    Simply a great story

    I'm not the strongest of readers and struggled a bit at first so just before the half way mark I took a break and read a fluffy book. Then I came back and wow, it was like a different book, so much was happening and I was glued to the story. Loved the second half and what's more, made ,e appreciate the first half. It's a great story.

    Boy Swallows Universe is extraordinary.

    A new Australian classic. It reminds me of Tim Winton 's Cloudstreet. The fact that it's based on true events in 80s Brisbane makes it all the more enjoyable and relatable.

    A bit bizarre but you can't put it down

    You will either love or hate it. I loved it. The story was part funny, part horrifying, deep, and at times bizarre!

    Best read for ages!

    I read a lot of books and this is only one of two awesome reads for me this year. It's honesty and depth is so moving. Every scene and innuendo reveals something new throughout the story. Just sooo good.
