Watership Down author Richard Adams dies aged 96!!!!
The author of Watership Down, Richard Adams, has died aged 96, his daughter has said.

The tear-jerking children's classic about a group of rabbits in search of a new home after the destruction of their warren was first published in 1972.

The tale, first told by Adams on a long car journey with his daughters, turned into a best-seller.
Adams, a civil servant from Newbury in Berkshire, also wrote Shardik, The Plague Dogs and The Girl in a Swing.
Watership Down, which he wrote when he was 52, won the Carnegie Medal for children's fiction in the year of publication.

Tens of millions of copies have since been sold around the world.

'Cherished book'

A statement on a website devoted to the book, Watership Down Enterprises, said: "Richard's much-loved family announce with sadness that their dear father, grandfather, and great-grandfather passed away peacefully at 10pm on Christmas Eve."
His death was marked with a passage from his best-known work.

Is this a joke?

George Michael, Carrie Fisher, and Richard Adams all die and go to heaven:

Watership down is a classic novel. And the movie is just as good. Which is rare. I have all of his novels on my bookshelf. Phenomenal writer.

Just a matter of time before Disney remakes it and totally fucks it up with agenda laden bullshit.

I saw the movie as a kid. It disturbed and upset me.

Well, the guy lived a long life. Good for him. On to his next adventure.
