    Too Close To Home ePUB ↠ Too CloseePUB Ð close pdf, home epub, Too Close kindle, Too Close To Home KindleAn interesting and thoughtful book about a lefty middle class family whose comfortable progressiveness is challenged by the discovery of a child they didn't know existed Blain is a lovely exacting writer but the emotions at the core of this book didn't really connect with me Matt and Freya's relationship didn't have the same spark as say Freya's relationship with her best friend Anna Still nice to read a contemporary Australian novel concerned with politics at both the macro and micro levels

    Too Close To Home ePUB ↠ Too CloseePUB Ð close pdf, home epub, Too Close kindle, Too Close To Home KindleI think that this book is well written the prose is lovely and at times it is insightful However by the end of it I felt that something was lacking to make it a really good book one that would leave a mark on me Maybe it was that the protagonist didn't really seem to struggle at all and that her problems seemed a bit too self indulgent for me to really care I didn't really care for any of the characters to be

    Too Close To Home ePUB ↠ Too CloseePUB Ð close pdf, home epub, Too Close kindle, Too Close To Home KindleI found this book strangely compelling I read it uite uickly I found I couldn't put it down which I am a bit surprised at as I actually loathed almost everyone in this book except for the kids This is an uncomfortable look at white middle class life in Australia I say 'uncomfortable' not just because uncomfortable writing is part of the story but it did genuinely make me uncomfortable because I could see myself We white middle class folk do tend to sit around in our privileged bubbles moaning about right wing politics I too threatened to leave the country if Tony Abbott became PM and the state of the world But we are mostly detached from the realities of the actual state of the world and completely impotent unable or unwilling to actually 'do something about it' And that leads me to my problems with the characters I am willing to admit I saw glimmers of myself and my world in this book but these characters I think are extremes I didn't uite know what to make

    Too Close To Home ePUB ↠ Too CloseePUB Ð close pdf, home epub, Too Close kindle, Too Close To Home KindleI really liked this book The author’s style of writing appeals to me and I always feel that there is honesty and truth in the way she expresses herself A relatively simple read but the characters are fleshed out fairly well and you get a real sense that you are almost an interloper in their lives

    Too Close To Home ePUB ↠ Too CloseePUB Ð close pdf, home epub, Too Close kindle, Too Close To Home KindleAs a whole the book didn’t uite hold together for me but there were some elements to the book which were really interestingThis book is essentially a domestic drama with politics eg looking at race class woven into it The protagonist Freya a white middle class educated woman and her friends often talk about politics generally on a national scale how the government is failing etc But Freya is faced with politics on a personal level during the novel she meets several people from different backgrounds and many of her biases come bubbling to the surface She grapples with her co

    Too Close To Home ePUB ↠ Too CloseePUB Ð close pdf, home epub, Too Close kindle, Too Close To Home Kindle3 12 starsThe first few chapters did not inspire me to read much further –I don’t know why they just did not engage me but I forged on and soon found myself totally engrossed in this narrative It is a gently told story of relationships of how the individual person can be political and of modern day suburban Australia and I am pleased I read this book It did make me think it made me a little sad; the revealing of personal prejudices personal stories which for me asked one important uestion – how do you describe and define family Although written a few years ago the political references and conundrums haven’t changed they are still relevant today; including but not limited to climate change refugees Indigenous rights une

    Too Close To Home ePUB ↠ Too CloseePUB Ð close pdf, home epub, Too Close kindle, Too Close To Home KindleI wanted to like this book I truly did I really loved Closed for Winter – Blain’s haunting poignant 1998 novel that I believe is now a movie staring Natalie Imbruglia – and the cover image of this book appealed to me but in the end I felt a bit underwhelmed by it It’s not that the premise isn’t good The story is narrated by a middle aged playwright called Freya and centres around the discovery that her husband Matt may have had another child he didn’t know about 17 years ago At the same time an old friend of Matt’s moves onto their street and forces Freya to think about the complex feelings she and society still consciously or subconsciously has towards AboriginesStrange
