Bill Meeks The trials of King Sparrow reads like a fairytale I really loved reading this novella There is at least one gruesome scene in this story, but it wouldn t be a Bill Meeks story without it If you want to relive your Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Andersen days I would recommend you to read this one. This was a little bit different for me.but it was a good interesting story. Take equal parts Watership Down and traditional fairy tales, and add a strong dash of Ovid, and what you get is pretty close to Bill Meeks The Trials of King Sparrow Another way to describe the story or the first half, at any rate is to imagine a BBC nature documentary, but told from the first person perspective of the animals themselves The story begins with King Sparrow, the monarch of a small flock of birds flying south for the winter, is the victim of betrayal, almost losing his life Take equal parts Watership Down and traditional fairy tales, and add a strong dash of Ovid, and what you get is pretty close to Bill Meeks The Trials of King Sparrow Another way to describe the story or the first half, at any rate is to imagine a BBC nature documentary, but told from the first person perspective of the animals themselves The story begins with King Sparrow, the monarch of a small flock of birds flying south for the winter, is the victim of betrayal, almost losing his life to a conspiracy of wolves and one of his own people Injured and almost certain to die, he begins a long journey toward vengeance, helped or hindered by other animals along the way This first segment, to me, has a lot in common with Richard Adams epic of rabbits plagued by a continuous series of dangers both without and within their own kind Like Adams, Meeks gives his animal characters a definite ans pleasurable sense of their own animality Though they have reason and speech, they re not merely human characters in animal clothing This, to me, is the best part of the story.About two thirds into the book, the story takes an unexpected turn, as mysterious forces begin to intervene in King Sparrow s quest, and he is forced to turn aside, for a while, from the road to vengeance This section is surprising and dreamlike, and for a while I felt unsure whether enjoyment or unease was the better response In a way this is appropriate, as this is often the feeling one gets when reading certain old myths, especially the kind one finds in The Metamorphoses What issurprising is that, as firmly rooted as the story begins in animality and a naturalist in thecommon sense of the word aesthetic, it ends in sheer supernaturalism also in the common sense Again, this is approapriate to the fairy tail tradition, which in some ways King Sparrow falls firmly into The difference is that these characters, being written so well and so strongly as animals, do not belong as squarely as fairy tale characters do in that setting of enchantment and happy endings There is a brutality in King Sparrow that is both very appropriate given its setting in the animal world, and also very disturbing given the human territory the story wanders into later on And that dissonance contributes very much to the overall sense of awe, mystery, and inscrutability the reader is left with at the end of the book I was contacted to download and review this book based on the fact apparently that I had read, liked and reviewed Watership Down, and therefore, based on that fact alone, I was looking forward to this short book I do not wish to be mean or to be rude, but I have given it one star and that is too much The very fact that others have all rated this as 5 stars makes me believe that they must all know the author or are helping boost him or this book.This is without a doubt the worst, most poorly w I was contacted to download and review this book based on the fact apparently that I had read, liked and reviewed Watership Down, and therefore, based on that fact alone, I was looking forward to this short book I do not wish to be mean or to be rude, but I have given it one star and that is too much The very fact that others have all rated this as 5 stars makes me believe that they must all know the author or are helping boost him or this book.This is without a doubt the worst, most poorly written, badly laid out and deeply flawed book I can actually remember reading Ever There is no character development, the book starts and ends almost assuming you are on board with what is going on, I was expecting something and got nothing and was badly written with glaring continuity cock ups.If I thought that the sparrow standing up to a cat or fighting an eagle was bad enough, well then as for the sudden change from sparrow to human WTF Oh my god this is pure drivel I haven t put a spoiler alert here because there is absolutely no plot to spoil, the story goes from bad to making no sense at all.What was the author on when writing this I can only assume it was something strong that lasted for the few hours needed to write down this thing The only good thing about this book and the reason I gave it 1 star was that it was short, very short and therefore I have only wasted a few hours of my life reading it.I so much wanted to like this but I didn t at any point at all I was determined to finish this and give it an honest review, because offering this to me to read based on me liking the classic Watership Down by Richard Adams is as far removed as offering me a rusty pedal bike when I have expressed interest in a shiny new Mercedes car in other words they are worlds apart My only worry and parting comment to this travesty disguised as a book is that manypeople will read this just to see how bad it is following this honest but critical review So I guess this is a form of negative advertising Don t do it people Don t do it A bird s ligeI found this writing to be a fun read The Author has a wonderful imagination which is displayed in this story I thought the punishment was harsh but deserved &FREE PDF ↜ The Trials of King Sparrow ☔ The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez Netflix Official Site The Trials of Gabriel FernandezTV MASeason TV Shows A boy s
