Just fine. To pass some time.
I chose this audio, because having searched for well-reviewed Aussie novels, this one kept being recommended.
The narration was fine. A sweet voice, that was easy to listen to and reflected the traits of the lead characters.
The story itself? Fine. I mean, given the readership reviews, I expected something more heart-tugging, or perhaps with more profundity. But by this audio it feels too light and cliche to be of any real impact. A nice short-lived (you'll understand) slice of life from a historical community.
Maybe that's it? Given the opportunity of landscape and history and demographics, this cldve been a wonderful, weighty, piece of writing... but as the story comes to a close, I'm distracted by its brevity and consider if that's a ruse to have a second book...
Anyhoo. It's fine. Honestly. It's not going to change your life. Or even keep you company for a second once finished.... but it's a nice way to pass an afternoon or two.
