For years Jaxie Clackton has dreaded going home. His beloved mum is dead, and he wishes his dad was too, until one terrible moment leaves his life stripped to nothing. No one ever told Jaxie Clackton to be careful what he wishes for. And so Jaxie runs. There's just one person in the world who understands him, but to reach her he'll have to cross the vast saltlands of Western Australia. It is a place that harbours criminals and threatens to kill those who haven't reckoned with its hot, waterless vastness. This is a journey only a dreamer - or a fugitive - would attempt.… (mais)

Very well written from the perspective of an uneducated 15 year old. When I first read this it was of-putting but on second reading it reflected the character very accurately and I became accustomed to it. The language is consistent all the way. The story is touching, delving into issues of domestic violence, child neglect, paedophilia in the Church and human relations in general. ( )

Slow burn and came together in the end. The more I think about it the more I enjoyed it. A bit Japser Jonesish. I've recommended to Sarah. ( )

I am going to digress a bit on this one as I just read that it is being criticised for the main characters being only male and the ngative way the few women characters are portrayed. I am aware of the Me Too movement but I am stunned when I read someone telling an author either how they should have written their or how their book fails because it doesn’t contain certain items from an agenda. I have also read how white people cannot write authentically about black people, men about women and so on.

Jesus Christ! it is fiction for fuck sake. It is not real! It requires an imagination not a fucking checklist of permissible characters. Grow up and write your own book to show all us dumb fucks how it should be done. I dare you!

Now to this very fine book.

One of the things I love about Tim Winton’s writing is how he brings the country and its people alive. I am in Oz right now as I write this and unless you have been here it is very hard to describe the immenseness, dryness and specificness of this country. There is no shortage of bad people here and a lot of space to bury bodies. His combination of bad people and huge dry open spaces is put together so skilfully I am looking out for these people as I drive along. Any ute with a good covering a red dust surely is driven by a psychopath who has just buried a few in the outback.

This is a fraught narrative, more a stream of semi-consciousness than a well told tale. A meeting of opposites in a place that just wants people to die.

Last time I was here the police were digging up an area where a man had buried a dozen or more hitchhikers before he died and then his nephew took over the “family business” and buried eight or nine more. Meanwhile just down the road the police were trying to catch a father and son who had been on the run for around three and a half years obviously getting aided by people as they are chased across the state. It’s that kind of country and it takes a massive talent to get even close to capturing the essence of this place. Thank you Mr Winton

The story is told by Jaxie, young teenager. It's mostly his recounting what is in his head and his thoughts about the his past, his mother, his stepfather, his cousin Lee, and Fintan McGillas, the guy at the shepherd's hut. His resilience and response to the landscape are notable. It feels like not a lot happens, but it's not slow moving. Jaxie's voice is well captured, as is Fintan's. ( )
