Home David Almond The Fire-Eaters. Been dreaming that I touch the fire, that I feel nothing, that I'm him. He tilted his head and breathed powerfully out, as if there was a fire roaring from his throat. The fire eaters, . 0. The Fire-Eaters, . I want to learn it from him, he said. To hell with being a builder! He laughed. I want to be a fire-eater! We hauled our discoveries back to the shoreline and heaped them up and flung them high. We worked and sweated and cursed and laughed and I tried to think of nothing but being with Joseph Connor as I'd been with him so many times since I'd been born.

The Fire-Eaters book.

David Almond's books often deal with themes of faith and redemption. THE FIRE-EATERS contains both of these elements, along with a reverence for even the most damaged lives. The night when nuclear war is averted, Bobby, his family, McNulty and the neighbors gather on the beach, eating, drinking and trying to spend time together with the people and places they love before the world ends, or changes forever. THE FIRE-EATERS contains a powerful message of hope. The fear of nuclear war, which was at its height during the Cuban Missile Crisis, was for its generation what the fear of terrorism.

The Fire-Eaters by David Almond 224pp, Hodder, £1. 9. On the Northumberland coast, north of Newcastle, in houses so close to the shore that they are almost one with the dunes, live the Burns, Gower and Spinks families. Robert Burns, the book's now-adult narrator, looks back at the events of one autumn when external forces threaten the end of childhood.

She took me around to the back of the house. There was a wooden shed there. It is a miracle, she said. She carefully inched open the door. She made soothing noises with her breath. Hello, she whispered. At first I saw nothing, then there it was, curled up on a little bed of straw. It was a fawn, no bigger than a baby. Its eyes glowed, reflecting the daylight that fell through the dusty window above it. There was a bowl of milk beside its head. It was dead, she whispered
