Seriously! How is no one on Booklikes or Goodreads going to give a girl a warning about making sure she had some tissues! I was a mess. Over rabbits! I have been meaning to read this book in 2017 so am glad I finally got it completed. It was a pain though since my Overdrive borrow only allows me t...

Honestly I just wasn't in the mood so I got to page 30 and decided that this was one I might revisit in the future but for now I'm not interested. :-/

Third time I've read this, but first in a few years, but I remember so much of it so vividly from when Dad read it to use when we were young. It is very difficult to talk about a book as deeply foundational as this one. I noticed more character details this time, how the stories built on each other,...

This was my first time reading Watership Down, and I didn’t know too much about it before I began reading except that it was a story told from the perspective of rabbits. I’m glad I finally read it, and I enjoyed it, but I was never enthralled by it. It was easy for me to put down. The book starts...

This was one of my course books at school and we pored over the adventures of 'Fiver' and 'Bigwig', et al and the underlying social systems of the respective burrows. It was one of those classroom unknowns, but discussed at length, whether it was the author's intention to provide a critique of democ...

There's not a story I love more than Watership Down. It's been a while since my last re read, and this time around I was afraid I would find I've been fooling myself all these years...that I would discover my teenage self had turned Watership Down into something that it wasn't and didn't deserve. ...

I have started this book without finishing it at least three times that I know of for sure. On the last attempt, some sixteen years ago, I got all the way to the climactic showdown before I threw in the towel. For some reason I couldn't hack it. I'm not sure what that reason was. I thought I knew, b...

I can't believe how hard this was to read. Watching these animals striving to find a safe place in the world was gut wrenching for me. I was so upset all the time. Every time someone got hurt I was crushed.

Not too often do I rate a book 5 stars, and when I started this, I did not think I would, but it pulls you in. It is subtle with its dive into the rabbit world. They give you hints of things, and then eventually you figure them out. Like the railroad lines. Interesting to see the hierarchy of a ...

The plot is decent, offering action and suspense at minor times throughout the story. While the book offers a continuous, easily followed, plot the book didn't seem to grasp me. The book was a good read, but I never found myself dying to read more after setting it down. In conclusion, I would recomm...
