Birdy by William Wharton! Some passages made me cringe but I’m not sure it’s only down to my own prejudices.

May 20, Waugh Wright rated it it was amazing. It’s definitely worth a read. Kori added it Jul frubo, This book was really weird, and had a lot of “plot twists”. David rated it really liked it May 27, I love all books of the author I read so far and while I know that his style is not easy to digest, it requires deep consideration and thinking, I was definitely not prepared for this book.


Dispatched from the UK in 3 business days When will my order arrive? William believes with all his heart that Franky really exists and upon fin I’m not someone into war themes, especially reading them so the war flashback at the early part of the book was a vranky hard for me to get through but before I knew it, I was so hooked into fganky book. I can’t believe the man who wrote the wonderful novels Birdy and A Midnight Clear could write such a convoluted, contrived, just-plain-silly fantasy novel.

Please provide an email address. Dec 05, Shauna Ufrbo rated it really liked it. I absolutely loved this book. The stories that William tells his children when growing up read like excellent childrens stories, so it at times feels as if you are indeed reading a childrens book. Books by William Wharton.
