Books by Robert Swindells
One of many post-nuclear-holocaust books, this one written in 1984 details one boy's experiences following a nuclear strike on England.
Ultimately tragic and with no real surprises it is quite readable and not too harrowing.
Davy was always the submissive one in the gang, always happy to follow the more boisterous Chris and Paula, until the discovery of an old human skeleton in a chilling wood sparked off haunting and hallucinations for Davy.
Not too much character development and too abrupt an ending; Viking paganism and some ghostly and tragic events.
