Helen Macdonald's bestselling H IS FOR HAWK established her as both an eloquent writer and an adept narrator. This natural history of falcons was written in 2006 and has been rereleased and recorded to capitalize on the success of her memoir. While FALCON has little of the warmth of that deeply personal tale, it is a passionate portrait of a fascinating and noble bird. Macdonald again demonstrates that she is a fine narrator. Her British accent sounds erudite without ever being cold. Her pacing is too swift, however; she races through passages that might otherwise have been savored by the listener--though this is perhaps fitting for the story of the fastest creature on our planet.
