it was amazing

Very unique story with hidden meanings throughout

This was a very complex and intricately-written story. This story is told about a community of birds, though the meaning behind the story sounds as if it is actually more about human beings. The main male bird is torn between two female birds. He feels he has a responsibility toward the female bird Daisy, whom he is not attracted to nor does he want to be with and raise a family with. But, she bullies her way into his life and starts to manipulate the relationship.

The main male bird has different female bird that he believes is supposed to be his. She ends up choosing a different male bird as a mate who seems to be a prime choice, but turns out to be drunken and abusive. The actual Telemachus is believed to be a huge male bird that hunts and kills the birds who stray too far from the community. even after reading the book, I still felt that Telemachus represented more than just a huge bird with killer claws, though.

In order to completely grasp and appreciate a story like this one, you should have a pretty open mind and be somewhat of a deep thinker. All in all, though, it's a very good read.
