Watership Down

Actually, I’ve never seen or read any of the Watership Down stories, but I think I should, since I now live in Hampshire and all! (Being where it’s set.) According to Wikipedia “Watership Down is a classic heroic fantasy novel, written by English author Richard Adams, about a small group of rabbits. Although the animals in the story live in their natural environment, they are anthropomorphised, possessing their own culture, language, proverbs, poetry, and mythology. Evoking epic themes, the novel recounts the rabbits' odyssey as they escape the destruction of their warren to seek a place in which to establish a new home, encountering perils and temptations along the way.”

The stories in the set are:

  1. The Promised Land
    2. Home on the Down
    3. The Easy Life

    A great story FOR ADULTS! Why would you traumatise your children with this? I remember seeing the movie when I was a child and it still gives me nightmares. Never understood how this could be marketed to children, still can't listen to 'Bright Eyes' without getting chills.

      You are kidding right? Just for adults? Well yes I was traumatised as a child - just as I was traumatised by Bambi, and Dumbo, and Ring of Bright Water (about otters). It is a cartoon! A fictional cartoon. A fabulous, fun and incredibly deeply emotional but in a good way story. I just cried buckets when I read the book for the first time when I was 10, and again when I was 11 and when I was 12 ...
