    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 Occasionall...

    So Here s the thing how do you review the book that you consider may be the book You know, the one that encapsulates your whole philosophical, spiritual, intellectual outlook on life Whatever you end up saying about it will ruin the experience for anyone else If you build high expectations then, of course, other people won t share those with you, or you will be overplaying it, or they will have a different outlook on life and all things spiritual and therefore hate everything about it So Here s the thing how do you review the book that you consider may be the book You know, the one that encapsulates your whole philosophical, spiritual, intellectual outlook on life Whatever you end up saying about it will ruin the...
