Thoraiya and 5 other people liked David Brown's review of A Bigger Picture:
A Bigger Picture by Malcolm Turnbull
"When Turnbull is describing events or other character this book is excellent but when he gets to his favourite subject, himself, it bogs down and becomes very self serving. There is a good reason to buy political books written by journalists. They ar" Read more of this review »

I finished Turnbull's autobiography. It is approximately 5x more self-congratulatory and name-droppy than Gillard's, the only other ex-PM's autobiography that I have read. Also he has some huge blind spots of obliviousness in his life experience. Rea ...more

“Rising up into the air, they took to the sky and flew. From west and beyond west, into the wind and through it, they came past countless moons and suns. One laughed and briefly wore a scarf of raindrops in her hair, and then with wicked feet she kicked a cloud and caused rain to swamp a boat.”
Pat O'Shea, The Hounds of the Mórrígan

“I like the truth, even when it does trouble me.”
Juliet Marillier, Wildwood Dancing

“He gripped it and the sky began to spin; and Pidge knew that if he didn't put it right, the country would somehow obey the signpost and twist around and that, even though he was directly headed for Shancreg and home, he would end up in Kyledove.”

“One day I would have all the books in the world, shelves and shelves of them. I would live my life in a tower of books. I would read all day long and eat peaches. And if any young knights in armor dared to come calling on their white chargers and plead with me to let down my hair, I would pelt them with peach pits until they went home.”
Jacqueline Kelly, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate
