I didn’t have to think twice when I was deciding which book deserves this accolade. I think this is a book that all people should read – yes it might make you feel a little uncomfortable at times, yes it is sometimes brutal and it is hard to believe that this sort of thing is happening in modern Australia ( and this issue not endemic to Australia – it is world wide.)
This narrative is exceptionally well written. It is emotional, it is challenging, it is heartbreaking and it shares shocking life altering truths. Thank you to all the brave women and families who shared their painful intimate stories. Thanks you to Megan Norris for revealing these stories with candour and without sensationalism . Education is the key. Awareness is needed.
The most moving book I have read in such a long time:
Look What You Made Me Do, Fathers Who Kill
I remember how much you enjoyed this when you posted about it, Carol. It certainly sounds like a powerful read!
Very powerful Margot – a book that stays with you long after you turn the last page
A very powerful and moving read – definitely worthy of this title! So thankful I had the opportunity to stay with you and purchase this book. I have also ordered ‘What Came Before’ and ‘The War on Women’!
Excellent- are you reviewing too Nicky?
Hi! Unfortunately I am not reviewing just getting back into enjoying reading (thanks to you!). I will order ‘An Isolated Incident’ now. Loving the blog!
Thanks Nicky – I had some great reads last year – and looking forward to more again. Glad you have re discovered the joy of reading!
You will really enjoy “An Isolated Incident ” if you get a chance to read this.
Thanks for bringing this one to my attention Carol.
Tracey this is a great read!
