I guess if you like thrillers as a genre then this is clever enough and twisted enough to be of interest. I just don't like wrapping myself in the sort of twisted negativity that seems to be obligatory in order to hear out the author's claim on our r ...more

Nine Days by Toni Jordan

This spare collection of moments in the ordinary lives of a Melbourne family is spread across decades and generations. The brilliance of the writing is in the economy of the passages that seem at first to bear no relationship to each other, but which ...more

This is a well paced story powered by a pleasantly predictable structure that allows two separate narratives to converge in a very satisfying way. Quinn has some fun with parallels- of character, and of experience, and although it is largely fictiona ...more

I first read this book about ten years ago when it was published, and I carried warm feelings about it in my mind until this year when we went and watched the film. The film was a triumph which prompted me to read the book again, and with the three e ...more

A delectable read for those interested in conceptual and performance art, or perhaps in the possibility of art being transformative on a personal as well as a public scale. The writing is lovely, quotable in parts and provocative in others. Character ...more

I probably didn't do justice to this book, reading it in one long gobble over twenty four hours, but the book is forceful and it didn't invite small dips and probes.

The story is a crashing together of different sorts of violence and different kinds o

Interesting Edwardian period crime fiction, centred around the railway machines and systems that transformed village society, industry and even recreation. Although in many ways this is ' light reading' it is sociologically powerful and historically ...more

Sebastian Barry
“And all those boys of Europe born in those times, and thereabouts those times, Russian, French, Belgian, Serbian, Irish, English, Scottish, Welsh, Italian, Prussian, German, Austrian, Turkish – and Canadian, Australian, American, Zulu, Gurkha, Cossack, and all the rest – their fate was written in a ferocious chapter in the book of life, certainly. Those millions of mothers and their million gallons of mother’s milk, millions of instances of small talk and baby talk, beatings and kisses, ganseys and shoes, piled up in history in great ruined heaps, with a loud and broken music, human stories told for nothing, for ashes, for death’s amusement, flung on the mighty scrapheap of souls, all those million boys in all their humours to be milled by the millstones of a coming war.”
Sebastian Barry, A Long Long Way
