The Slap – Christos Tsiolkas – Book Review

The Slap

The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas was on the ‘First Tuesdays Book Club’ 10 must read Aussie books before you die list, and I know why, I just loved it. It ticked all the boxes for a good read for me. The first chapter sets up the characters and then the book goes on to individualise all the characters  in a more personalised story.

If you love to read a book about relationships, this is a book for you, it embraces pretty much all facets of a multi cultural family, friendships, marriages, homosexuality, teenage vulnerability, parenting plus so much more.

I am now on the look out for one of Chris Tsiolkas other books that has recently been made into a movie ‘Dead Europe’
