REVIEW Watership Down

Watership Down

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 stouthearted pair of friends. 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 Absolute Trust (Renegade, is such

    I don’t give a shit what Richard Adams says about his book because it simply isn’t true According to him in the preface of my edition this is just a story about rabbits Its intended purpose was to entertain his children in the car that’s fair enough but he also says there is no intentional allegorical meaning whatsoever I find this hard to believe The allegories in here are rich and meaningful They don’t just al

    Most reviews I write just for the hell of it for my own records and if some people like them I am just happy as a lark For Watership Down however I am just a little bit ambitious I would like to convince people who feel averse to reading a novel for children about rabbits to drop their preconception and give this book a chance This is not a book about cute little bunnies running around eating carrots and being adorabl
