The Meifod Claw, a Review

Bowe remains at his best, throughout the work

Rare are the writers that grip you with such sparkling metaphor, and vivacious use of language, twice within its opening page:
‘He waited for the morning to find pathways through his body.’
‘..he had found himself within a snow dome that waited for life to be shaken upon it.’
Bowe remains at his best, throughout the work, in describing the beauty of such everyday feeling, of setting a scene, of putting pen to a landscape. A love of language pervades all.
He trust his characters to be liked on their own merits, without the need for lengthy explanations of self. A faith which is justified as you turn page after page eagerly awaiting the next exploit.
The book centres on sci-fi but operates an open door policy where all are welcome, regardless of their beliefs and interests.
Billed as a comedy, it is undoubtedly replete with its funny moments. A lover of an inventive and amusing turn of phrase can gorge themselves here.
