Book Description:

Poor writing is in the eye of the beholder, I suppose, to some extent. To help readers judge for themselves, here is a quote from page 2: “Late May on a hillside in Orkney: nowhere I would rather be. It is a place running with birds. Curlews with their rippling song and long delicate bills and the young short-eared owls keeking from their hideout in the heather. And all that heft and noise of goose.”

This, to me, is evocative, gorgeous, and brings the scene vividly alive. It is anything but poor writing in my view.

I enjoyed the book tremendously.
