5.0 out of 5 stars
An awesome read, 11 Jun 2004
I was prompted to buy I'm Not Scared after reading the review for the film (released 11/6/04) in The Times. Right from the outset the book grips the reader. The book is very fast paced and portrays a brutally honest account of a young boy's (Michele, 9) childhood and realisation of the evil in the world around him. The book has similarities to the Lord of the Flies, not least with the mounting of a chicken on a stick as a flag. However here it is not the children who have lost their innocence. I highly recommend this book!
