I was surprised how much I liked this. I‘m new to adult graphic novels and tried this based on reviews. It was fantastic, really engaging. It had so much to say and such a unique way of saying it. I‘ll definitely be checking out the adult graphic novels section of the library more frequently.

I think this would be a great book club book, there is soo much to talk about. Set in the mid 1980‘s from varying perspectives. I really enjoyed this book.

CarolynM I liked her last one, The Memory Trap, a lot. I have a copy of this one but I haven't got around to it yet. 2mo
TheRegular_coffeeandbooks @CarolynM1 it‘s the first book of hers I have read but based on this I will definitely seek out her other books. 2mo

Smashed this one out in 2 sittings. It‘s sharp and snappy. I loved it. Definitely recommend.

RestlessFickleBookHoarder I loved this book! I wasn't going to read it, but one of my favorite podcasts (Black Chick Lit) was doing an episode on it so I decided to read it. 2mo

By Nightfall: A Novel | Michael Cunningham

Loved it. I can‘t fault Cunningham he is one of my absolute favourite writers. I think what struck a cord with this particular novel is the everyday honesty and the distance between what we think and what we say. This is popping up a bit in my book choices of late. Writers who write honestly about the beauty of everyday people. The way beauty and art is articulated in this novel is particularly special. I really enjoyed it.

For the life of me I have no idea why it took me so long to get around to reading this book.

Loved it. I really enjoy the way Sally Rooney writes. I appreciated how she articulated the space between the main characters thoughts and what she actually shares with her “friends”. I think I may have enjoyed it even more than Normal people.

I am sceptically aware of my own bias here because I love Nick Cave, but the more I think about it the more intelligent I realise the writing is. I loved it! Listening to the audiobook is definitely the way to go. It was like listening to a performance with the musical arrangements and sound effects. If your a Nick Cave fan and even if your not (and are not adverse to reading darker subject matter) I recommend listening to this book.

I read this in a few short sittings. It had the same evocative writing as Wimerra but I enjoyed this story much more. #ozfiction #therip #markbrandi

CarolynM I was in two minds about Wimmera. I found it really frustrating, but I think it was because the outcome of the story was so much what was likely to have happened in reality. I wanted better justice! I've got a copy of this one, but I'm putting it off😬 (edited) 3mo
TheRegular_coffeeandbooks I felt the same with Wimmera @CarolynM I enjoyed the writing but it felt too far away from fiction. I read it on the back of too many heavy books with children in horrible circumstances so I may have been a bit biased. I definitely enjoyed The Rip more there was still a sinister undercurrent but I didn‘t feel frustrated at the end. (edited) 3mo
