nonfiction/memoir of Yeoman Warder and Ravenmaster.
I was expecting more ravens; this had to do mostly with Skaife's life (including some war stories from his days spent as a soldier) and a few stories about the Tower of London (ghosts, birds, and follies).
I would have abandoned but it was a fairly short book so I just pushed through, but I can't say I'm much richer for it. ( )

Lighthearted, chatty, affable - Ravenmaster Skaife is just the chap you'd like to have a pint with. Or two. He has a very cool job, taking care of the ravens at the Tower of London, AND he gets to LIVE in the Tower grounds. You maybe learn more about Skaife than you do about the ravens in this little volume - but it's all enjoyable, fun, and a very pleasant read from an impressively self-taught military veteran, tour guide, historian, and caretaker for the smartest birds on earth.

I would note that the hardback copy I got from my library had a couple signatures transposed, so I had to do some hunting around to follow the pages in their intended order! ( )

One of the most surprising books I’ve read in a long time. Who thought that a book about an ex-infantry squadie who lives in an old castle looking after seven blackbirds could be so engrossing that I literally couldn’t put it down? This was an unplanned single sitting read. Skaife’s has a simple honest prose style (and I mean that as a compliment) that immediately engages and entertains. He comes across as a consummate story-teller and educator as well as a highly empathetic human. But the real stars are the Tower Ravens who emerge as distinct individuals with their own personalities and behavioral quirks. ( )

An enjoyable introduction to the ravens of the Tower of London. An overview of their history, care, and personalities. A nice light read. ( )

This was such a fun audiobook! I love hearing books as their authors intended for them to be read, and Skaife performs enthusiastically. He's a great storyteller.

This wasn't a topic I had ever given much thought, much less studied, but it's a fascinating subject that I'm happy to know more about. ( )
