I've had this paperback copy since 1975 - and never read it. I've grown up (old), moved across country and back again, each time diligently packing up this book along with the rest of them, and placing it in the same bookcase regardless of the house.

When my husband mentioned this book sort of out of the blue a couple weeks ago, he expressed a desire to read it again. I knew exactly where it was (in yet another house, another state), and laid it down on the coffee table. He was busy and didn't pick it up - so I finally did.

Totally charmed. I'm not going to bash the dated sexism which seems to be the biggest complaint I've come across. A plot twist was needed in order for this little band to venture forth from a new home, and the explanation by the author is pragmatic and borne from simple biology. I'm okay with it.

Again, totally charmed. When my husband gets around to reading it next, it will be more lovingly returned to its place in the bookcase.

Thanks for waiting, old friend. ( )

I'll never look at bunnies the same way again. What a truly wonderful book. I had somehow managed to miss it all these years, but kept seeing it on all kinds of "best of" lists so I finally sat down and checked it out. All of the rabbits really come alive with their amazing personalities. Hazel is the quiet leader. Bigwig is the muscle (with a heart). Dandelion is the storyteller who is also blazingly fast. Blackberry is the brains of the group. And Fiver is their soul. Others come into the story to threaten or help this group find a home. They go through many many trials, but they always manage to come together for each other. Wonderful, wonderful story. ( )

I’d always been to busy with school or work to get around to reading this book. The reader, Ralph Cosham, was marvelous, so I’m actually glad I waited until it came out on audio. All of the characters are wonderful so I hesitate to say that my favorite is Hazel. I suppose many would pick him, but would their reason be because he believed in Fiver before there was reason too?

I've had this book on my "want to read" list for well over 5 years and am SO GLAD I finally read it! It has a similar feel to Brian Jacques "Redwall" series and Kenneth Grahams "The Wind in the Willows", which are two of my other favorite stories. This book is lyrically written, has some of the most fascinating and lovable characters, and is just flat out engrossing. Somehow it reads like both a folktale and an adventure story, blended together seamlessly.
I read the author's forward and particularly took liking to the fact that he said that "Watership Down was never intended to be some sort of allegory or parable. It is simply the story about rabbits made up and told in the car." The fact that Adams wrote this for the purpose of entertaining his children and not providing some big, hidden narrative just really makes me like this book even more.
Without a doubt I'll be buying my own copy of this and rereading it in the future.
(Also I just want to be honest and say I literally cried like three times while reading this. Yeah, I'm a woman in my twenties crying over fictional rabbits. It be like that sometimes. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ ) ( )

This story about human struggle in an epic quest is disguised as a children’s book about rabbits. In his introduction, author Richard Adams says that this work began as a series of stories he spun for his daughters, but it is far deeper and more complicated than that. Nevertheless, it is certainly still a story for children, at least with some parental guidance. Adams imagines a rabbit language, which he calls lapine, although it is used sparingly, and there is a great emphasis on storytelling throughout. Memorable characters abound, from the visionary Fiver, the wise Hazel, the fearless Bigwig, to the violent General Woundwort, and these rabbits infused with human consciousness and some primal need for heroic stories full of acts of bravery, purpose, and honor.

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.
tilføjet af Shortride | RedigerTime, 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.
tilføjet af Shortride | RedigerThe New York Times, Christopher Lehmann-Haupt (betalingsside) (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.
