Well, when Vilthuril was telling us the other night about Thinial and the doe who was Chief Rabbit, I formed a very vivid picture of her in my mind," replied Bigwig, "and then when we found Flyairth in our burrow, she looked and smelled exactly as I'd imagined.

Day after day was sunny and warm. El-ahrairah used to sleep in the afternoons, while Rabscuttle kept watch for any elil who might be about.

The sequel to "Watership Down" chronicles the lives of the rabbits after the defeat of General Woundwort, from the exploits of El-ahrairah, the mythical rabbit hero, to the adventures of Hazen, Fiver, Bigwig, and their friends

In this semi-sequel to "Watership Down", Adams offers almost 20 stories for rabbit fans. They are broken up into three sections, each presenting a different type of tale. One section deals with the further adventures of Hazel and his followers. Another section dwells on stories told between rabbits about other rabbits. Finally, the bulk of the book offers extended rabbit mythology; primarily about the Prince with a Thousand Enemies.

In my opinion, the mythological stories were the most entertaining. Each helped to further develop the rabbit-centric world Adams created. It was like listening to Fiver tell stories, painting vivid descriptions of the rabbits pantheon.

To be honest, the part I was most excited to read was the weakest. After finishing "Watership", I was really looking forward to learning what happened next. To my disappointment, the majority of this section dealt with either brand new rabbits or background players. I expected to hear about Hazel, Fiver, Bigwig and Holly; but, that isn't the case. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't what I thought.

Overall, a decent addition for fans.
A mixed lot, nowhere near as good as the novel it follows. This book contains several different types of stories: the first few are tales of the mythic character "El Ahrairah" (the prince with a thousand enemies). But in Watership Down, the El Ahrairah stories are all humorous, telling how El Ahrairah used his brains, imagination, and sheer trickery to get the better of his enemies. In this book, El Ahrairah overcomes the challenges by sheer persistence, with no tricks (he pulls a minor deception on a badger, but nothing compared with the elaborate tricks he used in the mythic tales in Watership Down).

Later stories are of life in Watership Down and newly-established nearby burrow. These are much better than the El Ahrairah stories, but still not up to Watership Down. Still, I would rate the later stories as well worth reading.
Anyone who has read Watership Down and found it delightful (as I did) will probably enjoy this text as well. However, note it is not a "sequel" as is sometimes said. Four or five stories of the legendary El-ahrairah (the rabbits' Robin Hood) open the book, and then more chapters that do seem to be a continuation of the original book follow. It has Bigwig, Hazel, Fiver and most of the rest of the Watership warren rabbits. But it is nothing like the full-blown epic adventure of the original. The does play a major part in the action in this continuation, even having Hyzenthlay as "Chief Rabbit," and that may be the most meaningful improvement.
This book is best read immediately following the brilliant novel on which it is based, while you are still under it's spell. As a standalone book, it doesn't work that well. The fables organized in the first section of the book are particularly pointless on their own, though the stories in the latter part are more interesting.
My original was worn, torn and needed replacement. This is such a good book, the author takes you into the lives of rabbits and subjects you to all their adventures. I definitely would recommend this wonderful story for all.
I have just been reading some reviews of this, which go from excellent to awful in terms of how it is. I first would say that I have never encountered an author with the imagination of Mr. Adams. He is brilliant. Read WD. Read "Shardik". Read "The Plague Dogs". Read "Maia". I found the stories here wonderful and fascinating. El-ahrairah does not come off as a begger as some reviewers have said, but more of an epic hero than in WD. His journeys after the encounter with the Black Rabbit of Inle are indeed epic in scope and content. The "Rabbit's Ghost Story" was chilling and the tale of El-ahrairah's journey to the Kingdom of Yesterday, where a bison rules over all the animals and plants that were ever extinct is true genius. Enchanting writing. I found part III of the book a welcome return to much loved characters. Yes, this is not "Watership Down". Mr. Adams could never write something like that again. No one could. Trying to write a sequel to it is like someone writing a sequel to Victor Hugo's "Les Miserables" (which someone did a few years back: it was awful!) or writing a sequel to Tolstoy's "War And Peace". It just can't be done. What this book is is a wonderful companion and extension to the original story. I am further enriched by it and shall continue to look at those rabbits in the grassy meadow near my house with perpetual wonder and respect.
This is not a chronological sequel to "Watership Down." It is a series of stories on the lives of our lapine heros and a collection of their myths about their proto-hero, El-ahrairah. I like the myths as they provide insight into rabbit religion and values. The stories of Hazel and the others in the warren are like letters from friends. As the companion of a rabbit named Hayzeal, I found these stories express well the lapine mind and spirit, both at Watership Down and in my own life.I have listened to the audio cassettes narrated by Nigel Havers many times on the way to and from work. For the true friend of the Watership Down rabbits, Tales from Watership Down is indispensable.
I purchased this book as a gift, but would be embarassed to present it. The hardcover "library binding" of this edition of Tales from Watership Down (ISBN 0-613-37671-4) is of the worst quality. It is a paperback book poorly disguised as hardbound by the addition of cardboard reinforcements to the cover. The text seems to be printed on public washroom paper towels pasted together. The newspaper critcal reviews occupy a page in the front and the outside back cover. There is not just a mention of, but full page advertising for Watership Down inside the back of the book. There is no dust jacket, but then what here is worthy of protection? The pleasure of holding a hardbound volume cannot be found in this edition.
