True History of the Kelly Gang (read 5/10/08) Recommended

The colloquial style was initially disconcerting (it’s 19th C Australian, mate) but it’s an entertaining, and educational, excursion through the past and speaks to the universal situation of the working class.

Oscar and Lucinda (read 6/1/08) Meh.

I found the characters engaging to a degree but not enough to overcome the confused narrative. Only got 1/4 way through before I put it aside.
