I received the 1975 book Watership Down as a freebie with one of my orders.  That book sat on my parents' bookshelf since the year it came out and I never read it.  I am finally reading it now, and it is wonderful. 

Lately, it seems that I am always reading the latest hyped-up book, but, for some reason, they never live up to their reputations.  Watership Down may not be fashionable reading, but it is beautifully written, heartwarming, suspenseful, and just plain fun.  I recommend it!

If you like the style of Watership Down, Look into the Redwall series by Brian Jacques!

Nicole -

That was always one of my favorite books! I'm always glad to hear when someone else enjoys it as much as I did.

I adore Watership Down. It is one of my most favorites. It's one I can read over and over.

You should also read the sequel "Tales From Watership Down." :)

Love that book. In the 1970's they made an animated film from the book. I have a few of the cels from it.
