Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Amazing Tim Winton! I never wanted this book to end. I want to know more about the people in this book, about what’s in their hearts and heads. Tim Winton is the ultimate story-teller…both in novel and short story format. He’s able to say so much with so few words. He can build atmosphere with just a few sentences. There are times when I’m left completely speechless and I need to take a step back to absorb what I’ve just read. The stories in this book are about heartbreak, about growing up, about being grown up, about love, and honour, and shame, and doing what we have to do. I will never get enough of this author.
