The author has a writing style very similar to John Irving. So, if you like books along the lines of 'World according to Garp', 'Cider House Rules', and 'A Widow for one year' then this is the author you want to follow.
The writing is clean, clear and paints a mental image of the entire storyline throughout. The characterization is very well done and the book left me homesick for a place I had never been.
Put this book in your top 5 reading material. You will not be disappointed.
I also thoroughly enjoyed reading about life in the Australian outback thirty years ago. This included descriptions of the beauty of the land plus background conservation issues, problems with water and sanitation (the flushing toilet sub plot is surprisingly effective) and useful information about spiders and snakes. The snake avoidance tips could be very helpful. Although I hope I won't need them in London. As yet.
The author shows how the physical isolation of the characters intensifies their emotions. Thirty years ago there was no chance of escape via computers, world wide networking or texting. And everyone has to work together to keep the farm going and the animals and themselves fed. Love is felt more deeply, but so is estrangement and hatred.
At the end of the book I was left with a single question. What happened next??
