Books by Robert Swindells

Brother in the Land

Style: Good

Attitude: Positive

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.

SciFi, Thought-provoking

Voyage to Valhalla

Style: Average

Attitude: Unobjectionable

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.

Magic, Spooky
