Ironic Contradictions

I'm a long time reader - since way back when I was seven. That makes it over three quarters of my life that I will be a reader for. But it is worth it. When I'm not reading or wasting my time online on here or Goodreads I'll be off playing video games, studying teaching and messing around with friends and pop culture. Or reading some more.
Watership Down - Richard Adams I read this as a child...well it wasn't that long ago really now that I think about it but hey...

Watership Down is a novel that stays with you. The way Richard Adams writes his story is brillant and it really is a beautiful and gripping read for any age. The one thing I love about Narnia is that it can be read by the young and the old. Watership Down is the same, any age group can read it and fall in love with this other world. Isn't that why we read? To 'hold eternity in the palm of your hand'* and to truly live? That is what Watership Down evokes for the reader and that is why it is a simply remarkable text.
