Whales have always been the life-force of Angelus, a small town on the south coast of Western Australia. Their annual passing defines the rhythms of a life where little changes, and the town depends on their carcasses. So when the battle begins on the beaches outside the town, and when Queenie Cookson, a local girl, joins the Greenies to make amends for the crimes of her whaling ancestors, it can only throw everything into chaos.

    " A riveting book by a great storyteller. Set in 1978. A dying Australian whaling town - the past into a roiling present and the last days of whaling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anthony Eaton | 7/15/2012

    " This is another beautiful work by Winton. His ability to evoke character through subtext is one of his strengths as a writer, and in this novel it's well in evidence. "

    " Gorgeous use of language and clear deep storytelling. Would be interested to see how his latest novel translated to the stage. "

    " A bit disappointed with this one. I have read "Cloudstreet" and it was amazing. I had to make myself finish this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 8/29/2010

    " I struggled through this one a little. I didn't connect to the characters as much as I'd have liked. But the poetry of the ending was sublime. Winton is not only a master story teller, he's a true poet as well. "

    " Quite a good book,although I felt it went on a bit. having said that, tho, I felt it stay with me for a long time afterwards.
    Personally, I thought it was not one of his best - a bit boring at times. "
