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.

A delightful book, even better the second time around.

This classic tale has something relatable for everyone. While yes the characters are rabbits, the overall tale is one that can easily be applied to people as far as a tale of survival and perseverance.

The story shows the resilience and determination. Sensing danger a brave group dares to set out and build a new home. Just as many refugees, the rabbits have their struggles yet their legends and myths help guide them and by sticking together they succeed.

There are lessons throughout this book that can teach us all something. ( )

Entertaining, but surprisingly gruesome. Hard to believe he wrote this for his daughters given his consistent disparagement of the rabbit does.

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.

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.

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.
