Well I think that WD is one of the best books written in the last 50 years or so myself. I can understand why some people may have a problem with it but It is just as inspiring to me as LOTR in some ways. I can see how those people who do not have an imagination could think it was dumb, but I thought Dan rj had some imagination. I guess I was wrong.<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0> Maybe you should read it again and this time add a little imagination. Anyway I think it has a great many themes to it that some of the "classics" also have in them. It is alot more than just a book about "stoopid rabbits" for sure!!!!! And I think that anyone who cannot see beyond this is Stoopid too! <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0> So there!!!<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0>

yeah!!! what he said..<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> BTW Gaffer, I personally have no idea why someone would have a problem with it!! I can't see their side at all. Dan's just poking at us with a stick. He's a closet WD lover and he knows it.<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> Come out Dan!! It's OK!! You have friends here to welcome you with open paws and waggy furry bunny pom pom tails. It's OK. Really it is.<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Actually Gwen, I'll wager most of the posters on this thread actually do like WD. They're just trying to get you worked up a bit, that's all <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0>

Hooray for bunnies! Yay!<BR><BR>I really liked WD. These aren't cute and fluffy rabbits in the story, these are butt-kicking bad news bunnies! Fear them! <BR><BR>BTW- what does "appaulingly" mean? Is this some kind of anti-Gentile, Damascene sentiment? Explain yourself!

Was there a cartoon made of that? I think I remember watching a cartoon about rabbits fighting each other when I was very little and itscared me to death because it was so bloody. *Shudder* bad memory. <BR><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0><BR>

Watership down is a example of a book that made the transition to film fairly well with the minimum of cuts. Might we compare it with lord of the Rings for cuts: what was lost, and was it worth it?

And down came the good FFerret, and she siad...

well, okay, she's not really going to say much at all that really pertains to this thread...

She's actually just bumping it up for nostalgic reasons.

That's not so bad, is it?

I mean, after all, Watership Down was a splendid work.. Even if it was about stupid rabbits...

(Frith loves FFerrets best, anyways)
