I LOVED Watership Down, but I didn't particularly care for this book. The first section is rabbits telling stories about El-ahrairah, but they didn't show his real cunning like they did in Watership Down. They also told about some of their adventures, which was kind of interesting. The second section tells about what happened to El-ahrairah after he met with the Black Rabbit of Inle. It had a depressing ending though. The third section was ok. It was full of several stories about the original rabbits from Watership Down. Sadly, Richard Adams did not write in the compelling style he used in his first book. Also, the stories were not connected very well and were not as intriguing as the original book. Overall, I would say it was an OK book but definitely not the best.

I liked the third section of the book the best: continuation of what happened to the brave rabbits and their community on Watership Down. Various rabbits tell additional fairy tales, some quite dark--I didn't find this section to be as well-written as the rest.
