This was my favorite movie as a child, but I had forgotten the name of the movie over the years. This year I discovered that my favorite childhood movie was indeed called “Watership Down.” I made it a quest to read the book and as I read it the childhood images flooded back into my memory.
Within the first few pages the adventure already begins. The action does not stop throughout the whole book. I have not felt such urgency to complete a book since I read “Tender is the Night” by F. Scott Fitzgerald nearly two years ago. Needless to say I have spent every free moment of the last two days reading it. I do not regret it. This is now easily one of my favorite books.
