'Everyone agreed that the day was just right for the picnic to Hanging Rock - a shimmering summer morning warm and still, with cicadas shrilling...'

St Valentine's Day, in the midst of the hot summer of 1900, a party of schoolgirls went on a picnic to Hanging Rock. Some were never to return....

An Australian classic, the disappearance of three girls and a schoolteacher at Hanging Rock has captivated and intrigued audiences for generations. Jacqueline McKenzie's interpretation of the best-selling novel captures all of the beauty of the Rock and illustrates the eerie sense of the unknown for which the story is legendary.

    " Quite a strange read, apparently written by the author in her elderly years, and set back in Victorian times, fascinating detail of the boarding school and the people in it, and the headmistress especially, but the plot got a bit lost I thought.... "

    " I loved the movie made from this book as a teenager and the book has the same haunting sense of dread that the movie conveyed so well. This is the fourth novel I have read from the "Ten Aussie Books to read before you die" list from "The First Tuesday Book Club". Set at the beginning of the twentieth century it captures the essence of colonial life and the danger and isolation of the Australian bush. Australian gothic horror. "

    " Eerie tale, but leaves the mystery up to the reader's intrepretations on what exactly is happening to the school girls. It reminded me of an movie I watched in the late 80s early 90s called Watcher in the Woods. I would recommend this book for a good mystery if nothing else. "
