    As usual Peter Carey peoples the pages of his offbeat prose with all sorts of oddball personalities This was Titch s only fault, the belief he could have anything he wished This is how birds fly into window glass, how women fall pregnant.In style and playfulness A Long Way from Home somewhat resembles his early novel Illywhacker. On the side of plot the novel is about the national car race around the continent This is the atmosphere of the races Dwa...

    I really struggled to read this book Every once in a while there was some tidbit that piqued my interest and kept me from giving up on it, but I wasn t crazy about the writing style, pace or tone of the book I was also sometimes flummoxed by Australian expressions I d round 2.5 rating stars up to 3 I think the author had good intentions but perhaps he is not the right person to tackle the history of the cruel and racist treatment of the Aborigines in Australia By combining that history with I really struggled to read this book Every once in a while there was some tidbit that piqued my interest and kept me from giving up on it, but I wasn t crazy about the writing style, pace or tone of the book I was also sometimes flummoxed by Australian expressions I d round 2.5 rating stars up to 3 I think the author had good intentions but perhaps he is not the right person to tackle the history of the cruel and racist treatment of the Aborigines in Australia By combining ...

    It is perhaps to the detriment of this book that I read it on my journey to and from the announcement of the shortlist for The Republic of Consciousness Prize for UK and Irish small presses Any book by a long established, double Booker prize winning, elderly white male was likely to lack freshness and vibrancy when compared to the hardcore literary fiction and gorgeous prose on the long and shortlist for that prize and the great authors and wonderful small presses I had the privilege to meet a It is perhaps to the detriment of this book that I read it on my journey to and from the announcement of the shortlist for The Republic of Consciousness Prize for UK and Irish small presses Any book by a long established, double Booker prize winning, elderly white male was likely to lack freshness and vibrancy when compared to the hardcore literary fiction and gorgeous prose on the long and shortlist for that prize and the great authors and wonderful small presses I had the privilege to meet at that event.This is a book of three distinct sections, which at times can feel like three different books, albeit with a reasonably clear sense of where the author ...
