Richard Adams’s Watership Down is a timeless classic and one of the most beloved novels of all time. Set in the Hampshire Downs in Southern England, an idyllic rural landscape, this stirring tale of “suspense, hot pursuit, and derring-do” (Chicago Tribune) follows a band of rabbits in flight from the incursion of man and the destruction of their home. Led by a stouthearted pair of brothers, they travel forth from their native Sandleford warren through harrowing trials to a mysterious promised land and a more perfect society. “A marvelous story of rebellion, exile, and survival” (Sunday Telegraph) this is an unforgettable literary classic for all ages.

Why so expensive?
So before I rant, the book itself is an absolute classic...5 out of 5 stars. However, why does a story that is well over 30 years old cost $11? We're talking about an electronic copy of a book here! For that matter, why are any of these books (even new ones) more than $5? Total rip off!
This is the best best book ever written. If anybody disagrees I will punch them.
This didn't make on the classic list for nothing. All will enjoy reading, I am positive.
