    Patrick White s style is a unique blend of roughness and literacy that can become quite absorbing, mesmerizing even, for its timelessness The minor details of ordinary lives fuse with poetic vision and transform the common experience of man into the absolute essence that holds the power to make tangible the sheer mystery of existence The desolation of the Australian bush, with all its mythology and folklore, acquires an abstract dimension seen through the eyes of the Parkers Stan and Amy Park Patrick White s style is a unique blend of roughness and literacy that can become quite absorbing, mesmerizing even, for its timelessness The minor details of ordinary lives fuse with poetic vision and transform the common experience of man into the absolute essence that holds the power to make tangible the sheer mystery of existence The desolation of the Australian bush, with all its mythology and folklore, acquires an abstract dimension seen through the eyes of the Parkers Stan and Amy Parker build a farm and a family, not sure of their motivations but with steady hand, as they wonder whether the growing familiarity of their routi...

    The best thing about this book is the amazing way the author can conjure up the feel of the Australian outback in words Not only that but he takes the reader back in time to when settlers were opening up new areas of the countryside and starting to develop the towns we know today I enjoyed the way the story progressed slowly and steadily with just the small excitements of a quite normal life Occasionally I found Amy a little annoying and I was irritated by the authors use of the man and th The best thing about this book is the amazing way the author can conjure up the feel of the Australian outback in words Not only that but he takes the reader back in time to when settlers were opening up new areas of the countryside and starting to develop the towns we know today I enjoyed the way the story progressed slowl...

    Contains truth, beauty and genius Off the charts great writing lifts unprepossessing subject matter into the realm of pure art Explores how each of us remains essentially alone, but indelibly connected Will invigorate the reader and inspire the writer.
