    One thought on “The Outback”

    1. A group of backpackers in Australia come together in a remote rural town in Queensland to do some casual work, problems start when a new Manager is appointed, the backpackers believe the Manager is a former criminal and when one of the group is assaulted by a local whilst walking into town they go and report the assault to the Police, after this more trouble brews between the backpackers and the Manager leading to murder. I found the story a bit predictable, the author kept referring to the back [...]

    2. This was quite a good thriller, set in Queensland, Australia and featuring a group of backpackers from various backgrounds employed at an isolated location to clear some fields. Sadly, neither the Australian setting nor the characters themselves really came to life for me so, although the storyline was okay and quite gripping at the end, it left me a bit cold. Don't really know why but could therefore only award it 3 stars on reflection - 6.5/10.

    3. Probably the best thing I liked about the book was the front cover. Everything between the front cover and the back one was for the most part rehashed mush borrowed from countless better novels. The story actually starts off fairly strong, but quickly nose dives into incredulity and mediocrity. The plot is so simple as to resemble a nursery rhyme and I could see what was going to happen chapters before it actually did. The "Burned Beyond Recognition" angle has been used for millenniums. It's a p [...]

    4. "The Outback" by David Clarkson was a chance find for me. I have a thing for travel and backpack stories and jumped at this book which follows a group of international younger people on a work assignment in the outback, clearing fields for three months.The world is full of possibilities, visa problems and living in the moment. Beer, love, smoking and discovering the world, but the real world catches up with them in form of a nasty supervisor, the hostile nature and clashes with the law and the w [...]

    5. When a group of backpackers head to Birribandi for three months of 'stick picking' the experience has all the promise of 'Butlins in Beirut' as one of them puts it. However, in addition to the hardships of living and working in the out back they weren't counting on meeting the malicious Rhett Buttler, who is not only acting as their manager but is also a man of shady character. This thriller starts off quite well and is easy to read but I did find it lost pace around the 40% Mark and didn't real [...]

    6. Enjoyable mystery with adventure.I liked reading about these adventurous young adults trying to backpack through Australia. Needing a temporary job to extend visas bring several people together in the outback. Unfortunately, they find much trouble. I liked the plot, characters, and the author's writing style. Nice, easy read that was hard to put down.
