i hate women. let me correct that: i hate stupid women. and i also don't enjoy books about how incredibly stupid women can actually be. this book should've apparently been centered around a slap that Harry gave to Hugo, a kid, after he was bad with other kids. supposedly, that slap somehow reverbera...
An engrossing, uncomfortable book in which none of the vividly portrayed characters comes out smelling of roses.
Pretty memorable.. not bad
Hated this book and all of its characters. Tsiolkas is a very talented writer, the novel raises many interesting questions, but I found his characters so totally unsympathetic that it was a chore to make it to the end of the book.
