I absolutely loved this book. This is a very unusual novel. I found it hard to get into but by the end of the first chapter I was hooked. The two main characters- brothers Eli and August – are unforgettable.
The story is complicated, fantastic and satisfying- few books make me laugh out loud or cry and this book achieved both. The writing is amazing.
I will not attempt to give a synopsis of the story, just make sure you get a copy! Trent Dalton is my new favourite Australian author.
