An important character in the novel Skellig by David Almond is Michael. The story starts when he moves to the Falconer road. He changes a lot during the novel and he is a lonely miserable person with his little sister illness at the beginning.

He is really interested because first he is a lonely person and one day he find the man with the wound on his shoulder, he get aspirin and 27 and 53 to cure his wound. Then he found Mina and makes friends each other and moves the man to the Crow road and fined that his name is Skellig and he has wings.

He changes a lot from a brave person who is helping a man with a wound with the helping of Mina to a miserable person again because of his sister is in the hospital with illness. The doctor says that she might die but the operation is success and Michael's mother get a dream with a man having black suit with the wings taking care of the baby, so the family put the baby’s name as Joy and they are happy and Skellig goes away to behind the three feathers.

I think Michael change his mind from the lonely miserable person to brave man who is helping a man with the wound and again to miserable person because of his sister illness and at lost he will be happy person with the successful operation of his sister.

Skellig, written by David Almond (1998) is an interesting book about a boy called Michael, who moves houses. Only, to his suprise, he came across a bizarre creature who was living in his garage. As if this wasn't enough, the health of his baby sister was also an issue.

At first, I wasn't really into the story, but the suspense kept growing and growing. Eventually, so did my fascination for the book. So, overallI would give this book a 4/5

I think the book was awesome the first sentence really gets you when micheal finds this man in his garage his whole world changes the name of the man is skellig and he turns out to be part human, part ange, and part owl you will have to read the rest of the story to find out what happens.Like skellig starts talking about William Blake which is a person who wrights books about life this man was also a poet ,he is important in the book .
