The Shark Net has been added to your Cart. The subtitle of this book is "Memories and Murder", but in fact it is mostly memories. Robert Drewe tells the story of his coming of age in Perth, West Australia, which is usually depicted as a far-away lonely place, but when it is the place where you grew up, it is just defined as home. Most of the book, I would say 80%, is his own family story, full of humor and pathos as they all are.

The Shark Net. I really liked this book, it was incredibly easy to read, not to mention enjoyable. A great little lesson in a piece of Australian history that is seemingly unknown by Generation Y (I'm 17, and had no previous knowledge of this tale), Robert Drewe uses his writing talent to the nth degree in a book which covers the funny and the saddening.
