did not like it
bookshelves: first-reads
Read from December 23, 2011 to January 25, 2012

I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

Immortal Bird is the story of how NOT to get help from others.

I did not find the father endearing. I felt sympathy for his son but found the father off-putting and narcissistic. Perhaps the doctors and medical providers were wrong, but the way the father went about "getting help" did not make me feel sympathy for him. I didn't particularly care for the writing or the name-dropping towards the end. I didn't enjoy this book or the feeling it evoked.

Sara Solomon YES! I did too.

Tr Totally agree with this review.

Kathy Agree completely! There are ways NOT to do it...

Sarah Wilson I completely disagree with you. The story showed a father searching for any and every opportunity to save his son. It was a poignant story about never giving up, no matter how grave a situation may be. I admire Doron's strength and determination.
