Review: FLY AWAY PETER by David Malouf

One Great War has reviewed Fly Away Peter by David Malouf for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

Beautifully written, very poetical, and manages to lift you above the mess while still somehow plunging you deeper into it (take that, snide seventeen-year-old self).

Review: FLY AWAY PETER by David Malouf

Beauty is a Sleeping Cat recently reviewed Fly Away Peter by David Malouf for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

There really are numerous ways to write about war.

Review: THE GREAT WORLD by David Malouf

greatworldMatt of Matt’s Book Blog recently reviewed The Great World by David Malouf.  Here’s an excerpt:

Robbed of their chance to contribute in the major event of their generation, they are taken prisoner by the Japanese in Malaya. The POW experience is the center of the novel. One theme is the brutal reality of working as slave labors on the Burma Siam railway, but another is the meaning that a POW extracts from the experience.
