‘Boy And His Unicorn’
In contrast to that last book I read, I really did get into this book. I found it quite engaging, even though I wouldn’t have expected the subject to interest me.
It’s not giving anything away to tell you it was written in the early 80s, and is set in an almost post-apocalyptic US where technology no longer works but some magic does. And it’s about a boy and a unicorn. (This is all part of the set-up in chapter 1 so there are no spoilers here. This tells you much less than the blurb on the back of the book.)
The tale is told simply, and it does suffer from the occasional ‘Why don’t they just…’ but even so it was fun to read and I did keep turning the pages.
After a couple of decades of saying there’d be no sequel, the author has apparently relented and written one. I’ll let you know how I get on with it too.
