[Book Review] Breath: A Novel

leave a comment »

A Novelby Tim Winton

rating: 3 of 5 stars

Maybe I had too high expectations, and to be fair not many books will leave me feeling the same way as I did after I finished Cloudstreet. The style was similar for the most part — the almost melancholic nostalgia, but the ending lwft me hollow. After the wonderful parts about Pikelet’s adolecence, the South West surfie culture, the amazing descriptions of the sea and the weather… it all fell a little flat.
