Book Review: Watership Down, by Richard Adams

This book almost made me hate cats. Almost.

Don’t expect cute and happy and hopping little bun-buns. There’s violence, implied rape, death- a lot of things you normally wouldn’t find in a children’s’ book. 65 more words

Book Review

Gauche the Cellist (セロ弾きのゴーシュ)

(To check out my essay on Isao Takahata’s previous film click here: Jarinko Chie)

The story of Gauche the Cellist is a long one and the review of its production deserves a pretty long space to talk about it. 1,909 more words


What I've been reading - Watership Down by Richard Adams

Watership Down by Richard Adams

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve loved this book for years. My favourite parts are mostly about the Black Rabbit of Inle and El-Ahrairah, and Fiver’s visions. 37 more words



The intention at this time of year is to hunker down and read. Somehow that never quite happens. Hours of escapism are sacrificed for the more immediate concerns of constant clearing up, juggling invitations and the sociability of cosying around a warm television in the room where the Christmas tree twinkles. 759 more words

The Christmas Rabbits of C.S. Lewis

Creation is alive with the spark of God, often witnessed in the innocence of children. For those made curious by the title, it is actually an amalgam of two oddly related God moments recently experienced through the pen of two celebrated English writers. 882 more words

Books I like a.k.a Influential Literature

One of my favourite books of all time is Watership Down, a tale of adventure involving a group of rabbits.  If you’ve only watched the movie, you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s a children’s story but it, as with many tales involving animals as main protagonists, is so much more. 285 more words
