    One thought on “The Kingdom Where Nobody Dies”

    1. I liked it, the writing style was clean and undemanding, the main character was consistent and believable and the plot was engaging. I was tickled by having it set in QLD and especially in Brisbane, since I live in Brisbane it was enjoyable to read a book set here.The faults in the novel were what I tend to think of as endemically Australian literary faults in that you see them over and over again in Australian writing, every country has these endemics I think. • There was one main character a [...]

    2. Very distinctly a crime/detective novel but an interesting look at childhood and grief. I feel like Madeline's cancer was bought in and not used/didn't serve a purpose. It's eerie reading a story set where you live, especially a crime novel like this, almost felt like an autobiography. Quite engaging and authentic.

    3. An interesting journey into the time when a young girl is grieving for her mother. Living with her grandmother she's immersed in a new neighbourhood dealing with friendship, love and death. A murder mystery but one with an unusual structure.

    4. An audio book that I enjoyed on my way home from work. Fascinating to 'read' about the Brisbane River as I drove over it one afternoon. Based on the local area of Brisbane, I found it an interesting read.

    5. I found it hard to get into this book. Probably because the jumping from the past to the present didn't flow for me. I like mystery/crime stories but this one just didn't hit the right note Missable.
