I don't know what sort of tone the book set, but the abridged audio came across almost post-apocalyptic, although it's set in modern London. It just seemed so crazy, the riots, the gangs, no one safe except the politician in their ivory towers (all corrupt, of course), and the very structure of society seemingly breaking down. Perhaps it was a little over the top. I'm not sure I would be able to stay on board if I were reading the book. I couldn't quite tell what all the fuss was about. Then again, look what happened in Ferguson, and Baltimore. These days it doesn't seem to take much. Perhaps it was spot on.… (mere)

Gritty Aussie drama. A good mystery and love story in which you can almost feel the red grit on your hands as you read. A really good insight into life in the outback of Australia.

This one was an OK summer read but I kept feeling let down by it, as if it had promise but never quite lived up to it, neither with respect to well-developed interesting characters nor in terms of what was happening to them.
