Here at Casa Feathers n Beak, reading is a flock-wide tradition.
While some of us like to focus on the words on the page, while others of us prefer to focus on the crispiness of those pages, it is safe to say no book entering this household lacks for attention.
So Pearl thought it would be a great idea to combine his literary knowledge with his mommy’s typing skills to offer a “book o’ the week” review – just in time for your weekend reading list!
This week, the book is “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed.
Pearl’s review: For a book called “Wild,” there weren’t nearly enough feathered beings in it. Or waffles. Or millet, for that matter. In fact, most of the stuff the heroine ate while she was out in the wild didn’t sound very delicious at all. For a book much richer (literally) in delicacies, check out this book instead!*
His mommy’s review: I watched the movie version of “Wild” (starring Reese Witherspoon as Cheryl) first (we actually watched it while we were visiting West Texas to hike) and then I read the book later when I got back home. What a delight – the film and the book are a nearly perfect match! The filmmakers held to Cheryl’s story as told in her words – a rare gift indeed. Her story also inspired me to want to hike more in the future (and also, ideally, to get in shape before attempting to scale a very tall mountain the next time I do it).
With love (& feathers),
Shannon & Pearl
