Ort knows that the sky is watching. He knows what it means to watch. Things are terribly wrong. His father is withering away, his sister is consumed by hatred, his grandmother is all inside herself, and his mother, a flower-child of the 1960s, is brave but helpless. Then a strange man appears at their door....

That Eye, the Sky is about love, about a boy's vision of the world beyond, about the blurry distinctions between the natural and the supernatural. All this, and more, begins at the moment the ute driven by Ort Flack's father ploughs into a roadside tree, throwing the whole world out of kilter.

    " In the beginning I thought that it was the worst book that I've read. But once I got over half way and learnt to look past the bad grammar, you start to see the underlying message. But in saying this I don't think I will ever read it again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie | 1/21/2014

    " this is some crazy shit. small town living and all its spasmodic glory. simple but genius. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 1/12/2014

    " I guess it's okay. The ending was better than the beginning. You really need to get used to the writing of the book, the way the main character(Ort, AKA Morton) sees things. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kezia | 8/1/2013

    " One of the greatest books ever! "

    " i read this so long ago, but i remember loving it and wishing it had been longer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Randall Longmire | 6/20/2013

    " A coming of age story with some subtle shocks. Classic Winton. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharyn O'neill | 6/8/2013

    " Life from a child's perspective. I felt this shorter story could have easily have become another winton epic piece. I left me wanting more. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hannah | 5/25/2013

    " I do not really remember anything about this book - neither good nor bad. I should probably read it again but for now I will give it two stars. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tash | 5/13/2013

    " I probably would have given this book 3 stars if it weren't for that horrible ending "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Taz | 1/6/2013

    " first book i'd read where people spoke strayan. city meets the country and kids grow up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doug | 12/22/2012

    " For some reason That Eye... reminds me of Beckett's waiting for Godot. Not that this is a bad thing, just that each page has a sense of something about to happen, but it never quite does! I particularly enjoyed the sustained narrative perspective of Ort, the young boy. Great read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan Mcbain | 8/11/2012

    " Great, quick read but ending a little disappointing and disturbing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lotus | 7/5/2012

    " Really enjoyed this book. Lovely to read and written gently, though the subject matter is harsh. Highly recommend this one for others that enjoy Winton's style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Timothy | 11/27/2011

    " How good is your grasp of Australian slang? That is the only factor that could impede your enjoyment of this seemingly simple but surprisingly potent novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 10/25/2011

    " Well, let's just say thus was actually a great book. I've read some of tim Wintons stuff before, specifically breath, and I think they're gret stories, but you just have to look past hiw bad they are, if that makes any sense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betsey | 8/10/2011

    " this book was a little more wack than Winton's usual fare. I got to the end and thought, "woah. I need to reread this book." so it sits on my bedside table, waiting for me to reread it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 10/9/2010

    " Vividly alive. Curious. Confused. Questioning. Life? Death? Faith? (Good. But found the end confusing. Or not something I'm willing to be involved in.) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 7/25/2010

    " This was my first book for university that I had to read and it was pretty interesting and wasn't putting me to sleep the slang was hilarious and a bit annoying but seriously... the ending???????????????

    That is all. "
