Loved this book but I often found my mind wandered off thinking about a theme raised in the story. I was forever rewinding to re trace my place in the story. All in all though it is a very though provoking book about why we do what we do. Challenging, enjoyable and novel self help book.

Good Yarn

I loved this book because after doing a road trip in Australia past the Salt lakes I felt I could visualise the books setting and characters well. Quite a believable story with a nice touch of humour. Enough suspence, surprise, adventure to keep you engaged in the story throughout.

This was an enjoyable listen. Not riveting but a good solid interesting story of Sandra's complex life and struggles and the psychological impact these had on her relationships and behaviours.

I loved this moving story. Being a nature lover and finding it therapeutic to sit and breathe in "nature" by riverbanks and estuaries this book transported you to the marshlands, sitting and observing the insects, birds and animals through all the well written intricate descriptive details of the author. The writng made you feel like you were sitting alongside the main character. The book touched my soul, even though it was wrapped around a sad story line with themes of family violence, abandonment, loneliness, human cruelty, love and survival. Overall this was a slow and steady pleasurable listen during my daily commute.

Absolutely loved the book. Laughed at so many of the similes. Such good verbal descriptions of Eli’s life dramas and his perception of events and feelings. I was transported there with him.
