On one hand, the nature writing in this book is wonderful. The story is basically what happens in a town after a young girl goes missing. The young girl is not local, so the village has the misfortune of being both setting and possible culprit.
The problem for me, though, is that there is far, far, far, far too much telling. Even when you imagine Attenborough reading it too you, it is far too repetitive and you quite frankly don't care about anyone.
