characters The Iron Bird 100 ¿ Forget pigs and carthorses and bring on the Big Beasts because Animal Farm has been reimagined This time it’s the creatures in the zoo that have decided to take back control And instead of a parable about the evils of communism the fable is the life of Margaret ThatcherIt’s 2010 and Baroness Thatcher a lappet faced vulture is lAppet faced vulture is losing it And so she’s an unreliable narrator grand uncompromising deluded But before she drops off her perch it’s time to set the record straight What turned a grocer’s daughter from Grantham into the most powerful woman in the world What put all that infamous iron into her soul. I did not expect to enjoy reading let alone laugh at a book about Margaret Thatcher especially in today’s political madness The clever way Woodshaw interweaves the young Thatcher portrayed as a lappet faced vulture eager to breakaway from her life in the family business onto greater things and the ageing Thatcher who believes she is being invited back into politics to “ clear up the mess the Order of Herbivores left behind” is ingeniousThe reader has the pleasure of trying to identify the cross party politicians My favourite was the “nonsense sprouting dishevelled looking polar bear that has aspirations to perform a ridiculous stunt on a zip wire”I read this on an ebook which gave me extra insights and opportunities to view footage and news articles an original and creative touch that added another dimension to this great bookA good read which I thoroughly recommend It will make you think wince gasp and laugh out loud often in the same paragraph

The Iron Bird is written uniuely Robert Woodshaw has a command of English language that has produced graphically descriptive text throughoutHis novel is a puzzle to piece together Linking the zoological animals to their political counterparts is aided by some knowledge of the Thatcher years Even so I still found myself researching alongside reading It would be really interesting to hear Robert talk about his choice of character correlations in detailThere is some stomach churning reading which to be fair does link to the ravenous nature and behaviour of a vulture I have a feeling that was the author's intention The variety of animals and their character links are wide Referencing their scientific Latin names allowed Italian phrases to slip neatly into the story from time to time Flipping between time zones from Bel imperia Pinch's early years as a juvenile bird to the aged fallen hero Bel imperia Pinch Ex Commander in Chief of the Order of Carnivores Ex Prize Exhibit Ex Imperatrix cleverly predicts future events and reflects on past actions I can imagine this novel really coming to life as an animated film
