LoveReading Expert Review of The Secret River

One of Anne Berry's favourite books.

 

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2006.

An epic novel of the early settlers in Australia, of the plight of the Aborigines and the crushing of ambition by the pure hardship of developing the land.  We know the history but interestingly this leaves the reader to decide on the rights and wrongs as the facts are portrayed.  It’s a very grand, rich, multifaceted work indeed.

 

Comparison: Indra Sinha, Khaled Husseini, Barbara Kingsolver.
