    eBook chorvatsko.pro ☆ The Peregrine PDF/EPUB ë peregrine free, york kindle, review download, books ebok, classics free, The Peregrine EpubI bought this on the recommendation of Werner Herzog who claimed that it was the most influential book he had ever read and in fact underscored his particular filmic eye This seemed rather a large claim and of course it piued my curiosity so I bought it I have to say it is a fantastic strange melancholic and yet also joyful read so well observed so well written My only 'surprise' was that given Baker's obsession with the peregrine I found it particularly odd that he dedicated the work 'to my wife' considering he was hardly at home and she was not with him on his solitude excursions this was almost amusing Still it's in keeping with the whole strange JA Baker Peregrine world Loved the book

    eBook chorvatsko.pro ☆ The Peregrine PDF/EPUB ë peregrine free, york kindle, review download, books ebok, classics free, The Peregrine EpubRecently I have read birdlife described by birders a stand up comedian and a prize winning journo The beauty of this writing surpasses them as the Golden Jubilee Diamond does cubic zirconiaIt relates the author's obsessive stalking of a peregrine falcon and its mate across the East Anglian countryside He transforms the insouciant weather landscape and falcon into interlocking metaphors of each otherThe falcons soar and stoop over their territory their progress tracked by the clouds of birds that burst up as they pass Sometimes foolhardy crows jays and blackbirds pursue them but they are dropped by the disdainful wing flicks of this the world's fastest creatureAt times the descriptions of savagery are simultaneously beautiful and breathtakingly visceral Almost every paragraph contains a gem in a carefully crafted settingThe kingfisher shone in mud at the river's edge like a brilliant eye He was tattered with blood stained wit

    eBook chorvatsko.pro ☆ The Peregrine PDF/EPUB ë peregrine free, york kindle, review download, books ebok, classics free, The Peregrine EpubI live in Essex and when I am out in the wild the descriptions from the book of my local landscape live on in my imagination I find myself looking at the landscape and creatures in it with echoes from the passages in the book The language used by the writer is fresh and original but also startlingly accurate The first few pages with the scientific details about peregrines is a little dry but once the accounts of sightings and observations build up I found it beautiful and compelling to read

    eBook chorvatsko.pro ☆ The Peregrine PDF/EPUB ë peregrine free, york kindle, review download, books ebok, classics free, The Peregrine EpubThis unusual book trails one man's obsession with peregrine falcons Beautifully written it is only possible to read a small portion at a time because of the 'sameness' of the tale but it sends me to sleep dreaming of wild places and lovely countryside
