Slowly watching the new Netflix show Don t want to cry too much at once Re read on audio is great Still truly wonderful sad OMG I can t believe it has taken me all of these years to read this book It was such a wonderful book There were some sad things but I was able to get through it I loved getting lost in this world of rabbits where they talked of their fears of things they needed to get done the great camaraderie between each and every one of them They were all so brave I loved them all I had a soft spot mostly for Hazel Fiver and Bigwig I even loved Kehaar They were all so wonderful and such little hero s Even though the rabbits where going through all of these hardships I felt like I was taken back in time to a time of childhood and great things I guess it s hard to explain but I m sure some of you know what I m talking about You didn t have to read this as a child to get that feeling I would recommend this book to anyone that hasn t read it yet It will take you away to another world for a little bit of your life and it s worth it PS The movie is free to watch on Youtube I m not sure if I would let small children read or watch this movie since it s rather gory and sad things Although it s all real life It s up to you as a parent with small children FYI I was allowed to watch anything at a very young age so it s hard for me to say That ending is so bittersweet Happy Reading Mel MY BLOG Melissa Martin s Reading List

review Watership Down Watership Down Read & Download ↠ 4 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. 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 I suspect a rabbit s true inner monologue would be rather dull even if it could be put into words But what Richard Adams achieved was something that kept his rabbits much closer to the real creatures from the details of their living uarters to the unvarnished truth that rabbits eat their own crap When Adams rabbits come into contact with humans we get a true sense of incomprehension of struggling to make sense of their activities and technology within the framework of a very different world viewWatership Down is a fat book containing a lot of story The warren has a history The rabbits as a species have a history stored in an oral tradition of stories about their gods and heroes Disaster visits our hero the rabbit Hazel who is neither the uickest strongest bravest or cleverest of his fellows and with a mixed band he sets out across Watership Down on a uestAdams gives each of the rabbits a uniue and interesting character from which much of the strength of this novel springs The dynamics in the group the strengthening friendships the teamwork used in overcoming challenges is all fascinating and even though the rabbits keep doing deeply rabbitty things it is hard not to think of them as people that you like and care about There are themes of duty fate friendship and love All human life is here On four furry feetThere is high drama combat even war This book will make chills run down your spine as one rabbit defends a run from another Rabbits Seriously think Gandalf stepping out into the balrog s path and declaring You shall not pass or Boromir standing alone against an orc horde There is in one fight scene a line that has its place high on the list of the best uotes of this sort from any book or film I know Delivered by a rabbit called Bigwig It sounds silly now but when you read it you won t think soIt would take a colder man than me not to cry at the end of this novel and possibly several places in betweenI finally got around to reviewing this book despite it being so long since I last read it because Richard Adams died recently aged 96 and it was best way I could think to commemorate himThis book is about rabbits but it is stuffed with beauty fear passion and excitement and it taught me a lot about life I commend it to your attention Join my 3 emails a year newsletter prizes

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
