There's no way I can do justice to this book, 'Watership Down' was one of my favorites growing up. My mother's copy is giving up the ghost - even the rubber bands holding it together are aging out - so I'll be hunting for a nice edition of it soon, because I'm going to be reading it again. The book ...

Another one off of NPR's Ultimate Backseat Bookshelf. I've tried to read Watership Down several times, and I finally finished it! I used to watch the movie over and over as a kid even though it scared the crap out of me. I was talking to a coworker and we both agree that you could read the first h...

“Watership Down”. 30+ years later I still sometimes get nightmares. "There's a dog loose in the wood... there's a dog loose in the wood..."Couple the painful nostalgic setting of an old and disappearing rural England, with the horrors of the totalitarian rabbits, and you get something that strikes f...

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...
