Wonderfully written book

I feel that the narrator did a fantastic job with this book. He really highlights the character in each of the rabbits in the book. I love the style that it is written in. I like the way that Richard Adams referred to some of the stories mentioned in Watership down (The fox in the water; The hole in the sky and some of the tales of Elahraira's journey back home from Inle'). Richard Adams has added much action to the story and so much personality to each of the characters, old and new, some even with their own backstory! 5/5 from me. A highly recommended audiobook that I begged Mum to buy for me. RIP

Pleasant stories for kids, less good for adults

The stories were okay, but a bit limited. Bigwig seems to have had a character transplant from somewhere, he wasn't the same at all!

More amazing world building

More amazing world building

Definitely recommend listening to it after Watership Down, if you miss the world and characters, it puts your heart and mind at ease to know what happens after.

A good audiobook to drift in and out of

I couldn't tell whether it was my own tiredness, the narrator's warm voice or the perhaps an unimmersive story, but I kept finding myself drifting in and out of this audiobook.
I think I might give it another to fully appreciate it.
