*** ITA/ENG ***
Non ho ancora incontrato nessun altro autore in grado di ambientare un romanzo nel mondo animale e rendere questo mondo così totalmente loro. I conigli di questo libro non ragionano come degli umani con le orecchie lunghe, non si comportano come piccole personcine pelose.

Sono i conigli più coniglieschi che potreste trovare in un libro. Alcune loro abitudini non sono nemmeno spiegate al lettore, così come le loro storie e il loro folklore hanno radici nell'essere prede.

Forse è per questo che fin da ragazzina ho trovato le loro avventure così affascinanti. La loro paura traspariva da ogni pagina, lo sforzo sovrumano per superare le loro abitudini e affrontare l'epopea del trovare un nuovo posto dove vivere suonava autentico e... insomma, chi è che non vorrebbe sentire le avventure di El-ahrairà?
***************

This is one of my all times favourite books. I've never encountered another book where the animals were so familiar and so alien at the same time, with a society that isn't simply a human imitation, but well rounded and based on the real rabbits way of life in the wild.

The book is a sort of fantasy with animals, where the main characters struggle and fight to gain a place in world, and their struggle is so more evident as the are rabbit living a rabbit life.

Please read it, you won't regret it. ( )

This one needs to be on my read again list. ( )

A tight-knit group of heroes must flee a grim fate, journey across a dangerous territory, and finally defend their new home against impossible odds. Inspiring.

The quotations, from many sources, are also excellent. ( )

This was a book that I started simply because my friends introduced me to the Netflix show. I hadn't known about this book prior to that, but was glad to learn of it. I enjoyed this read immensely and highly recommend it. The characters were beautiful and the way that they were understandably still rabbits was amazing. I am going to look for the Stories of Watership Down as well and read that next as I don't want the stories to end just yet. ( )

It’s a really good book in terms of it’s rising action and falling action. It’s a type of suspense that keeps you on your toe’s but can also bestow a sort of a relief that make you feel like you just ran track for and hour nonstop, finally coming to a halt. As for the plot 10 out of 10 the hook can be conveyed in partial as something to grab your attention but will do well not to lay it all out on the line, and you almost never to be finding yourself stuck on any minor plot point, although minor plot points add a sense of relief to the story’s intriguing plot. Even more so the book is one of the most astounding, heartwarming , and suspenseful book you will ever have the sheer joy in reading, I know I have. If you do dare to indulge this literary masterpiece then be ready for an emotional roller coaster ride.

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.

CHORUS: Why do you cry out thus, unless at some vision of horror?
CASSANDRA: The house reeks of death and dripping blood.
CHORUS: How so? 'Tis but the odour of the altar sacrifice.
CASSANDRA: The stench is like a breath from the tomb.

Aeschylus Agamemnon
"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."
