This book and the reading are literally brilliant. I still think about all the characters daily which is my criteria for a great book. The voices used for the different people were perfect. I admire the rawness, the total absence of self indulgence, the captivating and completely convincing detail of the memories. The structure of the time. It’s really really good. I want to see pictures of everyone! It’s also tragic of course. It’s got a really essentially Australian viewpoint too, direct, down to earth, no bullshit voice. Everyone should read it.
