The Baby Boomer generation (known as 68ers in Europe) pulled out all stops when it came to rebelling against their elders, but were treated with kid gloves by the 'pig system' they affected to overthrow. What would happen, though, if a new generation decided to rebel against "them?" That's exactly what occurs when a group of young Tasmanians embark on an extended campaign ...more

The setting: Tasmania, previously known as Van Diemen’s Land. The Hungry Wolves are predominantly 5 young people who belong to a generation beyond the ‘Baby Boomers’. It is some of these older people they seek to ‘challenge’, to coin the ultimate euphemism. This older ruling elite parrot, pedal and promote supposedly liberal values, internationalist and global, at the expense of local values and cultures. They will be exposed as hypocrites and false prophets financed by global capitalism.

There is nothing I have read that so perfectly captures the spirit of these times as this book. While the mainstream establishment still promotes the hackneyed ideals of 1968 as revolutionary, as if any remnants of the traditions they hate still need to be changed by what can only be described as failure and destruction, younger generations are beginning to wake up, and they are not happy.

This book puts all of that rubbish in its place in a very readable and entertaining manner. From its many st

When I first read the synopsis I was unbelievably excited.

Rebelling against the baby boomer gen? Fvck yeah!! I'm on board for that! I wish I could kick my whole generation on board for that! And to some extent The Hungry Wolves of Van Diemen's land does pose valid criticism to our watered-down world culture, consumerism, and the boring death trap that is post-modernism.

But on every other level this book is a HUGE PIECE OF YOUNG WHITE MALE ANGER BULLSHIT. Let's start with:

“Nature, the universe, hungers for us to give it meaning. But our capacity to do so has become clouded, and that is why a great awakening is required.”
A gentle quote loaded with relevance for revolutionaries the world over.

With the Alt-right making mainstream media headlines everyday, it's important that people understand what's driving the movement. Is it White Supremacy? Sexism? Homophobia? For some yes, but not for the main protagonists in The Hungry Wolves of Van Diemen's Land. Sean, Maddy,

This strikingly unique satire addresses a veritable plethora of topics that leaves the reader with a massive table of ‘food for thought.’ Unashamedly blunt, this short book critiques the hypocritical ideology of the baby boomer era, taking on controversial issues such as minority groups, media ethics, questionable modern art, open borders and racism. When two young Tasmanians begin to rebel against the establishment, they find themselves discovering the importance of their ancestry and take the ...more

I started off a little ambivalent about it, but thought I wouldn't give up on it, it's not a long book and I used to be acquainted with the author. But by the time I was half way through I was enjoying it, and by the time I had finished it would easily number in the list of best books I have read this year. Great book Paul. ...more

Juleigh Howard-Hobson:

What’s more, as new as it is, this book is the first book I would lend to someone who wanted to understand the New Right. And the Alternative Right. And the European Right-wing parties. And Traditionalism, Odinists, anti-capitalists, anti-antifas, nationalists of any stripe, culturalists, anti-feminists, anti-PCers, those fed up with the system, those who eschew the hypocritical Zeitgeist of the baby boom generation (also known as ’68ers). Those who want the end of unlimite

The blurb grabbed my attention and so I gave it a shot. If you like incoherent writing and ideologies in service of an "alt-right" (or really, just lazy fash) plot line, then go for it. ...more

It's amazing to read a book which gives voice to those who have had their voices silenced by a corrupt and evil media.
What is even more amazing is that it was written by an Australian.
I have to go now so I can purchase his other books.

“The night I killed Packo I had a terrible dream. A hideous female corpse was floating towards me through a closed window. Calling itself ‘Bonna’, the corpse kept insisting that it was the real rebel, the real iconoclast. Its face had the same grim, sickly look I had observed on USA establishment figures, and I believe that it was the baby boomer generation incarnate…utterly enslaved to globalism, yet still desperately wanting to be seen as ‘edgy’ and ‘rebellious’.” 1 likes
