"The narrative is part Peter Carey, part Gothic novel, with plenty of drunkeness, torture,villainy and cannibalism to be aghast at. A fine travel book too" (Evening Standard)
"A fabulous read" (Vogue)
"An excellent portrait of aunique island" (Sunday Telegraph)
"Shakespeare excels at providing psychological insights. An intimate and revealing work only a truly gifted writer could have produced" (Independent)

The paperback version is ill-served by the reproduction of the illustrations and the publishers should be ashamed to issue such poor examples. If those in the hard cover version are equally as bad I think N. Shakespeare should sue.
Nevertheless I recommend this book as a thoroughly good and very informative read.
The print is way too small and the illustrations are poor - some so dark that you can barely make out what is being represented in them! This is a shame as they do not do justice to the text, which is beautifully written, thoughtful, and reflective.
It's not something you'd pick up to read for fun, I think you need to be interested in Tasmania and it's history.
