Howdy Warren
« on: December 10, 2019, 12:24:20 AM »
Hello, you may call me Z or Totem.  I am not a fan of Tales from Watership Down, feeling it isn't a true sequel and more a midequel, but you take what you can get you know, especially with the author being dead.  Watership Down was my first foray into Richard Adams and I have to say I enjoy watching the series on YouTube of Watership Down though the cartoon feel of the animation/characters took a while to get used to, resulting in me liking the Netflix miniseries better, given they actually look like rabbits.  I'm an adult and my first version of Watership Down book was



yet the book I have now is the following after the above was torn apart by I think my sister.



Around my early thirties I discovered The Plague Dogs on YouTube and found that depressing, though I have not read the book.  I used to have Tales of Watership Down but I do not have that book anymore.    I like writing and drawing as well as gaming on my PS4, I'm token_moccassin on there as my PS account. Anyway, that's pretty much all I can really think of.

Hi Z!

You sound like you've hit all the right media.  Tales from Watership Down feels like part appendix, part Silmarillion, and part sequel to me, and I wished it was a lot more of the latter.  It seemed like it was going to go that route the last third of the book, but then turned into a bunch more short stories.  The first cover of yours is what I have on my current copy, so I have to say its one of my favorite.  Gotta love that lovingly drawn fur!

You started with the first work of Richard Adams, which started as a writer. It was a good start = 3     :silverweed3
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

Thank you all for the warm welcome to the site.   It's nice being able to find a website dedicated to a book I enjoy.  Sadly, Watership Down and Tales from Watership Down are the only one of Richard Adams' books I have read.   I've seen The Plague Dogs and that was horrible to watch due to being an animal lover but I haven't gotten the book yet.

I've got the Plague Dogs - found it in a second-hand shop quite a while ago, now. It's not an easy read, not only with the terrible things that the dogs go through but also with how it's put together. I didn't finish it in the end. Not sure if I've seen the film or not - as a kid, I used to watch animated films and shows quite a lot when they were on TV, so I might have caught it then.
