The story of a relationship and marriage breakup from all sides. Insightful and amusing Re all the inter relationships and yet doesn’t make any judgements. The online dating scene for Toby is very amusing. The performances are very good.

One of the best books I have read this year. The details Sandras life and work, or we see the trauma of Sandra’s life through each Cleaning job. I found parts heart wrenching and yet uplifting as well. The detail of how Sandra helps people in need, she quietly gets on with it is inspirational.
Great audio and great book that makes you think.

A great read A Story of the South.

A great read ‘a southern story’. The novel is about an unsolved murder of small child Robin. The story details the effects on the extended family of Robins murder, and in particular his sister Harriet. The author give us insight into the plight of the poor though the eyes of Harriet. The author uses the humour of situations Harriet gets into to tell parts of the story.
If you like The Secret History and the Goldfinch you will enjoy this book. The detail of life in Mississippi is not to be missed.

Very entertaining read

I remember the Bogle-Chandler case it was very intriguing at the time. Louis Nowra’s take on the story is very interesting given the era. I think most people would find the story interesting. The performances are excellent. The story is very Australian.

Started by Re reading The Handmaid’s Tail, which I enjoyed the second time around. The Testaments is very good, the performances are wonderful particularly Ann Dowd. The story towards the end gets a bit predictable, overall I enjoyed the filling in of some background and the future. The story is so relevant to the world view of the political situation in most countries.

I reread in anticipation of The Testaments, and it was just as good the second time around. The performances are the very best.
The book stays with you long after you have finished.

Very enjoyable book from the beginning to the end. It’s thoughtful, enjoyable, laugh out loud funny and yet by the end you become self reflective. Masterfully written full of lyrical prose, can be read on a number of levels.
This is well worth the time.

An intriguing story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Very good characterization you really get real insight into each character.
The performance is good, however very English.
As the first book in the series I will continue reading.

I started this book and could not put it down. The story is great in particular the cultural references of 80s Australia, and if you love the Parramatta Eels you will love this book.

The narration is very good, great Australian ascents.

I would recommend this book as a great Australian read about time and place.
