Customer Review

5 October 2015
Tim Winton's Island Home had the same effect on me as Robert Hughes's Fatal Shore had in that it shines a light on what it means to be an Australian. Tim's love for his island home is apparent on every page and I found it fascinating to read about how the landscape, sea and sense of place shaped not only him as a man, but his writing as well. I like the fact that he respects working people and loves the environment, clearly seeing the impact one has on the other. A beautiful book in every way.
