Okay, I'm just going to jump on the bandwagon here and second all the reviews that said this book was lovely. Because it was. Really, really lovely. Set in the Australian Outback and telling the story about an Englishman searching for an elusive creature and guided by an Australian through the bush, I inevitably compared it to Kennedy and Ford's Dash and Dingo, which I loved. But whereas that book was much more focused on the action/adventure aspect of the tale, this one is driven very much by the development of the relationship between the two men. There's a lovely tension in the beginning and the couple are great together, but it's the ending where things sat a little skew for me. It ends very happily, but there are some unresolved things kind of hanging in the air and I'm left with a slightly dissatisfied feeling and a little bit of dread. But that's just me, don't let it deter you. This is a beautiful story, and I'm very glad I read it.
