Book Review: Breath by Tim Winton - Reviewed by hibbo04 (15 Jun 2011)
Breath by Tim Winton is a book that took me back to my childhood growing up in Perth. The way he describes the south coast of Western Australia, the bays and waves is exactly how most people that have been there and surfed the waves would remember them. The story is uplifting and fresh. This was the first Winton book I have read and I now understand how so many people rave about it. I was given the book while suffering a bout of depression and couldnt find the motivation to read it. I now wish I did. I would rate this book 10 out 10 for the way it lifts the spirit and the way it bought me back to happier times. Tim Winton is going to be an Australian icon.
