Grief Is the Thing with FeathersGrief Is the Thing with Feathers by Max Porter

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Two young boys and their father cope with the sudden unexpected loss of the mother/wife. They are visited by a crow who assists them in coping with their grief. This brief novel reads fast and the chapters do have almost a poetic quality, but I found little resonance with the characters or their grief. The whole novel feels more conceptual than real, some beautiful writing rather than a story.
