  1. I pity the fool who read this book on the basis of the favorable reviews that assured you , this is a great book, you don t need to be interested in hawks.I read it because I am interested in hawks If I hadn t been there is no way I could have finished it.McDonald has lost her father and is deeply depressed In this context, she decided to train a gos hawk Goshawks are apparently harder to train than falcons and much of the material dealing with her hawk is interesting Unfortunately she is obsess [...]


  2. OMG this book was the worst I have read in a very long time I tried to like it, as I also lost my father and wanted to relate to Helen Macdonald But her obsession with hawks and TH White was truly over the top I wanted to follow how she worked through her grief, but every time I read a truly beautiful passage, she would wisk me back to something in TH White s history that made me want to scream If I wanted to read about TH White, I d get a biography on TH White There are some lovely moments in t [...]


  3. Some of my favourite books have been memoirs of a challenging relationship with an animal Jane Shilling s Fox in the Cupboard, Gavin Maxwell s otter oeuvre H is for Hawk belongs alongside them.If that description relationship with an animal sounds fluffy or cosy to you, think again These animals aren t pets They are forces to be negotiated with, embodiments of the wild that pitch you into a different way of life and living You don t invite an otter, a horse or a goshawk to be your friend You go [...]


  4. Falconry has always been a fuzzy business for me The I read about it, the I realized that falconers reside in an unusual life and journey I had heard of this book, H Is For Hawk , and finally succumbed Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be so drawn into the world of Hawks.Helen Macdonald begins her journey by describing the phone call she receives from her mother Her beloved father, a Fleet Street photojournalist, had died from a heart attack She and her father had a wonderful relati [...]


  5. Some people who have read this found it pretentious and self indulgent, but I have to disagree I m sure the author doesn t need me to justify her work, but I m going to explain why I think this is a brave book that requires the reader to be generous in order to get the most out of it.Firstly, it is worth mentioning that the book was originally written with no intention of publication instead I think it was to help the author to make sense of the trauma of losing her father In the light of this i [...]


  6. Thought I d reviewed this but apparently not I found it utterly compelling I usually read a book over a period of several weeks, but started this on a Friday evening and finished it on the Sunday morning After waiting 3 days, thought I d remind myself how it engages you from the word go, and just read chapter 1 again That was it, couldn t stop and before I knew it, I was two thirds of the way through it again I developed eye soreness and then pain my GP was worried about a detached retina didn t [...]
