To Shoot or Not to Shoot

I shoot arrows, mess around in the garden, feed the birds and walk the hills.

The True Tale of the Monster Billy Dean

The True Tale of the Monster Billy Dean - David Almond Another which should have 3.5 stars. I did enjoy it very much but my attention wandered towards the end so I can't quite give it 4. The curious spelling gave me no trouble but offered an odd conflict between the words on the page which gained an interesting oddity - and the words heard in my head, which by contrast seemed very ordinary. I first encountered David Almond's work as a reading by the author and I always 'hear' his books in a way I don't do with others - so sadly the ordinary heard words won out in the end over the oddness of the written word.
