These Duncton books reach a new low. Since Horwood clearly didn't take the trouble to write anything worth reading, I shall not take the trouble to complete a full review. I will merely point out the following: these books are not, under any circumstances, for children. I worry that the tagline comparing them with Watership Down will cause younger readers to pick them up.

Here are the reasons they shouldn't:

Overt torture scenes.

Explicit mole sex scenes.

At least two instances of rape, one involving a father towards his son.

Disgustingly brutal fight scenes.

A couple of really obscene death scenes.

Avoid. Please.
