Storyland by Catherine McKinnon is unlike any book I have read. It is like a snapshot of the history of Australia through the eyes of five characters positioned in time from 1796 to the future.
The transition from character to character is seamless and the writing is enthralling and believable. I have found other books which have a fictional take on Australian history to be a bit patronising and awkward. This book is well researched, believable and a must read.
