Well, yeah. I loved the book. I guess it's been a long time coming, me reading it. The only Tim Winton I'd read previously was the kids' stuff years ago ;)

Anyway, I found Dirt Music to be a very beautifully written story and wow, did it ever put me in awe of the amazing Western Australian landscape. Sure, I hate summer and I would really be better off going south (colder weather) than north (disgustingly hot weather), but it did make me wistful at the thought of exploring some of the amazing places up there. If only for the photographic opportunity.

Plus, I love Luther Fox and Georgie Jutland - they seem like they're made for each other. I recall Georgie's thoughts about how most men are trying to keep things in order, "bring them to reign" and so on, and Luther Fox is trying to live that way but he's going against his nature.

Finally, damn I am so glad they found him in the end. I'm so glad the plane crashed!
