Synopsis (from Barnes & Noble)

A phenomenal worldwide bestseller for over thirty 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 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 stouthearted pair of brothers, they journey forth from their native Sandleford Warren through the harrowing trials posed by predators and adversaries, to a mysterious promised land and a more perfect society.

I read this book a few years ago, after seeing it on the tv show Lost (Sawyer was reading it). I remember enjoying the story and thought it was well written.

I was rather frustrated at first with this book as I did not seem to be bonding with it and I could not understand why. But as I got about half way, I discovered that I was really into it :)! I can now see why this book is so loved. As I read it, I always knew I was reading about Rabbits, because I could really see real rabbits doing what the rabbits in the book were doing. I loved that the author invented Lapine (with explanations throughout the book and a Glossary at the end). I also liked the maps. Some more big ones would have been nice (like at the beginning of each Part - showing where the action takes place in that part). I really enjoyed all the El-ahrairah legends. This book is life, rabbit style!
