The narrator was great I could go to 3x and have no problem understanding. I love the end of the book when Hazel sits in his burrow and has an "unexpected guest" actually made me cry in the end partially because it was over and partially because it was such a great end.
did not dissapoint. courage, honour, noblitiy, and a bunch of rabbits.
The performace is one of the best I've seen, all the characters are given their own voice. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and it's a bit of a tear jerker. I think my rabbit shooting days are over.
I read this book years ago as a teenager. It stuck with me all these years. I purchased the Audible version and listening to it really made it come alive! The performance was outstanding! It's hard to believe that a book about rabbits could be so incredible!!!
Far exceedingly beyond my expectitati on. The author has brought a new world for generations. The reader could not have done any better.
A true joy.
Say something about yourself!
My father could not get interested in rabbit protagonists. He rates the audiobook 3/3/2. I changed his rating because I reckoned with that opinion he probably didn't have much stock in the matter either way, where my stronger opinion on the subject might be of more help to readers.
Meanwhile, I've listened to or read this book 4-5 times in the past fourteen years. The book didn't really speak to me when I first read it about age 12, but something stuck with me such that when I thought about it years later I wanted to read it again. And then again. And then again... I think what calls me back every time is the characters' interplay and how they handle themselves together. Quite notably to a professional historian and life-long fan of video games, I have argued that the climactic battle of this work is one of my favorite battles in any medium.
But I cannot put such a fine point on why I keep rereading this book; maybe I'll think more about that this go around. Overall the work has a distinct flavor which I have wanted again when I've thought about it every few years. I think this is my 5th go with it, so I think it will now or soon be the book I have read the largest number of times. I don't know why I will stop rereading it in years to come. I don't feel like I will stop wanting to reread it anymore than I expect that after a certain number of meals I will not want to go again to that one memorable restaurant. Since I would not think to call it a "favorite," that fact seems the more significant to me.
A pleasant ,suspenseful and engaging journey with the rabbits .Reminds me of my childhood story time but for adults .If I had a young child I would read this aloud with them.

This is one of those books that's wildly popular for a reason. Richard Adams himself says there is no deeper hidden meaning here, that it's just "a story about rabbits", but it's so GOOD, so well imagined!
For years, readers have found in it an allegory for totalitarianism, a statement against fascism, a sort of Aesop's Fable teaching us about the power of equality and brotherhood...
But in the end, it's just a really ripping good story...about rabbits.
