loved it. the story as kind of sad, but it was an amazing book to read
... but a great listen, too.
Morpurgo has in Shadow, of course, beautifully captured the ugly truth through the relationships he spins, between grandfather and grandson, mother and son, boy and dog. His storytelling is simple, accessible, moving, spellbinding. These are all things we've come to expect from the great man, and are the reasons why I wanted to download this book in the first place.
What I didn't expect was for the book to be so well... dramatised. I thought the actor's delivery was perfect, especially Afzal's in the role of Aman. His voice was full of the character, without being melodramatic.
What I mean to say is that the actors did more than just transcribe the story from text to audio, they truly added to Morpurgo's work, and made it even better. I truly recommend this to anyone, not just children. This is a work we can all learn from.

Brilliantly moving. Very enjoyable for me as an adult reader. Wonderfully written with great sensitivity to difficult subjects. Very insightful.
