A phenomenal worldwide bestseller for over thirty years, Richard Adams's Watership Down is a timeless classic and one of the most beloved novels of all time. Set in England's Downs, a once idyllic rural 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 stouthearted pair of brothers, they journey forth from their native Sandleford Warren through the harrowing trials posed by predators and adversaries, to a mysterious promised land and a more perfect society.

Watership Down is one of my favourite fantasy books. I like it very much. Watership Down is a story about rabbits. In other words, it's animal fantasy. That's why many people think that it's a children's book, but they're wrong. In my opinion Watership Down is a book for adults. Richard Adams writes amazingly well about the rabbits and their lives. The reader comes to care about the rabbits and wants to know what happens to them. If you haven't read this classic book yet, you should read it. It's one of the best animal fantasy books ever written.
