5.0 out of 5 stars some great canadiana, Oct. 1 2001
By 
This review is from: Some Great Thing (Paperback)
Mahatma Grafton is a university graduate who, having no idea what he wants to do with his life, returns to his hometown of Winnipeg to work for a newspaper. Over the course of his first year on the job, he discovers purpose in his life, with the help of a colourful array of characters, including a welfare crusader, a burned-out fellow reporter, an unlikely french-language-rights activist, and a visiting journalist from Cameroon.
Aside from being incredibly well-written and entertaining, this book is an intelligent reflection of Canadian issues, including race, language, government policy and opinions regarding our American neighbors.
Some Great Thing is loosely connected to Hill's second book, Any Known Blood, which is also a fabulous read.

This review is from: Some Great Thing (Paperback)
I don't read much but I would like to say that this was a very good book. I read it for a school project and it was very interesting. I like the characters and it never makes you bored. Hope you like it just as much as I!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lawrence Hill, Some great thing., Nov. 19 2010
This review is from: Some Great Thing (Paperback)
Une histoire somme toute assez simple mais si bien racontée qu'elle en devient passionnante. Des personnages si bien décrits qu'ils prennent vie et on voudrait les connaître, quand on ne croit pas, tout bonnement, les connaître déja.L'écriture est aisée, claire, tout coule et s'enchaîne avec une facilité qui témoigne du labeur d'un grand écrivain. On voudrait lire tous ses livres tout de suite.
