Adam, St Anselm's Readers


Don't be put off by the dark sounding title- there is no modern gothic here, but a really engaging piece of life writing- something which many readers will recognize and empathize with. McGowan has created a narrator with an authentic voice; it has the feeling of conversation throughout. The range of characters are distinct and identifiable. I do feel that the rook symbolism could have been a little more explicit/explored for the age group, but that is my only criticism. Overall: 7/10.
