Purchased today at the Edmonton Public Library Fall book sale.

I read this book a while ago (it was mentioned in Stephen King's "The Stand"). I really enjoyed the story.

The rabbits quest was exciting and at times a nail-biter. This is a great story of what belief in others and determination can achieve.

I will be releasing this book as either a bookray or a RABCK, I haven't decided yet.

I couldn't get into the book. :( I always got the names wrong and couldn't remember who Bigwig or Fiver was! Am I getting old ? lol Or maybe I just don't like classic... though I was very interested to read the book because of all the good opinions about it.
Anyway, it's now reserved for lauraloo29 as a bookrelay. Hope she'll enjoy. :)

I had a hard time getting into this book. Who knew rabbits talked so much? I have limited reading time now, and I can't struggle with this one anymore. I'll look for a new home for it.

It’s funny that there’s such a fuss about some books and then when I get to read them they’re pleasant enough but nothing else.
This is one of those cases and I can clearly see why some readers would find it hard getting into it.
The rabbits in this story are quite unusual, not only do they talk (and talk and talk and talk) but they also lay out some very ingenious plans. The plot is tight and the story itself reads like an adventure in which the heroes run across fields, fight some very dangerous animals, use their cunning and end up getting in a fight with mad dictator rabbit. An entraining read but that’s about it.
I’ll be sending it along when I get an address.

I found this a little difficult to get into but I am very glad that I persevered as I really enjoyed it. It was a story of courage, determination and friendship which had me wishing for the success of those brave bunnies.

Thank you to lauraloo29 for starting the ray and to kizmiaz for sending it my way.

I have to admit that I was already biased because I knew and loved the movie. And the book fulfilled and in some aspecst even surpassed my expectations!
The language is very beautiful and the narrators voice is very comfortable to follow. The story itself is very captivating (even though I knew what was about to happen) and sometimes broken through by rabbit lore.
I really don't know why I waited so long to read it...

I just loved re-reading this. Just as good the second time round!

Will post a review in a few days.

Off it goes to the next reader... Enjoy!!

Here's the review:

I liked this even better the second time. It's an adventure story. But what I liked best about it, and which didn't strike me the first time I read it (or at least I don't remember being struck by it), was the theme of how important it is to be true to your nature.

Rabbits is rabbits, and must be rabbits: they need to live in a dry, clean warren, in peace together. There may be disagreements and some fighting, but no animosity. It is the rabbits that have turned into power hungry warriors, or semi-tame automatons that wreak havoc on themselves and others.

A cautionary tale, written 30 some years ago, but even more pertinent today. Humans is humans, but we would do well to take a few lesson from the rabbits in this lovely fable.

Got this today in the post, thank you! Looking forward to re-reading this old favourite!

Am releasing this into the wild on the shelves at the Community Services Center, Taipei (where we're setting up an OBCZ) as I'm the last one on the ray. Thanks for the chance to re-live this childhood epic, it was different seeing it though adult eyes but still lots of fun.
