Refresh and try again. I don’t feel badly about this book, I don’t think I’d be running to tell people to read it though. After I read it I couldn’t sleep, I thought I saw some foxes in my room I just reread this years later and I still love it. Feb 25, Rebecca Isles rated it did not like it.
Oct 03, Peter rated it it was amazing. TV and how TV was much better because you have expression and humanness.
I don’t get it – this book has received some really good reviews telling furboo life changing this read was. I’m still not really sure if I loved it or didn’t like it. William then has a crisis of faith William spends the rest of his life having faith in his experiences with Franky and is then devestated to find out that his wife and son never believed his stories.
Ascoyne rated it liked it Aug 30, It’s just the same like mine. It’s an unhappy thing to see. Houseboat on Seine, a memoir, was published inabout Wharton’s purchase and renovation of a houseboat.
Quotes from Franky Furbo. A story about a magical fox, or a man’s hallucinations about a magical fox–or is he real after all?
Kim Serene rated it liked it Mar 21, This was so intriguing and so bizarre. William believes with all his heart that Franky really exists and upon fin I’m not someone into war themes, especially reading them so the war frubo at the early part of the book was a bit hard for me to get through but before I knew it, I was so hooked into this book.
Birdy by William Wharton! The book centres around a wounded American soldier who was found wounded, along with a German counterpart, by a magical talking fox named Franky Furbo. I enjoyed the description the author uses, how he illustrates physical feelings blended with emotion, tastes and memories, the love he feels for his wif The imagination in this book is quite amazing. Mainly the story is about the man and his remembrances of the adventures he had with this fox during the war–about his needing to believe and the way it affected his life and family.
Franky finds children, by far, much more pleasant and intelligent than most adults, but they are easily ruined by their families, schools, and society. Umm one word ‘weird’!!! Wharton died on October 29, of an infection he contracted while being hospitalized for blood-pressure problems. I loved the ending and felt it was really well done.

David rated it really liked it May 27, It could be a masterpiece and you could love it if you consider the way the author managed to implement a story inside frznky story and make it all perfectly logical yet magical and unpredictable to the very end. Magda added it Apr 08, William Wharton is like no other. They should put this book in the school programs. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia’ – Patrick Gale show more.
