Watership Down, by Richard Adams
I read and reviewed this book in August, 2002, just after I joined Bookcrossing. I'm sorry I didn't make a note saying where I got it. I don't think it was new, but in any case, I don't have it anymore.
Very good! I thoroughly enjoyed it! An allegorical story about a colony of wild rabbits in the English countryside, and how they are affected by man's "progress" and different styles of societal culture (autocratic dictatorship, democracy, benevolent captivity). Mr. Adams does a great job of endowing these rabbits and other animals with engaging personalities. The reader can't wait to find out what happens next.
