How is it possible to read a book, know you really enjoyed it, have it stick with you years down the track, but really not remember what it is about? Such is "Freud and the Nazis Go Surfing", a little Aussie gem.

This book definitely hooked me in - I chose to read it for the title - but there is a bullying type theme running through it which disturbed me. There is cruelty and an odd blend of characters with their own issues which at times is a bit distracting. I didn't love it - but I think this will stay with me for awhile. It is a book which makes you think about it long after you have finished it.
