I have to say, I *loved* Watership Down. None of Adams' other works really grabbed me, but that one absolutely enthralled me. Read it all in one sitting.

First read it when I was nine or ten; now participating in rmc28's readthrough, which has been interrupted by health issues but now seems back on track.
