Top Customer Reviews
Mark Stewart's stories look at the fates of, amongst others, a shark, whale, rabbit, squirrel, polar bear, rhino and elephant. Creatures great and small and all hunted or mistreated in some way.
When the author approached me to ask me to review this book I asked him if it would break my heart. He said no, but that I might shed a tear. I didn't do that but I felt an overwhelming sadness. The stories are very literary in style, quite wordy and I struggled with that a bit, but they're also lyrical and moving and it's obvious Stewart cares deeply about the natural world.
I've long been a supporter of various animal charities, finding it hard to comprehend the cruelty in the world. If you care too then you may find these stories well worth a read. Not an easy read at all but the reader is put right into the heart of each story, imagining how each creature feels. It's heartbreaking stuff and The Absence of Wings is an important lesson to us all in how to behave and how not to behave.
