"Richard Adams, author of the famous children's book "Watership Down," has died at the age of 96, his family said in a statement on his official website."

96 is a long full chance at making an impact on others lives which he did with this one novel alone.

RIP...


I would also point out that Watership down is not a children's book, that publication and then cartoon messed up a whole generation.. At 34 I still cannot watch it..


JESUS, I just saw the post above and instantly have shivers...... Get rid of it.... away away

Good book, liked it long ago before the land of cable, VCRs and internet. It has all the elements, prophecy, destruction slavery, freedom.

What a great book. I remember reading it when I was a child.
His works will live long beyond his time here on earth.
RIP Mr. Adams.

My heart has joined the thousand for my friend stopped running today.

A shame he is gone wonderful powerful book the film is quite tame in comparison.
did you know most of the places mentioned in the story are REAL places i live about 15 miles from
the real watership down and have walked there many times also the farm with the hutch rabbits
the iron road, ceasars belt, and i know the location that Efrafa was supposed to be.

I saw the movie, came to the conclusion that rabbits are bad @ss and went looking for the book as soon as I could find it.

Also, I missed this thread when I posted mine. I needed to do it to vent about losing Adams.
