    " This book and the others ones in this series (I've read them all) give one a view of life in the outback of Australia, incised and pared down to essentials. "

    " I love the use of 'native' Aussie 'things', the names of the natives, the description of the landscape, the rabbits, the boning... "

    " I enjoy the Boney stories .They are set in 1930's to 1950's in Australia sometimes in the city but predominantly in more rempte areas of the country "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter Metcalfe | 12/25/2012

    " the first book of Upfield that i read and one of many by the original man of mystery in the Australian landscape "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 12/7/2012

    " Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte is, in Australian lingo of the mid-20th century, a "half-caste." That is, he is half-Aborigine and half-white. Arthur Upfield might not have been the best mystery writer ever, but he did challenge white Australian stereotypes about the Aborigines. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bglass | 10/20/2012

    " Interesting look at 1940's Australia in the form of a mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesse | 7/9/2012

    " Arthur Upfield writes some intense mysteries, and he is uncanny at keeping the perpetrator a secret until the very end. The Bone is Pointed deals with many Australian aboriginal mysteries and is my favorite of his many books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharron | 5/4/2012

    " One of Upfield's better efforts because it evokes the Bush so well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 4/28/2012

    " Aboriginal shaman uses sympathetic magic in an attempt to harm Bony. This story goes into tribal beliefs and their interactions with whites in greater depth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard | 1/11/2012

    " Bony tracks a death in the bush and is cursed by the Blacks. He figures it out anyway. Okay. "

    " The Napoleon Bonaparte series of mysteries follows a brilliant half-caste detective in a skillfully evoked 1930's Australia. Fascinating view into another culture and time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William Doonan | 7/1/2011

    " I had never heard of Upfield until a friend told me about him. This is a very good book, dated, for sure, and loaded with the languages and prejudices of the time in which is was written. But it was a blast to read. "
