  • A great book, let down by a too long ending.

    I think this book probably deserves 5 stars. It contains harrowing parts and heart rending parts and the atmosphere it creates about migrants coming to post-war Australia and trying to settle in is very well depicted. It was the ending which brought the book down. It was simply too long, as if the author, whose other works I have read and enjoyed, had several potential ways of closing the story and couldn't choose which way so he wrote it several times. In the process, he detracted from the most gut-wrenching part of the story.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • An emotional read

    The sound of one hand clapping is one of the most emotionally draining books I have read. Sometimes I would have to put it down after reading only a couple of chapters. But rewarding and thought provoking it certainly is!

  • Mesmerising

    A wonderfully evocative book. Flanagan tells a story with many layers and communicates the beauty and wild nature of Tasmania.
