Watership Down by Richard Adams

I've been meaning to finish this book since 1977/1978 when I started reading it but couldn't get pass the first few chapters.

Mmm...cake. The biggest thing I got out of "How to Eat a Cupcake" was that I wanted to go and eat a bunch of them.
Hahahaha! Thanks for the giggles!

I'm sorry for virtually sneezing somewhere possibly near you!

I have no interest in revisiting this one. Lord of the Rings starring rabbits. Just never could get into it. Like you, I could not get past the first few chapters.

PS I have that problem with a lot of Brit writers, for some reason. Must be because I am of French descent.

Long ago I read it cover to cover. Did not move me the way 1984 did. Just one of those tings, I guess.

I'm 80% in on Defending Jacob and, while I want to know how it resolves, I don't want it to end. I'm not sure why it's taken me such a long time to get around to reading this -- it's an excellent book.

I think I have read it three times, Dawn. It's one of my "go to" books when I can't settle on a new one.
Man oh man, the book just wrecks me but it's so well written with such an interesting story that I feel at home with it.

I found an author I really like. Manel Loureiro. The author is Spanish (in Spain) and the books are in English. Now, his genre is not for everyone. He writes about the zombie apocalypse. There is a series of 3 books so far. I don't care about zombies but I do love stories of survival and this author is right on the money with his descriptions. Plus, our hero has a wonderful cat named Lucullus who lives with and travels with our hero. I love that cat and I even wrote to the author telling him that if he ever killed off Lucullus he would lose a reader.

I just finished it.

Whoa!

I wish that it had ended before the last two parts:

Spoiler

1. The girl disappearing in Jamaica.
2. The mother driving the car into the abutment.


but it was very, very well written and definitely a fascinating story.
