Richard Adams Q&A

I don't know how much people will care for this piece of information but anyway, I will explain.

Some years ago on the Reddit forums Richard Adams did a Questions and Answers with people.

A lot of them were about Watership Down.

A lot were also about other novels that he had written and that people remember but most were about Watership Down.

He seemed to very grateful for the questions and happily gave his responses.

I saw it. :)

If he had... survived to do another one, I might have even participated.

I found it last year just going through the internet. Me and one of my Real-Life friends found it and we found it surprisingly amusing that he actually did it because I don't know of any elderly people over a certain age who use a hip modern savvy site like Reddit to connect to their audiences.

Link to first AMA

Link to second AMA

I'm not on Reddit, but if I had known he was doing that while it happened (instead of finding out a while later), I would have participated.

They were interesting reads, and I learned some interesting things :)

I'm actually thrown back by the fact that he made another one.

I suspect that the fans were very surprised that he actually found time to be on Reddit at all.
