A review by h_cornwell
The Birds by Daphne du Maurier
dark mysterious tense fast-paced
I read this for my adaptations module. Don't judge it by the Hitchcock film, it's only very loosely based on this short story which is much better.
Moderate: Child death, Death, and Violence
Wouldn't recommend if you have a fear of birds. Some scenes/descriptions might be a bit gory or potentially scarring especially for a younger reader.
