Not the best but still good
on 1 July 2009
Cliff McNish is an underrated children's author. His imagination is immense, which you can really see within this book. However, the book is not his best.
'Breathe' is a corageous book that looks at the effects of death and illness from an interesting angle. If you are an adult who enjoys reading childrens books I would perhaps recommend some of his other books over this one, such as Doomspell or The Silver World series.
Cliff McNish is always worth reading because he is so different from any other writer that I have read and he is brave in the risks that he takes.
