What I’ve Been Reading

I recently finished reading The Riders by Australian author Tim Winton.

‘The Riders’ was a gripping novel and I finished the bulk of its 377 pages in 3 consecutive evenings.

This book is set largely in Europe although the main characters, a man, his wife and their daughter, are Australian. It is thoroughly researched and the author showed intimate knowledge of Greece, Ireland, Italy and the Netherlands amongst other locations.

The characters were also very well developed.

‘The Riders’ could have been an amazing novel instead of an excellent one if only I could make more sense of it.

I agree with the first Spotlight Review (scroll down the page) at Amazon.com almost to a word.

Overall, I highly recommend people read ‘The Riders’ although it could have been better.
