They are going to dance for you," he said to Laurie, and seven pigeonsstepped into the centre of the room. They began with a faint flutter oftheir wings, turning their heads from side to side, gradually growingswifter in their motion, until their brilliant colors blended andintermingled in a beautiful prismatic effect.

Talk about The Pigeon


Brialelis
I hardly read and most of the stuff I read i never finish anyway, but The Pigeon was a mystery i just couldn't put down. Its about a boy named Brian and his friend Donna asked if they could meet up to talk to each other. Brian agrees then he is on his from New Jersey To New York. He goes to Donna's Apartment and he discovers his best friend Donna is dead. He didn't know it at the time but he was being set up for muder. He pick up a phone that was ringing in the apartment and on the other side of the line was a warning for him to run because the cops were coming. He smelled his jackett and it smelled like whiskey, and he looked down in his hand because of a throbing pain and he saw a knife with blood on it. Is there anyway he could prove his innocence. I found The Pigeon to by a top noch thriller! it was a great story and i think anyone he likes mysterys will love this story.

i read this book in 9th grade while perusing the school library shelves for something to read that wouldn't take up a lot of my time, nor expand my mind -- as I was in no particular mood to learn anything. Little did I know about the book when I picked it up -- that i WOuLD make me think -- and that it would eat up a lot of my time that next week. The book is about a highschool senior who's framed for the murder of his girlfriend -- and the reason for the murder is more complex than I'd ever guessed.
In reviewing this book I will only comment on one particular character, for brevity's skae, and that is Jo-Jo, the Gypsy who figures as a prominent player in all of this. He is an extremely fascinating character, the kind that live on the edge -- the kind you'd love to meet, just as long as it wasn't in a darkened alley somewhere. And yet he shows an unusual compassion for Brian, the hero, one not rarely seen in (what we first perceive as) a standard villain. The fact that he is not the villain is even more shocking, due to how Jay Bennett (the author) describes his character -- with words like iron, steel, and darkness that don't make us think exactly of heroes, knights in shining armor. And yet he is not the typical antihero, like R.P. McMurphy or Cool Hand Luke. He is more along the lines of Capote's Perry Smith, one of those "native Iagos" that modern literature shuns so much to portray. He is not the villain, but the fact that he could be and is made a good guy in a way that is unimaginable to us upon a surface reading is reason enough to read the book.

Jay Bennett's novel is what I think should get 5 stars. It is a great novel. It is about a teenager who has been set up for a murder. He goes through a lot of trouble but finds a way out of it.
