really liked it
Read from April 12 to 13, 2011

Exactly what has Melina Marchetta’s books reduced me to endure? The greatest time suck otherwise known as philpost. Almost a month ago, some awesome people decided to put The Gorgon in the Gully on tour. Being the Melina Marchetta fan that I am, I did not hesitate to sign up: First up, Carmel Fauth sourcing it out (awesome lady…*woot*) Then Catie (another awesome lady for taking charge.) Then ME!!!! Yay! But one week, two weeks, three weeks later with the book nowhere in sight, I was starting to feel guilty for joining: I had unwittingly frustrated the hopes of fellow Marchetta fans by the hold up. What’s worse, I was getting impatient (understatement of the year!) Now, imagine my DELIGHT when this was delivered:

Photobucket (YAY!)

The Gorgon in the Gully was a sweet read. It felt good reading about Jonah again. And I suppose this sentiment has been said time and time again, but I must needs repeat it: Melina Marchetta can do no wrong! The story is simple. I couldn’t help but smile. So simple in fact that it can be described in just a couple of words: friends and growing up. And being afraid. Danny Griggs has tons of things he’s afraid of. What’s heartwarming about it is what he does they all do about those.
