The Ravenmaster

24 Jan

Those of you on Facebook and Twitter who follow Christopher Skaife aka the Ravenmaster, know just what a highly intelligent and quirky individual he is.

“The Ravenmaster: Life with the Ravens at the Tower of London” showcases both attributes, along with his obvious love for the ravens he is now priviledged to look after.

What comes across is just how strong the personalities are of the various ravens. The famous Merlina being the most obvious.

Chris writes with wit and warmth which makes for a charming combination. He is also capable of much pathos, as I sat trying to read about Thor’s death through the tears in my eyes.

Highly recommended. Especially if you love a good memoir or a good natural history book. This combines both for a truly delightful reading experience.
