    Boy Snow Bird Summary Ä PDF DOC TXT or eBook Boy Snow BirdAn almost perfect 5 star book ruined by a non ending I'm furious I want to strangle the authorOk for a slightly coherent rantPart 1 BoyThe story has connotations of Snow White and Cinderella while being skilfully placed in the 1950s a nice touch by the author It is steeped in magical realism The tone is fearful dark and muted It is hard to get a grasp on Boy and although you feel sympathetic towards her the language is distancing Although it is told in close personal point of view it doesn't feel like you intimately understand The myster
