The reader, though no doubt with best intentions, overacted so much that it sounds like a children's book. The voices are painfully exaggerated, caricatures - females sound like either babies or elderly and nothing in between, males sound like 50 year pack-a-day smokers without exception.
The story was wonderful.
loved it great read and well read. highly recommended to all. will read again and again
I wanted to know a little of the history of Sydney in the early days, and this book focuses on a family living in a surrey hills slum: the drunkeness, limited opportunities, despair, dirt and laziness of various members of a family. It also portrays the innocence and hope that can exist amidst this seeming quagmire of hopelessness. The narrator is very professional and differentiates well between the characters. It is the 2nd in the series that I have read, and whilst gently entertaining, I don't think I would read another of this particular trilogy.
