A Wonderfully Evocative Tale,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Picnic At Hanging Rock (Paperback)
"An elegantly written novel that deserves the status of a classic...the film is lyrical and beautiful, but don't think that simply because you've seen the film you will be wasting your time reading the book. The book is rich in detail and provides greater depth to the story. The producers of the film were blessed with such wonderful source material - and it's obvious they took considerable advantage of this. Joan Lindsay's writing is as beautiful and enigmatic as her heroine Miranda. A truly sublime reading experience. Rarely have a book and film complimented each other so well."
