Review: The Goshawk

The Goshawk
The Goshawk by T.H. White
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was one of the books that I had to read for O-Level English literature, and it was the only really interesting one out of the set. (These were the UK school exams for 16 year-olds back in the early ’70s).

This is a role model for those who would practice the craft of writing great literature. The language is so descriptive and captivating and really pulls the reader in to experience the emotions of the author.

We were told that this is NOT the way to train a falcon, but it is a brilliant account of patience and the relationship between a man and a bird.
