I'm Watership Down!
You're Watership Down!
by Richard Adams
Though many think of you as a bit young, even childish, you're
actually incredibly deep and complex. You show people the need to rethink their
assumptions, and confront them on everything from how they think to where they
build their houses. You might be one of the greatest people of all time. You'd
be recognized as such if you weren't always talking about talking rabbits.

I read Watership Down for the first time in the seventh or eighth grade--I can't remember which. I came to it a little later than my other favorite childhood books (The Hobbit, the Chronicles of Narnia, anything by Madeleine L'Engle). But the tale of Hazel and his prophetic Fiver and the evil General Woundwort stayed with me. I can't think of a book I would rather be, except maybe Jane Eyre.
