    What did you like best about Great Speeches of the 20th Century? What did you like least?

    Obviously, it's quality content. But, it would be nice to know the "who/when/where" of each of the speeches. Many are obvious, but there are more than a few that I couldn't pick out.

    Additionally, the chaptering doesn't seem to coincide with the speeches. One chapter contains more than one speech.

    Fiver could sense danger. Something terrible was going to happen to the warren; he felt sure of it. They had to leave immediately. So begins a long and perilous journey of survival for a small band of rabbits. As the rabbits skirt danger at every turn, we become acquainted with the band, its humorous characters, and its compelling culture, complete with its own folk history and mythos.

    What did you love best about Watership Down?

    Richard Adams' Watership Down has long been a favorite of mine, and I was recently able to pass it on to my young kids (ages 8 and 6) via this audio book. In lesser hands, the kids would have been bored by the pastoral descriptions and frequent trips down the rabbit hole of Lapine language and culture. Ralph Cosham, however, pulled it off with aplomb. Perhaps it was the British accent. Perhaps it was his staccato, baritone delivery. Either way, he deftly led them (and me) through the forest, in and out of Strawberry's warren, up to the hills of Watership Down, and to Efrafra and back again, with subtle voicings for the different characters that conveyed personality without overdone affectation. Great stuff!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Watership Down?

    Classic Joseph Campbell myth with a deus ex machina cherry on top!


    What does Ralph Cosham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Warm tones and subtle character voicings.


    Who was the most memorable character of Watership Down and why?

    Bigwig - His journey toward responsibility mirrored the physical journey.
