I loved it!
Oy... the raving reviews drew me in... I tried to stay with it, I really did. If you are a naturalist with an Anglophile’s sensibility, you may love this book. I did not.
A forlorn woman's memoir of bereavement begins well, with her memories and comparisons with the life of TH White, but her constant evaluation of every thought, word, and deed quickly becomes tedious, as she slowly devolves into grim self-indulgence and an excuse to behave badly.At first I had compassion for her, but by the end I disliked her justification for every sort of rudeness and demands on other people. Would not recommended this book unless one has a particular interest in training hawks.
The first time I listened to this book, I didn't like it very much. The narrator's voice did not hold my interest. I decided to listen to it again and to listen intently. This time I find the book captivating. If ins the information about Hawks / Goshawks very interesting. I am enjoying the author's story along with T.H. White's story . So glad I gave it a second chance!
