The Birds: (Fremdsprachentexte)

The Birds: (Fremdsprachentexte) - Daphne DuMaurier I fail to be creeped out, or even impressed. The lack of explanation got me and didn't let me suspend disbelief right where it was needed. Rationally, however, I can see there are some clever parallels (bombings etc.) and suggestions of hidden menace; the main character is well drawn; all in all, I'm sure many people would enjoy it.
