This was a twisted, unresolved, tedious, limp imitation of Jane Eyre. Calling it a 'novel of the Revolution' was both a stretch, and hugely disrespectful. The picture on the front cover is the best part of the story. I wish there had been a way to split the star or make it a 'minus star'.
The narrator is quite articulate, but sorry to say I found the vocal tone tiresome over the long term.
I listen to Watership Down when I walk my dogs. When the story ends, I start it again. My world just works better when I keep these characters alive in my life. I owned the book in the 1970s but could never get past the first few pages. This audio version is thrilling and moving and wonderful in the best sense of performance artistry. Thank you, Richard! Thank you, Ralph!
