Top 40 Book Club : Top 40 Book Club Reads 2014
FICTION 19 BOOK CLUB READS Top 40 BARRACUDA Christos Tsiolkas Christos Tsiolkas, author of The Slap, is back with his fifth novel Barracuda. A provocative Australian novel that follows the journey of Danny Kelly, who has grown up with one goal – to win the 100m freestyle at the Olympics. Along the way, his parents struggle to send him to a private school with an elite swimming program, where Danny strives to be the best and eventually earns the nickname ‘Barracuda’. Like The Slap, Barracuda holds a mirror up to modern Australia, identifying the behaviours of parents and the pressure placed on their children to win. Tsiolkas provides many topics for book clubs to discuss in this fantastic novel.
