An Eagle in the Snow by Michael Morpurgo - Alejandra's Life

An Eagle in the Snow by Michael Morpurgo

November 22, 2015




The powerful new novel from the master storyteller – inspired by the true
story of one man who might have stopped World War II.

1940. The train is under attacks from German fighters. In the darkness, sheltering in a railway tunnel, the stranger in the carriage with Barney and his mother tells them a story to pass the time.
And what a story. The story of a young man, a young soldier in the trenches of World War I who, on the spur of the moment, had done what he thought was the right thing.
It turned out to have been the worst mistake he ever could have made – a mistake he must put right before it is too late…

Praise for An Eagle in the Snow
“Brilliant, fascinating and intriguing. Historical fiction at its most magnificent.” Jackie French Praise for Michael Morpurgo

“Michael Morpurgo writes brilliantly about war and animals, conveying the big emotions without preaching. The former children’s laureate has the happy knack of speaking to both child and adult readers” Guardian

“Morpurgo, as always, is subtle and skilful, and incorporates social and moral issues into his writing without being self-righteous or detracting from the quality of the narrative” Elizabeth Reilly, British Council



My Review:
If you shed a tear in the War Horse, expect nothing less in this book. Brilliantly written, Michael Morpurgo grabs your emotions and let you know that there are more emotions, beyond those and they need to be explored, because his description in narrative is absolutely amazing!
Definitely a must have and read book for any lover of Historic wars and animals.
