4.0 out of 5 stars interesting, 7 July 2002
This review is from: Mutant Message down under (Paperback)
theres actually alot of contraversy about the origin of the information in this book and whether its fiction or fact.its a simple but fascinating account of one westernised womans journey into the outback of austrailia,whwere she is a guest of the Real People from them she learns a totally different way of life and meaning of life itself.I found it really interesting to have my mind challenged by the way they lived (and still continue to?). Its certainly a refreshing and insightful alternative to our materialstic ,dualistic and goal obssessed culture..i really enjoyed the sequel too.

The contraversy is not whether it's fiction or not (it's complete fiction, it's sold under fiction) but rather surrounds her untruthful claims that it was true. The Aboriginies were so furious with this book that they received a government grant to go to the US to openly challenge her claims made in her book. The result was that she said opps! Sorry! I made it all up.
