    One thought on “Tales from Watership Down

    1. I recommend this book to people who have already read and loved the prequel, Watership Down, as I did And even then, I can only recommend it with caveats.The title is misleading Only the second half of the book is devoted to Tales from Watership Down several new stories about Hazel rah, Fiver, Bigwig, and the others The first part of the book is comprised of rabbit folklore, legends of El Ahrairah, Prince of a Thousand Enemies I skipped that first half.For WD fans, these tales should be fairly e [...]

    2. This book was a big disappointment Especially after the amazing book that is Watership Down The first half of the book is simply stories from the rabbits mythology And yes, they are entertaining, but it is very boring to have to sit through story after story with no context in the bigger story Because for the first half of the book, there is no story It was Adams saying, Hey, I had El ahrairah stories than I could fit in the first book I think I ll just throw them in this one.Then, the story fi [...]

    3. Tales from Watership Down is a collection of legends and short stories that flesh out the history of the rabbits of Watership Down and continue their story after the events of the original novel I personally had never read any of Richard Adams works prior to this I have seen the animated film adaptation of Watership Down however, so was fairly familiar with the events and plot I was very impressed with how quickly I was drawn into Adams world His writing style is very easy to slip into and I fou [...]

    4. These stories were not bad However, I had the feeling they were an effort on the part of the author to milk his classic and truly timeless fantasy one last time My advice would be to skip these and re read Watership Down.

    5. This was a story from my past and I loved the trip down memory land.The Rabbits of Watership Down was my favourite story grown up as child, Richard Adams was a master at telling children stories I also enjoyed the cartoon of this book.In this set of stories we get a different take on the older rabbits who have great stories to tell the younger rabbits.

    6. I don t think that the timeless classic Watership Down could have continued any better this sequel not only has a variety of legendary stories from the rabbit world, but it also fills in some gaps from the previous plot If you re a fan of the first book, this is definitely a novel you ll want to read

    7. I loved WATERSHIP DOWN I enjoyed TALES FROM WATERSHIP DOWN As the long awaited continuation to Adams s original novel, it is only a sequel in the sense that it uses the same setting, motifs, and characters Because trying to continue the plot of WATERSHIP DOWN would have been anticlimactic and, frankly, a crime, TALES reads like a collection of rabbit folklore The first part of the book is a juxtaposition of Adams s rabbit folklore mostly featuring the rabbit folklore hero El ahrairah but The Ra [...]

    11. Tales From Watership Down is a collection of stories, that comprise not really a sequel, but of a coda to the events of Watership Down The book is divided into three parts, but really Parts I and II go together They mostly contain stories concerning the adventures of El ahrairah The best of which is The Story of the Terrible Hay Making , as well as two other stories, one of which The Rabbits Ghost Story is very good.The third part concerns some of the events following Watership Down The most in [...]


    12. Definitely not as good as the first book but it is good enough for me to recommend it to any fans of the Watership rabbits It almost doesn t feel like a sequel to me In a very, very vague and short way it feels like the Silmarillion to the Lord of the Rings Want to know about the rabbit s world lore Then read this book.

    13. I m giving this four stars because I truly enjoyed this book However, I did not enjoy it as much as the original Watership Down.This book, though marketed as a sequel, is not really a sequel It s of a combined supplement and what I would call a mid quel if there s a sequel and a prequel, there s a mid quel Tales is, to WD, is sort of a combination of what The Clone Wars is to the Star WArs trilogy and the other Middle EArth books are to LOTR Tales is a combination of stories about El ahrairah a [...]

    14. Remember sitting on your parent s bed, listening to stories from their childhood or of ancestors long since dead but still living in words Adams Tales has a similar feeling to it Like the Bible, it s narrative only coheres in a stretching arch from beginning to end No single conflict drives the plot, only the recognition that we are narrative creatures and that we live according to the words of stories.Except that the we in the novel is, in fact, a warren of rabbits.Here, Adams asks his reader t [...]

    15. This sequel is as bad as the original is good I delved into it with so much excitement as I love El ahrairah stories and I got this book simply because Watership Down is one of my favourite books of all time The first two parts, recounting stories of El ahrairah are tedious and bear a striking resemblance to shaggy dog stories El ahrairah wants object X He is told by a supernatural being vision to go to point A At point A, he is told to go to point B, from where he is told to go to point C, from [...]

    16. Well I only read this because hey Watership Down got me all emotional over rabbits and well this was the sequel so of course I was going to read it, and well each chapter of this is a small separate story and well some of them where great others not so much so yeah I was hoping for a continuation from the first book maybe a where are the characters now sort of thing but I didn t get that.A summery for Tales from Watership Down Tales From Watership Down begins with some of the great folk stories [...]

    17. This was worse than I remembered it, actually Having recently re read Watership Down, I was really struck by how lightweight and inconsequential the stories in this book seemed Even most of the tales of El ahrairah lacked the mythic quality that Adams was so adept at evoking in the original book The one that bothered me in particular was the first story in the book, which tells of how El ahrairah gained the sense of smell for his people What really annoyed me about it was that none of the other [...]

    18. A pleasant dessert to the main helping of Watership Down, I was than glad for this return to the rabbit warrens I certainly felt like these short stories, despite Mr Adams refutations, were of an even directly allegorical and didactic nature than the original book Regardless of whether they were meant to be instructional or not, these little expansions felt like they were than I deserved extra but not extraneous, I suppose The same literate, direct voice shines through in the writing and my r [...]

    19. I didn t love it as much as the original, but was definitely excited to read about my favorite rabbits I think it would have flowed better if he had incorporated the stories of El ahrairah into character and plot development of the Watership rabbits I really liked how he did that with the original book I was surprised to know that Adams had written a sequel as he wrapped things up pretty well in Watership Down However, this book sort of opens up a lot of new potential story lines and leaves me [...]

    20. I m disappointed I can only give this book a 3 because I love Watership Down I found part 1 and part 2 of this book lacklustre The stories of El hahrairah were OK but had the consistent same theme of fulfilling a quest and after the first few stories it became a little boring I really enjoyed part 3 which provided some updates on events that happened after the en of Watership Down I really liked these stories and I loved revisiting old characters However I found some of the time lines a bit hard [...]

    21. One of the most purely fun books I ve read since I was a kiddie Each short story is a real page turner a glimpse into a secret world of adventure, life, and death Anybody up for a game of Burrows Bunnies Map of the down maps.google maps f qs

    22. I did not enjoy this nearly as much as the original book The stories describing the further adventures of the Watership rabbits were enjoyable, but the El ahrairah stories, not so much Overall, these seemed to lack the joyful vibrancy of the original book How about trying some Watership Down fanfic instead

    23. I loved the original book, definitely 5 stars This one was not so much a sequel but just a visit back to Watership Down to see what the rabbits were up to in between Woundwart s defeat the end of the first novel Nothing groundbreaking definitely not as deep as the first novel, but it is a light diversion for some pleasant reading about characters we ve come to love Some of it works and some of it doesn t If you loved the first book, then do check it out but don t expect too much.

    24. Dato che con La valle dell orso gli andata buca, Adams ha pensato bene che gli conveniva ritornare ai conigli della famosa collina Facendo cilecca un altra volta Poi, per quanto ne so, rimasto zitto Cosa di cui gli sono estremamente grata.

    25. When I first read this I thought it was just a nice little story about rabbits Little did I realize that when I became mature it would be an allegory of different types of governments It s still a nice story about rabbits too

    26. Re read in memorium for Richard Adams a mature work, with less rigid boundaries keeping him within the world of Watership however as delightful and warm as Watership Richard Adams My heart has joined the Thousand, for my friend has stopped running todayrst read 4 05

    27. This book was crap I enjoyed Watership Down so much that I guess I had higher expectations I gave up reading half way through because the stories are terrible and it had a very different half baked feel compared to the original Watership Down story Moving on to something else

    28. Why did I read this I don t know, I have no excuse The original was not my cuppa tea, so what was I thinking Hopefully that thiswould be better Not really just over same Bunnies with angst.

    29. It doesn t quite match the impact of the original novel, but it s a welcome and well written return to the world and characters of Watership Down
