Fiver is a rabbit. He has premonitions. Hazel, his older brother, listens to him. A handful of the other rabbits in the warren listen to Hazel. Thus begins an amazing journey as some of the rabbits pay heed to Fiver’s warning of impending doom and seek out a new home. Along the way you will learn about rabbit life and history. You will hear many great stories about rabbit cunning as they recite the ancient fables and stories of their gods. You will enjoy their exploits, revel in their triumphs and tremble in their dangers as they set out to create a hopeful and satisfying life in Watership Downs.The final battle couldn’t have been made to be more exciting if George Lucas had suddenly appeared in the honeycomb and given all the rabbits light sabers.
Take my advice, listen to Fiver and Hazel and do what they tell you. You don’t want to upset Bigwig or, worse yet, meet the Black Rabbit!
I recommend this book for all.
