Raw Blue is one of those books with a very apt title. It indeed is a raw book. It's a book about finding yourself, dealing with or avoiding the past (whichever way you see it) and coming to terms with family differences. There're a lot of reasons for Carly to be down but she has one escape: surfing....
3.5 - 4 StarsI really enjoyed Raw Blue. I think it depicts Carly's struggles to find herself and to find the strength to continue on with life really well. My only problem is I feel I didn't get to know the characters well enough.
4.5I have never felt so alone for some one in my life. Carly, I just want to hug you! Would have been a 5 but just a little too much surf speak for my liking. Review to come.
Flamin' Nora, mate - what a read! I have never met an Australian book I didn't end up loving (let's just forget I ever owned The Slap) but this is definitely one of the best. Raw, funny and I'm now talking in an Aussie accent. Great stuff.
I'd like to give this a higher rating but I cannot. It probably does deserve a higher rating but I never felt the spark, I couldn't connect. There was no revelation or something. I guess we know what this book was about but really... I don't know.Is it about what happened to her?Is it about her situ...
