I was supposed to read this book over the course of 36 weeks. It was so good that I couldn't put it down.
Set in the quaint countryside of England, Fiver has shown a surprising ability to know if something was safe or not, if something was going to end in disaster or be a blessing in disguise. One night he gets a feeling--a "mist" hanging over the entire warren (did I mention that they're rabbits?). He tells his brother, Hazel, convincing him that some unknown tragedy was going to overtake their home. Hazel pulls a small band of bucks together to make an emigration from the supposedly doomed warren to a place far away in the downs. The journey is harrowing and exciting, the fictitious culture and language of the rabbits fascinating, and the wit amusing.
There are mild expletives used in this book.
