Journal Entry 1 by kirst040 from Sydney, New South Wales Australia on Wednesday, October 20, 2004

9 out of 10

"Andrew McGahan's prize-winning Praise is a stunningly frank and darkly humorous novel about being young in Australia. About living in a world where drugs and alcohol dominate, where sex scalds and soothes, where Social Security is easier to get than a job. Where survival means taking nothing and no one too seriously."

Very gritty and dark story, set in Brisbane in the 90's. A great book that was also made into a good film with the amazing Peter Fenton.

I'm half way through this book, and though it is a bit shocking and has a lot of swearing in it, the story is ok.It's set in brisbane which is the main appeal to me! I like to read books set in brisbane!
I think I will do a controlled release though at the next brisbane meet up as I don't think I should leave it anywhere in the wild where anyone might be offended by it!
