Publisher's Summary

Meet the Law family - eccentric, endearing and hard to resist. Your guide: Benjamin, the third of five children and a born humorist. Join him as he tries to answer some puzzling questions: Why won't his Chinese dad wear made-in-China underpants? Why was most of his extended family deported in the 1980s? Will his childhood dreams of Home and Away stardom come to nothing? What are his chances of finding love? Hilarious and moving, The Family Law is a linked series of tales from a wonderful Australian talent.

Some interesting insights

On listening to the first chapter of the book I was wondering what possessed me to buy this one, but once I'd got used to Ben's style I settled down to really enjoy the stories and quirks of this Australian Chinese family, and felt rather sorry to be leaving them as the final chapter came to a close.
In many ways the book is just a series of snapshots of any family growing up, but the peculiarities of Ben's parents, the family's sometimes strange ways and Ben's way of looking at events give the stories just enough differences to make me want to keep on, to find out what happened next, and how things were resolved.
Definitely worth a listen.

Didn't grip me

I really tried to get into this book, I just didn't manage it. There is nothing I can pinpoint wrong with it, it just didn't grab me enough to bother to continue listening. I didn't finish it.
