Pageturners May Discussion
Pageturners had lots to talk about when discussing Tim Winton’s Number 1 best-selling novel The Shepherd’s Hut this month. Pageturners rated the book mostly 4 out of 5 stars with a 2 and a 3 in the mix.
Words such as compelling, evocative, character-centred, complex, thought-provoking, bittersweet, bleak, small-town, austere, stark, thoughtful, uncomfortable and powerful were used to describe the book.
