Having lived for three years (in the 1980s) in Hobart, Tasmania I was particularly taken with Flanagan's ability to portray that incredible place.

His command and use of the language is fascinating and so very enviable as well as being mesmerising and irresistible by being truly original and unique.

Be warned - if you begin any of his books, particularly The Sound of One Hand Clapping, prepare to be hooked, sleepless and exhausted with eyes needing comforting and relief.

I can't recommend anything Flanagan writes highly enough. He is truly remarkable.
The second book of Flanagan's that I have read. This one so sad - but it's reality keeps it from becoming maudlin, depressing. He has the ability, not done well too often, of being able to have all the characters speak their stories. Each one is important, each has a voice, unique and theirs. Flanagan is an incredible writer. A book of loss, abandonment, pain, sorrow, memories and finding your way out to a place you can feel your self.
I was intrigued to read this book because of its setting (Tasmania) and its price. Indeed, you can profit from both, learning about the landscape and some of the history as well as the conditions people lived under during the building up of a land, using immigrant labor from war-torn European nations - for a modest price.

I suspect the author intended this work to be a sort of National Epic in a tragic vein (perhaps along the lines of Pasternak?) and if I cared enough about the work I might be able to enlarge on that thought via some of the repeated themes. But I can't say it succeeded in this objective (if that was the objective).

Mind you, I'm no writer or literary critic, but this novel, in my view might have benefitted from a better editor. Internal monologues were unnecessarily repetitious. Characters made sudden, uncharacteristic or inexplicable, abrupt changes, notably near the end, when the long, bleak story veered toward a cheery ending (right after a dreadful revelation to explain its beginning scene).

For whatever reason, I have compassion for the writer - someone who seems to have bitten off more than he could chew - residing on an island off of Australia, which seems to want a literary scene of its own but lacks the requisite assistance to live up to that aspiration.

For a small price, you might read the book to see if this review or the book has any merit!
This was a difficult book to get into, but Wow! I started this book some time ago and gave up very quickly. Came back determined to get through it. I noticed that of the one star reviews none of the readers finished the book. Some only got a few pages in. In reality, this is a beautiful book, part history, part father-daughter coping with life and family tragedy, part environment of Tasmania. It helped to have visited Tasmania several years ago so the rain, the dammed rivers, the forests, the evidence of fires-both recent and ancient, and the incredible amount of dead animals on the road all made sense. This book is worth the effort. It didn't click for me until I was 20 percent in, then I couldn't put it down.
This is not an easy book to read but Richard Flanagan's elegant prose cushions the tragedy of the human capacity to hurt: To hurt one another and most of all to hurt one's self. Set in Tasmania from 1954 through 1990, the plot centers around foreign laborers who came to Australia chasing the dream of a better life after surviving WWII. The main characters are a Slovenian father, who suffered at the hands of the Nazi occupation of his country, and the young daughter he raises in Tasmania when her mother deserts the family. A book you cannot put down and yet must from time to time because to continue reading for long periods will break your heart.
A very worthwhile story but marred by literary mannerisms. The chronologic shuffle of the story fragments seems mannered and unnecessary. Besides, it is quite simply irritating. Irritating also is the fact that Flanagan, enamoured by his own verbal talent, often gives in to the temptation to show it off as, for instance, in the unkind and unnecessarily 'humorous' description of the poor Heyney family across the road.
It is a great pity that this look-at-me style writing stands between reader and subject matter: Immigrants dislocated between two cultures and their valiant, life-long effort to fit in.
I loved "The Narrow Road to the Deep North" and "Wanting," so I ordered this one and was hugely disappointed. I read 300 out of 413 pages and finally admitted to myself that I just was not enjoying the ride at all, and that was that. Many, many people love the book's writing style; but I found it self-conscious in a "Look, Ma! I'm crafting LITERATURE over here!" way. I did not have that reaction to "Narrow" or "Wanting," so I attribute it to trying too hard by an author finding his voice in the early going.
