Tales from Watership Down is a collection of legends and short stories that flesh out the history of the rabbits of Watership Down and continue their story after the events of the original novel. I personally had never read any of Richard Adams works prior to this (I have seen the animated film adaptation of Watership Down however, so was fairly familiar with the events and plot.) I was very impressed with how quickly I was drawn into Adams' world. His writing style is very easy to slip into and I found this collection of tales extremely difficult to put down. Mr. Adams has created a social world amongst his rabbits that is as totally believable and feels as fleshed out as Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, albeit Adams world only exists in the one novel and this compilation of short stories. I don't know why I've never read any of his works before as they have always been favorites of my step-father and accessible to me throughout my lifetime, but now that I have sampled his writing, I'm more than eager to delve into more.

I loved this book and the first one! I think its funny how the bunnies have thier own religion. My favorite characters are El-aharia(i probably mispelled that), bigwig, and blackberry and pimpkin. But its sooo sad how hazel dies at the end of the first book.

not quite as good as the first book but still great. fans of watership down will almost certainly love it.(be sure to read 'speedwell's story'!)

Aside from one or two bits, I must cofess that I was extremely disappointed in this book. I felt that in an attempt to add on to an already complete story, Richard Adams got to modern and ceased to remain true to his original characters. It does however include the complete story of 'The Fox And The Water' that Bluebell tells the to rest of the rabbits when Efrafa is attacking the warren. So it's probably worth at least one read if you are a real Watership fan.

I love rabbits and watership down, so i think that the book is great!!! It is sometimes a little boring, but i think that this is an awesome book becauz the bunnies have their own belif, just like us. This book is my third fav. BOOK. Children in third grade might not like it ( and im saying MIGHT). This book was totaly exsiteing for me, and at night i did not want to stop reading it!! Like i said, it was an awesome book and i loved it, but it was boring in some parts.

For the people talking about reading it to thr children, this is a book mostly for adults. Kids might not want to get tjis read to them because theyre just kids! I read ths book in just two days in fourth grde and understood it perfectly. So stop complaining about how its a horrible read for children. It is the best book ever and I would suggest it to anyone.

I really like this book. At times it was slightly dullish, it was well wrote. I liked part 2 the best because it contunes the first book with a new tale. So pleade read the whole book.

I bought this book because I love the 1st book.This was so dissapointing and boring.I thought it was gonna be like watership down not just them telling stories of what happened in the 1st book.

Tales From Watership Down is a (for lack of a better word) different book. I loved it because it doesn't really have a plot. It's just some more stories about my favorite character, El-ahrairah. Richard Adams has, once again, provided readers of all ages a truthful book about how rabbits actually live(apart from the speaking and the lapine religion stuff).

Rabbits seem to have their own way to live in a civilized world. The way these rabbits have such good freindships among one another really brings this book together as a group of rabbits that sit around and tell stories of other rabbits and what the other rabbits have done. There are some really fasinating stories told by the rabbits that are unbeleiveable. This is a story book for young kids and should be read to young kids. But I would'nt pick this book to read to one of my kids. It's not an exciting book at all.
