I just finished reading Watership Down, and I don't know how all of these people around me have not read it and can just go about their days

Guys. Should I re-read Watership Down, Moby Dick, or read some Joe R. Lansdale for the first time?

Reading Watership Down as a grown-up much less traumatic than watching it as a child. #woundwortptsd

Do people still read Watership Down? As a 12 year old, that book was huge for me. Loved it.

@booksandgrades Ever read Watership down? And WHY WHY WHY would you have seventeen apparently free-roaming lapids?

Do kids even read Watership Down anymore? Read it in high school, it was a total game changer for me.

@hippydave never did watch the film as a kid, but yes, watership down was one of the really important books I read, up there with LOTR….
HippyDave
Both the film & the book of "Watership Down" remain very special to me. Well, don't *you* well up every time you hear "Bright Eyes"? C'mon.

@john_overholt Ex-MIL always described books as 'it's about people.' I started carrying Watership Down just to say 'it's about rabbits.'

@carolinelawrenc Just got Thieves of Ostia to read to my eight year old as soon as we finish Watership Down. He loves Roman history!

For me, Watership Down might be the greatest, but A Wizard Of Earthsea, The Jungle Books & The Little Prince run it close...@guardianbooks

About to start Watership Down again (annual event). If you've not read it since childhood, have another read. Truly wonderful. #amreading

@kellydomara Watership Down is one of my fave books of all time. Read and reread as a kid! Heavy content though for sure.

Lapine, the language of rabbits, is introduced in Richard Adams classic adventure novel Watership Down. http://t.co/iDGdT0lye1

@sarahpinborough Awesome use of Lapine! That would have passed me by if I hadn’t reread Watership Down last year.

@lisahopesays good positive words. I was just reading that Watership Down, Peter Rabbit, and Jonathan Livingston's Seagull were all rejects.

@pvponline Absolutely. Have re-read The Hobbit and LotR a number of times, and Watership Down the most.
