Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from "Enjoyable, though flawed" As someone who considers the original to be his favourite ever book, Tales From Watership Down, I'd say, is only a partial success. It was great to be in the company of Hazel and chums one last time, but it doesn't hold up to the original. This time around, the book is technically a short story collection, either detailing the lives of the main protagonists after the Woundwort-era, or further adventures with their rabbit God El-ahrairah. All the stories are enjoyable to an extent, but there are several that feel rather lightweight or somewhat bizarrely seem like they've been written by other people.Presumably it has also been aimed at younger audience as neither the prose on display lacks the style and depth of the original. However its still a immense pleasure to read and I don't regret picking up a copy. Just don't expect it exceed what came before.
