I loved the way this book built up, giving different events affecting various people and adding to the mystery. The atmosphere was terrific, and the characters drew me into the plot, too - each was interesting in different ways, and one of them I was truly sorry to see go! The suspense was nicely judged: the only reason I've given it a 4 instead of a 5 was that I was left wanting more! ( )

Not sure whether this should be called a series of interconnected short stories or a novella, but in any case, Bird uses it to promote an environmental message. Actually, I found the story, concerning the mysterious disappearance on the Scottish coast of dogs, children, and adults to be more compelling than the ultimate message. Bird has a knack for creating out-of-kilter characters who are fun to watch, and the Scottish setting is very well done--at least it adds an element of exotica for this American reader! There is a nice bit of John Wyndham type science fiction here as well. ( )
