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 perfect socie. Watership Down is a classic fantasy novel written in 1972 that originated in stories told by Richard Adams to his daughters on long car drives It s kind of a pastoral fantasy based on anthropomorphized rabbits who have an elaborate if primitive society A group of rabbits leaves their warren when one of them Fiver who has second sight has visions of a disaster to come after failing to convince the head rabbit of the danger The rabbits have various adventures along the way to a new home on the top of Watership Down then adventures as they somewhat belatedly realize that oops they need some female rabbits to have a viable new warren Not having a lot of other options they decide to recruit them from another overcrowded warren a few miles away Efrafa which is led by the terrifying General Woundwort Hazel Fiver Bigwig and the gang may be taking on than they can handle The actual Watership Down a hill in Hampshire EnglandOn its surface this is a semi realistic story about the lives of wild rabbits well if rabbits could talk to each other using words But in the way of most good books it s about universal truths and about human concerns as much as animal ones Adams makes some good points about how people need to treat animals and the environment as well as each other with greater respect and decency The El ahrairah tales periodically told by the rabbits storytellers about the original king of rabbits a great Trickster underscore the events and themes of the novel and add a welcome dose of humorThe rabbits have distinct memorable personalities Hazel the uiet capable leader Fiver the seer Blackberry the intelligent problem solver Bigwig the rough and tumble chief of their Owsla police Bluebell the jokester and others They have their own language called Lapine Lapine words are used freuently in this story and I m proud to say that by halfway through it I could understand the words Silflay hraka u embleer rah Eat shit you stinking chief without the need to consult the glossary at the end I read this a couple of times when I was in my teens or twenties and adored it but my buddy read with the Cool Classics Pantsless group was my first read of it in many many years It gets rather slow in parts Adams sometimes gets a little carried away with the detailed descriptions of scenery but I really do think this novel is a work of art and a well deserved classic

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. Ok so it s a book about a bunch of rabbits traveling through a small stretch of English countryside As such it doesn t seem like something that would appeal to anyone but a preteen But the fact of the matter is this is a great story full of rich characters a deep if occasionally erroneous understanding of things lapine and it can reach moments of depth and profundity that the movie of the same title does not even begin to hint at I was actually introduced to this book in one of the best ways I can imagine a friend recorded the entire book on tape and for a couple months I played the tapes of her reading a chapter or two just before I fell asleep each night My slow exposure to the book under ideal circumstances may have influenced my perceptions but I can say on each subseuent rereading of the book I ve come to appreciate it You can read the book just for the story apparently the author wrote the book from stories he would tell his children and it still can easily serve that purpose But the richness of his characters lead to many interesting analogies to human life For instance from Hazel you can learn profound things about leadership Throughout the book you feel that Hazel is the natural born leader of his group of rabbits but Richard Adams was very careful to develop this impression through character features rather than power relations The contrast is clearly intentional since the other leaders of the book achieve leadership status through very different means Many people think the book takes a strong stance against a particular kind of authoritarian rule but it is important to recognize the book gives this impression not through structured diatribe or through argument but rather it evolves out of character considerations and out of the story itself This means that the result is far complex than a simple argument For instance although General Woundwort may be seen as the main enemy that Hazel has to deal with and the authoritarian rabbit is portrayed rather negatively at times Adams uite intentionally adds some details that make him admirable to the other rabbits even to the very end A diatribe would not be so complex Fiver is another great character He adds an element of magic to the story and it allows Adams to link the rabbits he describes to a mythical world that enters into the story uite freuently One can almost see Fiver as a manifestation of imagination in this world Big wig is another likable character and the story of this rabbits experience in Efrafa is one of the highlights of the story Besides the characters the descriptions of England are also uite acute You can actually track the course of the rabbits on maps since Adams was careful to describe real places and things That attention to detail is often missed in reviews of this book Finally the thing that brings all these features together and makes the book than a mere story or an account of human characters or a diatribe against fascism is the fact that Adams is uite conscious of the fact that he is telling the story from the perspective of rabbits The challenges they face are rabbit sized the ideas about the external world are rabbitlike the philosophical insights seem rabbitized and Adams brings many of our anthropomorphized ideas of rabbits together with the reality of rabbits in a surprisingly coherent fashion I suppose the book can be seen as a cultural study of an imaginatively rich but realistic rabbit world I realize as I write this review that many other readers may not feel the same way about the book as I do It does have some shortcomings For instance female characters only make a few appearances in the book although I think Adams does show some sensitivity in their depictions But even with the limitations I would

    I read this book an age ago Maybe 40 years ago the first timeLots of authors have written animal stories but they tend to be cute little tales where the level of anthropomorphism is such that the rabbits or whatever are practically or literally wearing waistcoats and top hats We only need to look to Wind in the Willows or Beatrix Potter for examplesObviously some level of making the animals human is reuired
