A Neglected Classic?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Snow Goose (Hardcover)
This is a genuine classic which has inspired much creativity among musicians, writers, teachers, artists and others over decades. However, it seems to have been neglected by many others.
I can offer this particular publication my highest recommendation for readers of all age groups. The illustrations are absolutely superb and the book offers a unique style of short story writing which is so moving that simply thinking about it as I type this makes my eyes water.
It can be read and re-read, it will never cease to provide enjoyment - a true classic!

Agreed. This is the most emotionally intense book i have ever read. In its short span it describes perfectly love, compassion, fear, beauty, heroism. Most with a sense of history will break down in tears at Gallico's succinct and perfect analogy of the men on the Dunkirk. Perfectly evokes a sense of time and place. Get this and Camel's album inspired by it and the music will provide the perfect backdrop to the reading of it.
