book: Tales from Watership Down

Richard Adams. Tales from Watership Down. Avon, 1998 (originally published 1996). 335 pages.

A completely unnecessary book. It’s pleasant, and a fast read, but has no focus. The first two thirds are stories from rabbit folklore. I liked those bits in Watership Down, but here, where they’re standing on their own instead of telling me about the world of the characters I’m reading about, they just seem kind of pointless. The final third of the book is even worse. It’s equally disconnected, without the excuse of actually being unrelated stories. The book just sort of rambles on aimlessly, then stops.

5/10 (Indifferent).
