The Boy and The Crow by Brendan Walsh
Another Young Adult book for my shelf: The Boy and The Crow by Brendan Walsh. The author sent this a year ago in exchange for an honest review. So here it goes...
Readability: It is easy to read from start to finish. Needless to say, the plot is not too complicated. There were a lot of twists and turns in this book which I think added a 'wow factor' for me. I didn't find any quotable quotes that I can relate to but, in the end, I somehow learned to love the story because... I'm an animal lover! I just love any story that involves human and animal good interaction and connection with each other.
Character Development: Yes. The story started out with Daniel being with wrong guys, being thrown into the farm with his grandparents as a punishment, hated being in there, learned a few things, learned to live a new life. So along the way there was clearly a character development for the protagonist.
Visuals: I was captivated with the visuals at the end chapters of the story. Especially with those scenes where a murder of crows were in action. It was splendid!
Overall: It's a very nice story to read. Although the plot is very easy to manipulate for the author, it was kind of inspiring somehow because that's how life is. We get into trouble, get punishments, distance ourselves and then finally find ourselves transformed for the better. Easy read! A good read!
