The 1st Wednesday Reading Group discussed Tim Winton‘s ‘The turning‘ in June.
Tim Winton is an acclaimed Australian author and has written great deal of books in recent years. He has won quite few literature awards.
Some members in the group didn’t enjoy Winton’s writing, but thought the book was rather clever written, especiall his characters were very well done and stories were interwaven.
Someone thought Michael Leunig reminds her of Tim Winton.
Some members liked Tim Winton’s books and would like to read ‘The turning’ again because they thought he wrote very well – haunting, melancholy and bleak but thought provoking. Life is a struggle really. The small town in ‘The turning’ struggles.
