The world without us

Ali The World without us

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel which is on the Stella prize shortlist but after reading very mixed reviews on Goodreads, wondered if we had all read the same story. I guess this is the beauty of reading, the same book gives each reader something different.

Living in a bush setting and surrounded by nature, I related to the farm and the anxiety over our ‘developing’ world and climate change. The human element in the story was  also threatened with family relationships suffering as the characters got lost in their own troubles.
