Skellig by David Almond
I honestly believe this is the best book by far, I love Mina,she is so intelligent and Micheal is so caring and confident, I would reccomand this book to anyone who believes in, 'angels'.

Skelig is a very well written book, the characters and settings are described with fantastic detail.
The theme of the story is introduced gradually with several references to wings which are carefully written to make you think about wings and birds.
David Almond has created three very realistic teenage boys who talk and act as all teenagers do.
Mina is a very mysterious girl, but Michael seems to like her more then he lets out.
Michael shows anger towards Skelig but it is obvious that this is just frustration because he wants to save Skelig but Skelig just won't move.
This book is brilliant and I would recommend it to anyone.

I am in my forties and I was so moved by this book that I cried and that hasn't happened to me in quite a while! This book is for anyone, old or young, that has an open mind to the incomprehensible. The power of this novel is that it allows the reader to understand that an angelic being may not adhere to the traditional standards we have been brought up to believe.

I THINK THAT SKELLIG IS A GOOD BOOK BUT AT THE BEGINING THE BOOK WAS INTERESTING AND WAS NOT ALL THAT UNREALISTIC AND THEN CAME THE PART THAT THE MAN IN THE GARAGE OTHERWISE KNOWN AS SKELLIG HAS WINGS WITH FEATHERS AND HE BECAME ALL GOOD AND HEALTHY AGIAN. THE BOOK MAKES SENSE BUT HAS TO BE FOLLOWED CAREFULLY. THIS BOOK I WOULD RECOMMEND

This book is amazing. We are reading this book in school right now. Every chapter you just want to read more and more. I reccomend this book to anyone. It is really mysterious and you have to take in account what is happening every minute, or you won'tnderstand the story or the plot.
