The Crying Bird Reviews
Funny books are so hard to come by these days. Wait, let me rephrase that. Good, clean, funny, PG books are hard to come by these days. Every once in a while I will read a book with a funny part, and it is refreshing. This book fits that bill. Sure, it's about a woman that has lost her family, and that is sad, but it doesn't dwell on it. Isn't that how it is in real life? Don't we deal with death, and then keep living? Or that is how it's supposed to work. The main character, May Johnson, does exactly what we all want to do when we lose someone close to us. She shuts down. When she finally gets enough of her little sister trying to help her, she runs away. Again, wouldn't we all like to do that sometimes?This is a story that many of us can relate to. It is a little sad, but it is also, fast-paced, witty and heartwarming! You not only get May Johnson's point of view as the griever, but you also get the point of view of her sister, as the caregiver. There are unlikely friendships, good deeds, and conversations with a bird. Please tell me that you talk to animals too.This is E.J. Stillings debut novel, and it is a winner! I absolutely love this book! I will be suggesting this book to my IRL book club, and I just know they will love it!I received a copy of this book from E.J. Stillings in exchange for my honest review.Come read my bird story that happened the day I finished The Crying Bird. Kinda crazy!
Great book. I couldn't put it down and was anxious to see the poor main character rise from her pain. She made me laugh and cry. I hope to see more books from this author in the future. She is a wonderful storyteller.
