    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 adorable 247 This is one of

A phenomenal worldwide bestseller for than forty years Richard Adams's Watership Down is a timeless classic and one of the most beloved novels of all time Set in England's Downs a once idyllic rural. 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 allude to simple problems They re complex and purposeful So if he didn t intend them then his unconscious certainly did I can t believe the literary merit of this work is entirely accidental Animals don t behave like men he said If they have to fight they fight and if they have to kill they kill But they don t sit down and set their wits to work to devise ways of spoiling other creatures lives and hurting them They have dignity and animality This has a surprising amount of depth The story is a comment on the brutal nature of man and his careless attitude towards nature it is a suggestion that he kills for the sake of killing rather than out of a need for survival it is a statement that man is not in touch with nature like other animals but in spite of this he is redeemable and capable of the opposite as much as the apparent Indeed this can be seen with the little girl who saves Hazel the Rabbit s chief at the end of the novel So it s a bit than a basic children s fable This is one of those rare rare books that can be read by anyone regardless of age and taste in novels it really is a wonderful story that has the potential to be enjoyed by all Indeed there is a reason why very few people have not heard of Watership Down and it s not because this is just a tale of rabbits attempting to find a new home and survive That is the crux of the plot but not the limits of the scope of the novel It has the appearance of a children s novel in that it is an exciting adventure about rabbits but for an adult it has greater depth Moreover the novel uestions the artificial life that captive animals must endure and demonstrates that they should be at one with their true nature like the rabbits of this novel This for me is a rather deep observation Humans are a species that superimpose their ways on all other forms of life If the animals don t adapt then they die I m not going to go into the murky realms of morality but whatever you think about the treatment of animals this is a truism Humans destroy nature as they destroy most things I m sounding like a little bit of a misanthrope but again it s true Men will never rest till they ve spoiled the earth and destroyed the animals Regardless of what Richard Adams thinks his book is an allegory for many things He may not have intended this but the finished product clearly transcends his motives it has become a real work of literature One need only look at half the works in the literary cannon to see that the interpretations of these works rarely correspond with the author s intent and sometimes even directly oppose them Many critics even say the author isn t important and is just a mere vessel for the work If this is true then one needn t look any further than the wonderful tale of Watership Down for conformation This is a great book Postscript I found this gorgeous illustrated edition in Waterstones that I just had to buyI mean just look at it You can connect with me on social media via My Linktree

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
