Little did I know that by reading this novel, I would be reading the spiritual ancestor to my own Gleeman’s Tales. No, I haven’t written about the journey home, or of Rabbits as they struggle against elil, and each other, to make a life for themselves. But I’ve come to discover that the way I tell my stories in the Gleeman’s Tales Duology is of a similar nature to how Dandelion weaves his stories of Frith, El-ahrairah, and Rabscuttle.
It’s early to say now, but I am sure that I will be bestowing this novel a place in my top five favorite books.

As of November 14th, 2015, I am reading Richard Adams’s speculative novel: Watership Down (yes, the one about bunnies). It’s been in my booklog for a few weeks now and I’ve finally decided to give it a go. Preliminary review-skims seem to allude to this being a memorable tale. Good. I’m ready for something lifechanging. There just hasn’t been much wow-ing me since I read Weir’s The Martian a while back.
Bring on the bunnies!
