The Birds Began to Sing is a book of discovery, for both the protagonist, Alice, and the reader. I kept guessing, thinking up various theories but never really sure which one would solve the mystery. As it turned out, none of my ideas were right! But after the mystery is solved, the discovery continues as it hits you what this meant and that meant, the subtle hints here and there, and the reason why the author chose certain names and symbols and what the title means beyond the simple surface explanation. You could read it at face value and be thoroughly entertained, but you could also sit and think about it all.
And as usual in Dillon’s work, there is the fight between good and evil, well-written and exhilarating at the climax. What a magical work of art! You’re really missing out if you don’t read this one.
A curious writing competition in an old stately home seems to be Alice's big break, yet it soon becomes a thrilling fight to the death as Alice confronts her inner demons to find her true self. With underlying supernatural themes, coupled with conspiracy and murder, the plot seems far-fetched at times, but Dillion cleverly ties up all the lose ends creating a complex though credible story that silences the skeptic. He has once again created a fast-paced literary experience that unfolds very much like a film. I can imagine seeing it at the cinema in years to come!
"I used to think there was no point in telling a story without having something to say," Alice concludes... "but now I believe there is no point in having something to say, unless you can tell it in a story." Dillon has much to say, and you will find his concerns for the future of the world embedded throughout the narrative, never in a preachy kind of way, but sufficient to create awareness of issues that could well threaten today's society. Well written, poetic in places, funny at times and with a plot that will keep you turning the pages, The Birds Began to Sing, makes for great reading.
I will say that it is an excellent psychological thriller where Alice, the main character, fights her own delusions as well as attempting to evade people who have a distinctly unfriendly attitude toward her existence!
A great read from start to finish that kept me turning the pages right to the end...
