Shardik is a powerful work, dipping deep into old forms allegory, epic, myth resonating in the caverns of the readers’ unconscious…
It is an exciting story, the adventures compelling.’ Los Angeles Times ‘Grips with suspense, haunts with mystery…
a memorable work, not to be read once only but to be reread as loved books are…
a human saga.’ The Wall Street Journal Richard Adams’s Watership Down was a number one bestseller, a stunning work of the imagination, and an acknowledged modern classic.

Mighty, ferocious, and unpredictable, Shardik changes the life of every person in the story. His advent commences a momentous chain of events.
