    Watership Down is one of those fantastically detailed books that is totally immersive. You really get to understand their culture. It’s sad to see Adams go, but at least he was 96.

    If you haven’t picked up Watership Down, I highly recommend it.

    When I was young, I wanted a rabbit. My mom said she’d get me one if I read Watership Down. It’s the first book I read tat made me cry at the end.

    I never got a rabbit. I’ve read it three times in my lifetime, so my mom owes me three bunnies.
