30 years ago, Niall Griffiths' parents took up the offer of a ten pound ticket to migrate to Australia but they only stayed 3 years.Griffiths compares his recollections of that time with the place he discovers today. Sometimes funny, sometimes moving - it made me realise that Oz may be quite a different place to the one seen on the TV/cinema screen.
This book is so depressing it should come with a free pack of Prozac (other anti depressants are available). I couldn't download a different book so I had to finish it and by the end (and if I was an Ozzie) I would hope that Australia's door didn't smack him on the @are on the way out.
Australia is a magical place. I do agree with your comments on Perth. I dislike I it as mining has been a blessing and a curse.
Great description of the wildlife and this includes the boorish arrogant Australians
Clear to see why people go to Australia as migrants ,slowly their eyes open to the undercurrent of violence racism and total boredom till finally sense prevails and they return to civilisation
Like me taken to Australia as a kid he sees Australia through a child's eyes and contrasts it with the view from his adult self
Anyone thinking about emigrating to Australia this is a must read to stop you making a massive mistake which will thunder through your family for generations

On average a miserable read. Although intentionally laborious in large chunks, it was interspersed with needless foul language to make some occasionally petty views.Published on 30 Jan. 2013 by Chris Woodall

By the end of this book (yes I did finish it) I loathed Mr Griffiths. His attempt at stream of consciousness writing nicely framed his lack of imagination and talent.. Read morePublished on 2 Jan. 2013 by s monard
