Travelling To Watership Down: a book review of Richard Adams's classic Watership Down

Richard Adams’s classic “children’s” tale Watership Down, published in 1972, is an absolute gem. I say “children’s” because while the plot might seem childish at first glance, as it does revolve around a group of rabbits, it is no Beatrix Potter – but don’t get me wrong, I do love me some Peter Rabbit. 880 more words
