Was reccomended this book by my fellow truck driver who also does the Brissy to Darwin run weekly and I seriously couldn't stop listening. well done Jo, what a strong woman you are retelling this challenging story. Will be sure to reccomend. Cheers, Sarah.
I could NOT stop listening to this audiobook. I felt as though I was along for the adventure. Joanne Van Os is an incredible writer. I felt their highs and lows almost as intensely as they did. I LOVE Australia and have visited 3 times and greatly admire anyone that can endure the harshness of the Outback. WOW!!!!!
Is there anything you would change about this book?
I would have liked more focus on the outback itself, less on catching, herding and killing cows etc.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
I have to admit I just got bored with this book and didn't finish it.
What does Joanne Van Os bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I believe she read her own words, which is a good way to bring a book to life.
Was Outback Heart worth the listening time?
Not for me sorry, too many cows not enough about life in the outback ( without cows).
Any additional comments?
I was hopeing for a book about travelling in the outback, with descriptions of wildlife but got how to rope ,catch and kill cows over and over again, which wasn't really what I was expecting, although that may be the experience Ms Van Os had its not what I was expecting.
You need to hear this story. An unbelievable raw, heart wrenching, humerous, captivating and mind boggling life. I can not recommend this book highly enough and is an absolute must read for any Australian!
