RICHARD ADAMS, A BRITISH CIVIL SERVANT in his early fifties, made a startling leap into prominence in 1972 with his first novel, Watership Down, which immediately established itself as a classic of fantasy literature. Shardik, however, was none of those things. The much-awaited new book, when it appeared, was a fierce, brutal novel of the sort that no one today would regard as appropriate for young readers, even though young readers for generations have responded to the ferocity, overt or covert, of such "children's books" as Pinocchio, Ivanhoe, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Through the Looking-Glass.

Lest any should suppose that I set my wits to work to invent the cruelties of Genshed, I say here that all lie within my knowledge and some – would they did not – within my experience
Lest any should suppose that I set my wits to work to invent the cruelties of Genshed, I say here that all lie within my knowledge and some – would they did not – within my experience. Behold, I will send my messenge. ut who may abide the day of his coming? And who shall stand when he appeareth? For he is like a refiner's fire.
Richard Adams was talented, no one can deny that. Just like in Watership Down, the vivid descriptions and carefully-crafted allusions come in contrast with the intriguing plot and the well-developed characters, building a beautiful pattern and resulting in a compelling narration. Unfortunately, the positives of this book end here.

But Adams’s regard for the book extends beyond the reinforcement of a hoped-for career change.
I knew then that writing was to become my full-time occupation, and I was able to leave the civil service for good. But Adams’s regard for the book extends beyond the reinforcement of a hoped-for career change
