The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas
The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas
I can see why many Australians felt offended by this book. It highlights misogyny, racism and 'machoism' among almost all characters. There is not denying that this is a reality which exists.
But what I liked about the book is that, although the men in this novel share most of this faults, I am still able to sympathize with most of them, including Harry.

BreadMaker AFK Germany 800 WATTS *2 kneading hooks&hellip
4.0 out of 5 stars brilliant!, 2 Dec 2008
This breadmaker is fantastic, and the sellers are very reliable.
I've only used it to make bread, and the results have been fantastic, since day one! I make sour dough bread, brown bread, seeded loafs ect,all very tasty.
The machine is easy to use, has a horizontal tray (it makes the loaf look nicer and you can put sesame/pumpkin seeds on the top!)and a timer... it's nice to wake up to freshly baked bread!
I'm very happy with this machine! I haven't bought a single loaf since I make my own!
