1st Wednesday Book Group – Discussion Notes

The 1st Wednesday Group discussed


Eureka: the unfinished revolution by Peter Fitzimmons



  • Peter’s style is demeaning of anyone of the establishment. He has a sneering style.
  • Peter has written a book that is too verbose – wordy.
  • A good editor could have cut the book by about two thirds and it would have been a more enjoyable read.
  • Readers in the group learnt a lot of background information about Eureka.
  • Readers were upset by how the colonists treated others.
