A gruesome story, recommended by the Incomparable podcast on a recent episode about Roald Dahl. Near a small English village two young proto-psychopaths kill birds and torment an torture a nerdy classmate. Dark and violent as is much of Dahl's work, rather dated in its language but still affecting, however the ending is something of an anticlimax. The fantastical turn could have easily been used to far better effect. ( )
