Favorite book of the year so far. The author creates visceral feelings of awkwardness loneliness and redemption.

In a fantastical world of Dragons and magic this story spends much of its time washing dishes and tending onions and making clothes. Which is not what I expected. Yet the themes it deals with are nuanced and raw. I appreciate the underdog story.

the narrator ruined the mood

It was a quick listen. Not a bad story idea. Couldnt quite get passed the dumb LA surfer dude accent on the narrator though. It wasnt very tension building or intimidating.

its a page turner

I don't normally like Chronicle style books but for this one I'll make an exception it's very exciting

If you read only one book in your life, read this one. So relatable. So poetic. So affirming. Tears still in my eyes.

Intense use of metaphor

The writer creates and imersive story. He encapsulates the feeling of creepy dread. I thought the concepts were fascinating.
However this is a slow paced book and the narrator had a very droaning voice so you will either love it and be transported right into the world or (as I did at times) be transported to sleep.

well argued

This was a good quick easy read. i think the author puts forward a well thought out argument about the value in truthfulness.
i would recommend it to anyone.

it was such a compelling story. I love hearing good fiction come out of Australian artists.
