  • Not what I expected. Fabulous read!

    Once in a while you come across a book that is genuinely brilliant! I certainly wouldn't have read it had I known the plot, but I'm loved it. Even better than 'The Slap' !!!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Awesome and moving

    I felt the pain Dan feels of being different, of being on the outside looking in. This a truly beautiful story of culture, being true to yourself and being strong enough to survive when you feel that you don't matter to anyone or yourself.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Harsh and real, but too long.

    This novel started with such force - lyrical and real and emotionally explorative - but dragged for far too long. I felt like it could have finished halfway through and been brilliant - instead, it was repetitive and at times self-indulgent. Worth dipping into but I wasn’t glad I stuck it out to the end. That said, it’s an amazing example of social commentary on life in Australia.

    Thanks for your feedback!
