect book for audio, and it is wonderfully read by Peter Capaldi. There are many characters, and he gives each one a distinct voice. It felt listening to a bedtime story or a play on the radio. Just marvelous! If you are on a long driving trip with kids, this would be a great choice for an audio the whole family could enjoy.

Watership Down offers little to build a literary cult upon. On the American-whimsy exchange, one Tolkien hobbit should still be worth a dozen talking rabbits.
afegit per Shortride | editaTime, Melvin Maddocks (Mar 18, 1974)
 
This bunny-rabbit novel not only steers mostly clear of the usual sticky, anthropomorphic pitfalls of your common garden-variety of bunny rabbit story: it is also quite marvelous for a while, and after it stops being marvelous, it settles down to be pretty good- a book you can live with from start to finish.
afegit per Shortride | editaThe New York Times, Christopher Lehmann-Haupt (Web de pagament) (Mar 6, 1974)
 
It simply isn't possible. At this date, you cannot write a story about rabbits, 413 pages long, and hold a reader riveted. But Richard Adams has done exactly that in Watership Down (Rex Collings, £3.50). This is a great book, establishing a more than plausible and totally fascinating psychology and physiology for its rabbits, together with their own mythology and language. It sounds formidable, perhaps; yet what one's aware of, reading, is a story of the most exciting kind, remaining taut over all those pages. It's set in a precise part of Berkshire (map provided) – the hejira of a group of rabbits who accept a clairvoyant companion’s prophecy that their warren will be destroyed; their establishment of a new home and their search for mates – this leading to war with a warren ruled by the protectively totalitarian General Woundwort. A whole world is created, perfectly real in itself, yet constituting a deep incidental comment on human affairs.

"Who wants to hear about brave deeds when he's ashamed of his own, and who likes an open, honest tale from someone he's deceiving?"
"A rabbit who does not know when a gift has made him safe is poorer than a slug, even though he may think otherwise himself."
