“Immortal Bird” by Doron Weber

Immortal Bird by Doron Weber

This was simply an amazing book. I have no quotes from it. But on the back of the book there is a recommendation from Dava Sobel, author of Longitude. This person writes: I found it almost impossible to read this book, or even to see the pages, at times, through my tears. It was equally impossible to stop reading it—to turn away from its red-haired teen hero or the voice of his adoring father. The boy Damon, whose life is delimited by his damaged heart, emerges here as the grandest spirit in a small body since Antoine de Saint-Exupery imagined The Little Prince.”

I too fell in love with this boy, with his father, with in fact the entire family. I loved the magic of Damon’s acting experiences and how good he was. I admired the father’s constant search for medical help for his son and his willingness to become so knowledgeable himself, that he could question the medical people authentically. And then I too became exasperated and frustrated by those same medical people.

I was amazed at the connection between father and son and if you read this book, you will know the scene that shouts that connection. It says something powerful about the individual’s will to live just to avoid breaking that tie.

I finished the book on a Tuesday and by Thursday it was still with me, complete with the tears. When I turned the last page, I found the small black and white picture of Damon and he looked exactly as I knew he would. I don’t often read books twice but for this book I would make an exception. I don’t often buy a book that I have already read but I will, so that I have my own copy of Immortal Bird by Doron Weber.
