Too straight forward in the explanations, would have liked more diversity and acknowledgment of variety

Please do not read if vulnerable to suicide themes

Why on earth was the trigger warning at the end instead of the beginning? Many people are especially at this time much more vulnerable. Mental illness is highest in elderly people and this book does nothing but endorse it. I found it appalling and distressing.

Bad writing

I didn't like the ending, and was left feeling unfulfilled and hollow. I was expecting something more creative. I didn't enjoy the bulk of the story, something about it feeling mundane.

This is a story every Australian needs to read, whether or not you've experienced circumstances relayed in the novel, it gives you a deeper understanding of Australia's cultural history and existing trauma.

The way the author and narrator seem to sing in harmony just leaves me in awe. The flow of the narrative is really something, as is the setting and atmosphere created. It is quite unbelievable just how incredible the story is.
