Book Description

1 July 2013

Moving, shocking and wonderful in equal measures, Into That Forest is a must-read for anyone who loved The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas or Life of Pi.

We were lost, and the only thing that could help us were the tigers. The more I looked at its black eyes, the more I seen kindness, and I knew it were saying to us, Come, I’ll take you home.

This is the story of two girls lost in the Tasmanian bush, saved and raised by two Tasmanian tigers.

Unforgettable, original and vivid in its composition, Louis Nowra is one of Australia’s foremost literary talents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Into That Forest 6 Jan 2013
'Into That Forest' was a wonderful book, unlike anything else I've ever read before. The story takes the reader on an incredible journey through the Tasmanian outback with friends Hannah and Becky. Thoughts of this book lingered with me long after turning the final page and I'm looking forward to passing it onto others who haven't yet discovered such an amazing title.

The story is narrated by seventy-six year old Hannah, who is looking back on her early life. Nothing could prepare me for the tale she would have to tell of surviving in the wilderness with her friend Becky and two Tasmanian tigers, who she names Dave and Corinna. Not only do the girls survive but in their own way they adapt and flourish in their new environment. They become like tigers themselves, moving on all fours and shedding their human clothes, as well as taking part in the hunt for fresh meat. Isolated from contact with any other human being, they begin to forget their previous existence and become happy with their new lives.

Everything changes however when they realise that the hunters have now become the hunted. Two men are seemingly intent on capturing them and rescuing them from the tigers, but the girls do not want to return to civilisation and a new struggle ensues.

Louis Nowra depicts both the horror and the beauty of life in the outback. I enjoyed seeing how the girls adapted to life with the tigers and even began to see them as their new mother and father. The tigers in return adopt them as their own, surrogate daughters instead of the cubs which they are brutally robbed of. There's a sense of freedom throughout the first half of the book as the girls run wild, their senses sharpening as they become accustomed to the sights, sounds and smells around them.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow 15 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I read ths short, captivating and poignant novel with absolute absorption. Very impressed; the narrator's voice was utterly believable. Am now inspired to read more about Tasmanian Tigers as well as 19th colonial life in Tassie.

I enjoyed the story immensely it had all the elements of a factual account but was a novel it I'd amazing how many species have been wiped from this planet through our ignorance however looked on the Internet at some footage from Tasmania from 2012 of what can only be a tasmanian tiger walking slowly up a hillside maybe just maybe they are not all dead yet.

This book was such an amazing read. The story was told in such a way that i felt i was a part of the story, a ghost watching over the two little girls as they learned how to survive. I would recommend this to anybody who loves books that are heart warming to there core.

I would like to have had more information about the extinct Tasmanian Tiger, but it did not spoil the entertainment of the book.

I found this novel intriguing, an unusual tale that held my interest throughout. The story flows well and although initially the dialogue seems strange, after a few pages it seems natural. Recommended.
