Staff Reviews

You think it’s just about bunnies, but then WHAM, it hits you with the evils of complacency and facism.  I’ve read this so many times that my copy’s cover fell off years ago.

— From Dorie's Picks


Watership Down is the compelling tale of a group of wild rabbits struggling to hold onto their place in the world--soon to be a BBC and Netflix animated miniseries starring James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, and Oscar and Grammy award-winning Sir Ben Kingsley.

A phenomenal worldwide bestseller for more than forty 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.
