Before One for Sorrow, Two for Joy could even land on bookshelves, it was optioned by the Walt Disney Co. for a major motion picture. A sweeping epic of good versus evil, this rousing fable has been compared to Watership Down and The Lord of the Rings.

In the land of Birddom, a terrible danger is spreading. Magpies and crows, led by the vicious Slyekin and his assassin Traska, have taken control by hunting down and exterminating one gentle species after another. But in the face of slaughter, a brave robin named Kirrick leads the charge against Slyekin. Flying to every corner of Birddom, Kirrick rallies eagles, owls, and an assortment of other creatures to resist the menace.

Full of glorious escapades and thrilling from first word to last, One for Sorrow, Two for Joy is an immediate fantasy classic.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 2/19/2014

    " I thought that this was a very good book. It was a lot like Watership Down and Tailchaser's Song. I liked the way the small birds interacted with the larger birds like the owls, seabirds, falcons, and eagles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 2/6/2014

    " This is a great book. The main theme seemed to be based off of the ideas of Hitler and the Nazi's. I thought it was very interesting how Woodall used birds to reenact the genocide of the Nazi's. Good fictional book. "

    " One of the few books that I have started but been unable to finish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hanna Forrester | 1/17/2014

    " I have not read this book for a while and it was actually my first audio book but I will never forget how completly captured I was in this book from the first word. I never though a book about birds could be so interesting! I loved the flow of the words and the hardship our hero had to face. "

    " Loved this book, one of my all time favs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annie76 | 12/16/2013

    " It was marked as "Watership Down but with birds" but it doesnt have quite the same depth. And its languages swings between repetative and some times a little dense. Plus it has a rape scene in it, I wasn't expecting that! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kay | 12/7/2013

    " love the book though its not for children to read since I'm not a child the story itself was many very interesting comparison for me put it in a different perspective about the world and the environment. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Athena | 11/22/2013

    " Let me get strait to the point: I didn't like this book. There we go. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 7/15/2013

    " It is one of the BEST books I have read. It is filled with suspense and surprises around every corner of the story I recommend it to anyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kandas Myer | 7/13/2013

    " Enjoyable animal(bird) characters in an adult story line "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kaye | 6/9/2013

    " I guess I liked this book, but I wasn't loving it. The audio was fine, but not compelling, the story interesting but not riveting...maybe some day I'll come back to it, but now is not the time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judi | 5/7/2013

    " So glad this is now in kindle version.......waited a whole year ;-)Can't put it down. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Wan Kimm | 8/27/2012

    " The concept was very promising, but the execution failed to deliver. The writing was flat and rather mechanical. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaunesay Eslanai | 5/22/2012

    " I listened to this one, very good narrator. A very good, but quite violent story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kate | 12/3/2011

    " This would have been a great story... if it was written by a fifteen year old. The writing is really souless and plodding. I couldn't even make it past twenty pages. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 RoseMerrie | 12/1/2011

    " A horrible book-- the weak storyline couldn't ever justify the amount of gore and violence. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Benjamin | 9/25/2010

    " While this is an interesting concept, and probably could have been a pretty good book, the author has no sense of pacing. Conflicts were resolved too quickly and easily, for instance. "
