"a sensory experience"
Extraordinary.Remarkable piece of writing. Stick with it and give yourself over to the world of Billy Dean, it pays off.
"Amazing, but i wouldnt give it to an under 16"
Someone mentioned this before but do not read this book if it is your first David Almond book. Read a different one first. Also, in my opinion, if youre under 16, wait before reading.
This was a beautifully written story which touched on life, death, after life, God and more. The only problem was that it was really dark, and very sad at times. With all Almond books though you see a light at the end of the tunnel and I feel that I better know how to choose the way to live and love life.
Great experience listen to Audio book, continue to explore more, there are lots of good audios available
