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. El ahrairah your people cannot rule the world for I will not have it so All the world will be your enemy Prince with a Thousand Enemies and whenever they catch you they will kill you But first they must catch you digger listener runner prince with the swift warning Be cunning and full of tricks and your people shall never be destroyedWhen Fiver a seer is overcome with a vivid dream of mass destruction He tries to convince the rabbits in charge of the validity of his vision They are dismissive but one rabbit named Hazel does believe him They convince nine other bucks to leave the warren with them Driven by fear and curiosity they begin an odyssey that if Homer had been fortunate enough to hear about would have given him another epic story to tell for a few copper coins in the town suare Hazel finds out he is a natural leader and through courage luck and Macguveresue skills manages to bring his troop through the thickets of a new and dangerous world They meet other warrens of rabbits with society aberrations that made them unpalatable for amalgamation Given the way that Richard Adams portrayed these rigid social constructs I came away with the feeling that he was somewhat anti government He seemed to be advocating that a looser structure of co existence will lead to happier rabbitspeople Speaking of that even though these rabbits did take on some human characteristics I never really thought of them as people I was convinced I was reading a book about rabbits not rabbits with human faces That to me is a major achievement and at the same time in the early pages made me feel like I was reading a book at a reading level below my comfort zone Rabbits are relatively simple animals and Adams adhered to that principle for most of the book Cleverness was a revered trait among warren colonies and is reflected in their stories of past accomplishments by legendary rabbits These stories passed down orally from generation to generation provided a collective source of cunning skills that are applied to situations beyond the natural experiences of our erstwhile heroes It doesn t take long for the all male colony to realize that if they want kittens They must have DOES They were in such a hurry to escape the warren that they forgot to bring the mystical other half necessary for reproduction They came to the same conclusion that tribal units have come to for thousands of years If they don t have something they need than they need to liberate it from someone else The Efrafa warren is governed by General Woundwart He is a brutal militaristic leader who rules his burrow with an iron fist The Efrafa happen to have a plethora of DOES and Hazel and his band of intrepid bunnies believe they are clever enough with the help of some unusual allies to coax away enough DOES to insure the survival of their fledgling society This sets up one of the most pulse pounding showdowns I ve read in a long time Displaying the courage of the defenders of the Alamo and the steadfastness of the Spartans at the battle of Thermopylae I found myself glowing with the pride of a participant white knuckles and all as the Watership Down rabbits defend their home The thing about this book is that you have to hang in there I have started and stopped this book a handful of times but several reviews on goodreads convinced me I was giving up on the book too soon At about page 70 I could feel my eyes looking over with longing at the stack of books waiting in the wings As the pages stacked up I started to care about this band of brothers I wish that I had read it in time to have shared it with my kids There is much to be discussed especially in regards to how societies are structured about courage about friendship about thinking outside the box and about the importance of how we conduct ourselves within our own warrentownship If you have kids young enough read it to them It will heighten the experience for you and them I ve already got this logged as a book to read to my grandchildrensome dayin the distant futureafter my kids graduate collegeget great jobsmeet their soulmatesand have kids that love to curl up in their grandfather s lap for a tale that may help shape the people they become RIP Richard Adams May 9th 1920 December 24th 2016If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at
