In Episode 44, Col and I look at ‘ABO’ by Walter De La Mare.
Walter De la Mare is renowned as a poet and author of works aimed at children. Consequently I was exited to come across this title because I was familiar with the author’s name, just not familiar with his work.
Maddeningly, the story was something of a damp squib. There is potential for a lot of unnerving content but a lot of this is lost with unnecessary characters and heavy-handed over-writing.
