  • Meh

    This book is boring the pants off me. Try as I might I can't even begin to feign interest in the things that trout eat. And those things are so overbearingly present in each and every moment of this book that I find my mind wandering constantly on to less putrid topics. The result being that I have to reread the last half dozen pages all over again. It's a hard slog, this read, I'm not convinced it's worth the effort. But I have learnt a thing or two about fly fishing. Every singly character in this book is peculiar. Not exactly likeable but definitely intriguing. It's stated that both main characters have severely autistic siblings and implied that they are on the spectrum themselves... As are most of their friends. As a result there is a lot of discussion amongst the characters about art, literature, music, mathematics, language and they have a lot to say about the minutiae of these topics. I'm undecided if this is a pro or a con, at the very least it diverted the focus off trout food for a moment. This book feels like it's moving along in a highly unstructured and unfocused way, aimlessly navigating through endless stories that don't go anywhere and have no point, which has me questioning why am I even reading it? Because It's set in Tasmania and has an appealing title. Serves me right for choosing a book on such superficial grounds.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Philosophy and fish

    A very clever and unique work of literature. As a Tasmanian I related strongly to the location and as a human being I related to the philosophy and the politics. Good question: how do those who live in our wonderful natural environment keep voting for the short sighted and destructive politicians that they do?

    Thanks for your feedback!
