The Real Outback

I've never been to The Land Down Under, but with the amazing detail in the writing, I sure felt lije I was there! The story line drags a bit, but being this is book 1 in a series, I suppoe that is to be expected.

Good read.

The book is basically about greed that fosters hate, murder, deceit and all other soe,rts of evil. It has a lot of violence and darkness in it. Not worth the read in my oppinion. The only character that I liked, is Samantha. The others were not developed enough or were too dark in my opinion. I couldnt really follow the plot. There were too many characters with their own story and agenda and just not intertwined enough to make a whole lot of sense. This was the book I read by this author and I will not read another one. There is an understanding in the book that Jesus saves but no understanding about His love and grace for us. Some if the characters get saved but still dont walk in their new life. They are still caught up in Old Testament thinking, i.e. revenge, that it veils Jesus and allows the violence and evil be on the forefront in the chracters. Even Samantha never resolves her own search for God. While the violent ending is appropriate for the book, it fails to bring the story to an end and create some type of peace. Had it not been for the character of Samantha, I would have put the book down, no later than midway through it. I should have. The sense of the spiritual darkness never left, which is sad. I questioned several times throughout the book why it is called a Christian book. A Christian book allows the characters to get to know God's love and who He is and in turn draws the reader, himself or herself, closer to God. This book did not.

    Fun to read

    This book kept my attention. I especially enjoyed the "moral of the story" ending.

    I finished it but ---

    I can not really say that it was a truly great read. It lagged a lot, just sort of meandered around. Then in other places it made you sit up and take norice. Since I could not give a half star, I gave it a four star rating. Having been to Australia, I did appreciate her quite accurate descriptions of the country where the action takes place.
