I've never read the book, but Watership Down is still one of only two films to ever make me cry, so for that I hate him. The other film was The Pianist and I hate Polanski too but for different reasons.

Watership Down is of my top five favorite books, ever. My copy is more ragged than Blackavar's ears from all the times I've re-read it. I'd be sorry to see Adams go, but if the Black Rabbit decides it's your time, "there is no bargain. What is, is what must be."

I overheard a hilarious exchange in a public library between a couple with young children in the DVD section. The mother suggested getting out this lovely animated film about bunny rabbits for their offspring to watch, the reaction from her husband was an emphatic no as he had obviously been traumatised by this movie as boy and he reacted as though she had suggested they rent a snuff movie.

Its probably quiet because he's shown no signs of ill health! (That we know of)

 

Recent Adams updates include him letting the BBC do a four part adaptation of Watership Down, and he gave two print press interviews around Christmas. He still writes, his memory is apparently still sharp, and while he may snuff it tomorrow due to age, there's little talk on here because he's pottering on doing the same stuff he has for the last few decades!

 

 

Here he is last November, incidentally.

He seems to have been a lot quieter in the last year, which tells its own story, given he was quite active at meet and greets and interviews and the like well into this decade.

The problem was that nobody expected a film in that style of animation to be so explicitly violent.
