watershipGoodreads Rating: 2 out of 5 Stars

Here’s another for my “will not finish” pile.  I understood Watership Down was a story that Richard Adams made up for his children.  Unless his children were much older than I pictured, I think 75% of what I have read so far would have terrified small children. I had never read it before, and I thought I’d give it a try.  I am a little less than halfway through the book, and I think I’m done.

I was hoping for something a little more light-hearted and whimsical. I know reality isn’t that way, but I don’t need to read about rabbits dying, fighting each other or being run over by cars.  The book could still have been written for adults with less gruesome/disturbing details. But then I always enjoyed “animal” books like Winnie the Pooh so there must be something wrong with me!

      I’m sorry! :). I was hoping for cute and light-hearted. It’s more gritty and real. You may like it. I didn’t.
