rich combination of love , power, morality, history. i especially loved the tension of the love story between the 2 men from opposite lives. It will stay with me for a long time, got under my skin.

loved the format of philosophising about human relationships through the telling of a love story. And so much of it mirrored my own experiences and I don't even have kids.

Wonderful northern characters

I loved the narrator, her lovely variety of voices, capturing characters well. Short chapters work well. Great sisterly bond and loyalty. I was sad when it ended

tedious male gaze at women's sexuality

tediously long, tedious male gaze at women's sexuality. I had to stop quarter way through. Even the woman's voice was not powerful. Very disappointing as I have loved his other novels

I am so shocked that I had no idea about Aboriginal farming or engineering. The deliberate retelling by white invaders has been so profoundly damaging to Aboriginal people and the land. I will be spreading the word.

she writes with passion and honesty about the brutality black people in America face throughout their lives. And about the love, hope and power of collective, grass roots organising and support for change. She is an amazing woman. Truly inspirational

so much heart
