A tale of nature and grit in the city
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes very much so. I loved her descriptions of the natural world in the city, and the human characters are well formed too.
Any additional comments?
I loved all of this book. It is read perfectly by Clare Corbett. It is about what goes on in the 'undergrowth': in the bits of greenery that form background to our city lives and how we notice it or ignore it. The main characters are 2 children from very different backgrounds whose paths cross and a Polish man who daringly befriends one of them.Melissa Harrison's descriptions are beautiful. She writes lyrically without being sentimental.I wish Audible would have more books like this including Melissa Harrison's latest 'In Hawthorn Time'
