    ePUB Robert Drewe Æ The Drowner ePUB ↠ Æ drowner epub, The Drowner PDFSuperb lyrical writing such that you almost hear the Moody Blues' Seventh Sojourn playing in the background this is a book that takes you back to those deep meaningfulless metaphysical discussions of your youthForget the idealistic young English engineer Will Dance a drowner at heart; forget the beautiful self centred and damaged actress Angelica; forget Inez the young Melbourne socialite now cleaning maggots from the wounds of miners on the Goldfields; forget the visionary CY O'Connor whose pipeline brought water hundreds of miles from the coast to Kalgoorlie and who was then driven to suicide by public ridicule; forget Felix Locke the poetry writing hypochondriac undertaker Forget them all because the main character of this book is water in all its splendor and terror its over abundance and absence its ability to give life or to take it away Think of water and you think of the soft words fluid flowing mellifluous Such is the writing of this book it seeps and creeps

    ePUB Robert Drewe Æ The Drowner ePUB ↠ Æ drowner epub, The Drowner PDFThere are many things to like about the poetic nature of Drewe’s writing and I was fascinated by his presentation of life in Perth and the Goldfields in particular being a Western AustralianHowever there were many times I found the plot surrounding Will and Angelica really boring Particularly the early part of the book first 100 or so pages Plus the random perspectives of Felix Inez and Axel seemed to confuse than add to the storySome very nice touches but a bit too much of a chore
