Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Listen up surfers! If you're not too busy hitting the waves then take some time out to read this wonderful tale of a boy's journey through adolesence. But what about us non-surfers? Still worth reading! The author Tim Winton has brought us a truely delightful read, telling us the tale of Pikelet, a young lost boy coming of age. The character development is superb all around and the consequences of such damage they inflict over the course of this tale really leave you feeling numb, perhaps hitting close to home for some readers. Reading Breath will engross you in the world of Pikelet and his friend Loonie and all their water riding antics. It's a ride you will enjoy, if not briefly. After all this book is only around 250 pages so it's over quickly, but nevertheless well worth it!
