Top 40 Book Club : Top 40 Book Club Reads 2019
34 TOP 40 BOOK CLUB READS FICTION What should I read next? The Broken Shore by Peter Temple The Shepherd’s Hut Tim Winton Probably Australia’s best-known contemporary novelist, Tim Winton is renowned for his ruminations on the sea and coastal life, but for this story, he heads deep into the red centre of the country. Jaxie Clackton, the novel’s (unreliable) narrator, lurches from mishap to mistake and misadventure, all before he even reaches the shepherd’s hut, and then things really start to go awry. He’s not alone in the hut, but his companion is equally ravaged, and the future they start to shape shimmers in the desert heat, melts, and their separate fates await. This is classic Winton, perfectly pitched, cleverly paced and a masterclass in the use of language and development of character. Borrow the e-book through BorrowBox now!
