Book Review – Bridge Burning and Other Hobbies

Cover image for Bridge burning : & other hobbies / Kitty Flanagan.

By Kitty Flanagan

If, like me, you enjoy comedian Kitty Flanagan’s sense of humour give her book a go. To enjoy it even more get it as an audiobook as she reads it. It’s like one of her stand up routines in book form (that’s why I’m suggesting the audiobook). Warning – If listening to this in public you will get odd looks as you spontaneously burst out laughing.

Book Review – Ten Rouges

Ten Rogues : The unlikely story of convict schemers, a stolen brig and an escape from Van Diemen's Land to Chile - Peter Grose

By Peter Grose

A fascinating account of convicts on Sarah Island who escaped to Chile on a brig they had built themselves. Taken from personal writings of those involved. A really interesting read, with lots of historical information included.
