    One thought on “Freycinet”

    1. ‘Hindsight is 20-20.’Ginny O’Byrne and her fiancé Julian Rockliffe travel to Freycinet National Park where they’ll be staying at Devil Lodge in the shadow of the Hazards. As they drive into Freycinet, Ginny finds the Hazards disquieting: both brilliant and disturbing. The colours of the landscape seem to overwhelm her, making her disoriented and dizzy. And we know, through Ginny’s musings on the drive, that she is wanting Julian to change back to the way he was up until six months ear [...]

    2. Freycinet contains all the things that I find intriguing and interesting about Tasmania, its beauty, its dramatic scenery, its essential, inherent danger.

    3. I loved this book. The writing is beautiful and evocative, and the mystery (mysteries really) kept me reading until the end. Couldn't put it down.

    4. Nope! Can't do it. Life is too short to waste reading crap. I persevered until chapter 17 and then gave up. It reads like poor written teen fan fiction. The mistakes in it were terrible and inexcusable, poor editing! Such as, describing the cabin furniture as golden then a few chapters later saying the restaurant had 'blood red furniture' just like the cabin. Ginny also said Julian 'changed' six months earlier when he came back from London and that she first noticed it when she went to meet him [...]

    5. Amazing - Outstanding - Captivating - Definitely a must read on everyone's list! Perfectly described and gripping until the very last word!

    6. I don't know - I wanted to like this book - I really did but I struggled with some of the back story. Too many gaps and inconsistencies for me. the ending was not at all what I expected - so I guess that was good - but it was also unbelievable because of the lack of backstory. I found the main character intriguing but felt let down with the other characters.
