really liked it

I was born and raised in Queensland so this novel has some depth of meaning for me, in fact has been highly impactful, even shocking.
The brutality is what comes home to me. Not just the brutality between white settlers and indigenous peoples, but the physical and psychological violence of their lives that was an accepted 'normality'.
This is an important novel, more of a documentary, as it spells out a history that many people of anglo-european origin would prefer not to acknowledge.
