4.0 out of 5 stars Gould's Book of Fish, 18 July 2003
This review is from: Gould's Book of Fish (Paperback)
An extrodinary read which has since revolutionised my outlook on life. Gould's Book of Fish is set in 19th centuary Australia, and I chanced on the book while waiting for a holiday flight to same country. Flanagan is a raconteur of rare originality and effortlessly takes the reader on journey to the depths of Sid Hammets (the books protagonist) soul, as he struggles with his hidden passion for fish. I was utterly convinced by the authors treatment of a delicate subject, which would be have been at the time the very hight of taboo. This was a perfect holiday read which accentuated the charm of a unique country, and i was recommend this book to anyone who appreciates fresh ideas and thought provoking prose.
