liked it
Read in March, 2012

Loved the concept and the characters – a great snapshot of the diversity of people on any one day around Sydney harbour - but was disappointed with how quickly and with the way the book finished – it felt abrupt and incomplete. I would have liked the book to be longer as I felt I was just getting to know the characters and wanted to get to know more of the “now” of their lives and have that developed.
Overall though I really enjoyed her writing style and will be actively searching out more of her books

Lizzy Chandler I read Dreams of Speaking and really enjoyed that. Glad to see that Five Bells has been longlisted for the Miles Franklin.
