My main objection is in the proliferation of Aussie terms, making it difficult to follow the thread of thought while navigating so much unfamiliar slang. The same happens with names of people and organizations -- too many variations, etc. to comfortably keep track of. A good editor could have pointed these things out and helped maintain their distinctive "voice" while making the narrative a smoother read. Not that we have to be comfortable, but the overall effect was bumpy and disagreeable for the wrong reasons.
Too many acronyms and people mentioned without an explanation of who they are.
The last few chapters dragged on and on. Too much unnecessary detail.

The chapters written by Nigel were wonderful and, after reading "House in The Sky", I really enjoyed getting Nigel's perspective. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Jennifer Phaneuf
I didn't like so many perspectives being shared & I didn't like all the swearing. I liked hearing Nige's perspective.Published 13 months ago by Jennifer Ingraham
I would have enjoyed this book more, if it were written by Nigel himself. The long, self indulgent chapters written by his sister and sister-in-law, put me off. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Tracy Young
I read Amanda’s book as well and this one is definitely worth the time but read hers first if you are going to read both. Read morePublished 19 months ago by JB
