Format: Paperback
Enjoyable,immensely readable, highly entertaining look at Australia, its people and their lifestyle.
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.

I have trouble grasping the fact that Niall Griffiths is a published author, I guess he would have chosen hangman if he wasn't so opposed to the death penalty so he had to stump for his second choice - writing.

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.

Rubbish book.

As someone who loves Australia, I was looking forwards to reading this but found it disappointing with a very superficial and one sided view of this country. Sadly it is more ammunition for those Australians who see Brits as "whining Poms". Don't read it if you love Australia as my husband and I do after 5 visits and a total of a year spent visiting remoter parts of a great country and friendly people.

Having also lived on Australia and moved back to due family reasons I understand the good and bad of the country. I think this focuses on the bad. Australia of the 1970s is a different world from today. Yes. Aussie s think they have the best country in the world. They have pride in it. Is that so wrong? That's the total opposite to the UK. I'm not saying don't read this. It's a decent enough read. I just found it overly cynical and blinkered.

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.

Niall nails it
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
