Book Review: Shadow by Michael Morpurgo - Reviewed by Romi Foster (24 Nov 2011)
Michael Morpurgo has written so, so many books, and almost all are fantastic; when Shadow came out a few years ago I was really eager to get my hands on a copy and when I did and began to read I found myself not falling in love with the story. It seemed to be lacking, and I ended up not finishing it, which is scandlous for me, being a huge Morpurgo fan. It sounds like another wonderful Morpurgo book, but I didn't like it myself, I felt like it wasn't up to standard almost, and didn't want to risk tarnishing my love for this authors books by reading it and not liking it for the whole time.
Lots of people do like it, I'm not sure why I didn't, but it was just a little different from all his other books, a little unbelieveable, unlike his others, and that didn't agree with me.
