    1. Hunter by Campbell Jefferys is simply a wonderful book. The coming of age of Eric Messer in Australia on the eve of the Iragi War is both helped and hindered by his parents, his friends, a girl and two old men who may not be exactly what they seem. The story is told with flashbacks to WWII breaking in with the tale of Eric and his family. Eric had moved to Perth with his family from the country where he was happy, where he fit in and where he knew what was what. His entrance into a new school wh [...]

    2. This book tells the tale about Eric Messer who transfers school when his family move. It is a difficult time for Eric who lives with his father and mother but clearly does not get on with his father and you can understand why! His mother is sympathetic to Eric’s plight but again is often afraid to stand up to her husband. It doesn’t seem a happy marriage.The other side of this story involves a German soldier who lives in the same town that Eric’s family have moved to. We hear about Fischer [...]

    3. Was Australia a haven for Nazi's?The book starts out with the story of a young, wounded soldier named Peter who deserts the German army in WWII to find refuge with a Polish couple. He is destined to leave Europe and moves to Australia to start a new life under a new name.This is also a coming of age story in the present about a young teen named Eric who is trying to fit in at his new school on the coast of Australia. He has issues with his parents who fight incessantly and he finds that surfing [...]

    4. I finally got the chance to read this after receiving it from a giveaway. I'd say it was interesting, the right amount of suspense, and the right amount of teenage angst, and a good amount of history. Enjoyed it as a good coming of age story as Eric tries to find his way through a new environment and discovers a lot of it's dark secrets.

    5. Disclaimer: I received this book from a giveaway. First of all, from the description I was expecting something like Stephen King's Apt Pupil. While there are some superficial similarities, these stories are nothing alike. This did take a little while to get going. But it is worth checking out if this is within your area of interests. I also really enjoyed that this was from an Australian perspective. It's nice to read something that is different from the typical (and far to prevalent) American [...]

    6. Won from About Eric his family the fact he has just moved his relationship with his parents.Eric is also badly bullied at schools and out of school trying to find a way to fit in so this stops.He starts to to gardening etc for money and thus is where the story truly starts you'll get a history lesson of Germany and the war.

    7. I received this book as a Giveaway. It was entertaining, but a slow start. I am interested in stories that relate to WWII and this one had an interesting twist of telling two stories at one time. One of exiles from WWII and their intersection with a young man in Australia. It was different than I expected, but an enjoyable read, nonetheless.

    8. The book contains two stories that have are linked by a book.The first story tells of the backstory of a minor character in the other story and how he came about the book and it’s journey to Australia. The lead in this story is peter is a Nazi solider who escapes from the eastern front, following his patrol being hit by a shell and discovering the book on another solider. During his journey home he befriends both Jews and polish, as well as ending up in the middle of Allied bombing of German c [...]
