Well written, but overall disappointing. SPOLER: As near as I can figure it out, an evil company is buying up waste from around the world and polluting the English countryside. Its retribution is becoming the only company in the world where these pollutants produce environmentally safe fuel. ( )

Somehow you wouldn't expect a work by Ted Hughes to begin with the words `School was over and the Easter holidays had begun'.
