FREE READ Î The Touch Not since The Thorn Birds has Colleen McCullough written a novel of such broad appeal about a family and the Australian experience as The Touch At its center is Alexander Kinross remembered as a young man in his native Scotland only as a shiftless boilermaker's apprentice and a godless rebel But when years later he writes from Australia to summon his bride his Scottish relatives uickly realize that he has made a fortune in the gold fields and is now a man to be reckoned with Arriving in Sydney after a difficult voyage the sixteen year old Elizabeth Drummond meets her husband to be and discovers to her dismay that he frightens and repels her Offered no choice she marries him and is whisked at once across a wild uninhabited countryside to Alexander's own town named Kinross after himself In the crags above it lies the world's richest gold mine Isolated in Alexander's great. I am annoyed that I allowed myself to get sucked into reading this book The characterizations manage to be both simplistic and inconsistent both within themselves and compared with actual humans The plot is contrived melodramatic and not remotely credible The way the characters relate among one another is also absurd they constantly make speeches about How Much They ve Learned while acting simultaneously immature and world weary I finally dropped the book in disgust when I got to the part where a twelve month old not only speaks in complete sentences but makes insightful observations about the moods health and motivations of the adults around her Oh Please That s not a novel that s a fantasy comic book Do NOT waste your time Knights vs Dinosaurs difficult voyage the sixteen year old Elizabeth Drummond meets her husband to be and Goodnight Moon discovers to her A Hundred Summers dismay that he frightens and repels her Offered no choice she marries him and is whisked at once across a wild uninhabited countryside to Alexander's own town named Kinross after himself In the crags above it lies the world's richest gold mine Isolated in Alexander's great.
