What a weird little book is the one I have just read. Markus Sedgwick sure knows how to write books that make me think so much. You must have noticed all crows are black, aren't they?

What a weird little book is the one I have just read. You must have noticed all crows are black, aren't they? Now, imagine what would happen if one day you see not a black crow but a white crow.

White Crow is a tough book to like. As a huge fan of Marcus Sedgwick I couldn't help but feel disappointed in the narratives. It was a book that tried to be something it isn't, and that's a thriller. The three narratives that run alongside each other all differ in style.

Posted on November 2, 2010. Title: White crow Author: Marcus Sedgwick. And what made it a pretty good book were the themes that it explored and how they connected everything and everybody in the novel. The ideas of erosion, decay, corruption and destruction permeate the story in all of its levels: in the place where the story is set; in the strained relationship between Rebecca and her father and between Rebecca and her boyfriend ; in the relationship between Ferelith and Rebecca and how it kept moving around circles until it inevitably reached a point of no return; in.

Some secrets are better left buried; some secrets are so frightening they might make angels weep and the devil crow.

Thought provoking as well as intensely scary, White Crow unfolds in three voices. There's Rebecca, who has come to a small, seaside village to spend the summer, and there's Ferelith, who offers to show Rebecca the secrets of the town...but at a price. Finally, there's a priest whose descent into darkness illuminates the girls' frightening story. White Crow is as beautifully written as it is horrifically gripping.
