An ok book. Good in the sense that it takes you for a walk in Melbourne. The plot is a bit redundant.

Review by

Possibly the only book I've ever read by an Australian author - or at least the only one I've read to have actually been situated in Australia.It's a fine book, a tale of a geologist that follows him from his middle-childhood through to college, and on to becoming a father. It is, at times, a sad story, of things going wrong, and about good guys who don't come first.
