I have only read the original WSD (and a chapter from the sequel before I got busy). Happy birthday, oh you god of literature!

I've only read Watership Down, but I plan on reading all of his books eventually.

I've read Watership Down, The Plague Dogs, and a good chunk of Shardik. Plague Dogs is my favorite, much as I love Watership down. Shardik was really good, but my God it's dense stuff. Layers and layers of description. So much so that it might turn a lot of people off. It's a very big world and you're gonna see as much of it as Adams can get in there. I should get back to it one of these days.

So far, I've only read WD and TFWD.  I've got an ebook of Shardik, but I didn't start reading it yet.

96 - wow! Happy Birthday, Richard Adams!

I've read WSD (of course!) and sequel, and The Plague Dogs. Shardik didn't initially interest me because of the subject matter. But maybe if I see if cheap somewhere, I'll give it a go.

Such joy he brought all of us, and he brought us together.
