The Merry-Go-Round in the Sea ePUB
by Randolph Stow
Do not think less of anyone for hating this if they had to read it in high school. I had to as well and I despised this book. I actually grew up in Geraldton in the 70s and 80s and it seemed as though not much had changed since the 40s, excpept mabe for the war. Hated hated hated it. Trying to explain to some first year teacher from Perth that how utterly boring Robs life was compared to our own was a fruiless task. They just couldn't get it. Now go forward in time 20 years and I decided to give it another go, Penguin classic 10 bucks why not? I fell in love with this story. It actually was excatly like my childhood, except for the war, and actually made me miss my hometown a little. Just a little mind you, ask anyone who grew up in Gero and left, what they think of it and i'm pretty sure you'll understand. Stow writes from the heart and thats what I think I got out of it the second time. It made me miss my childhood but at the same time appreciate how lucky I was to grow up in Geraldton. So apolagies to my old english teachers for giving you so much grief over this book but for the love of God please don't inflict it on 15 year olds.
