Synopsis

Watership Down is an allegorical fantasy novel written by British author Richard Adams, narrating the adventures of a small group of anthropomorphized rabbits as they escape the destruction of their homeland. The story is set in England’s Downs, an idyllic rural home to the small native creatures who possess their own cultures, languages, poetry and mythology. They are soon faced with the settlement of humanity and watch as their land is ravaged by farmland and industrialized commercial advancement. In fear of their lives they leave their homes in hope of finding safety for their family and friends, despite the temptations and perils they are forced to struggle with along the way.

Reviews

On Dec 27 2016, a reader said:
After hearing of Richard Adams' death, I turned once again to a book I have long considered to be a best friend. This adventure story pulls you into a world unseen by humans. The characters are human enough to relate to but animal enough to remain rabbits. The story is captivating and relevant. No matter how many times I read it, I can never put it down while reading the last quarter, it's so suspenseful and exciting.

The characters have been beloved of me for many years and I only hope that I have Fiver's insight, Hazel's authority, Bigwig's strength, and Blackberry's wits.

About Discover Books

Our company was launched based on the fundamental belief that used books have value and should never go to waste. Prior to our founding, many of our staff worked in the thrift industry where we saw millions of books being sent to landfills each year. With each discarded book, we thought of the imagination, magic, and knowledge lost forever to a garbage heap and we endeavored to find a better way.

We think books should achieve their greatest possible purpose: Whether purchased by another reader, donated to help a child acquire the lifelong skill of literacy, or recycled as a new product, it has a story to tell. We let stories live on.
