    Description Darius and Humphrey are on mission to find the real Australia not just he folklore and the misconceptions so they embark on a journey across the globe through London, Canada, Munich and Australia itself in order to find what it truely means to be Australian Then the fun really begins as they open up a real Aussie bar in Munich and try to teach their patrons a thing or two about Australia and its history.Review I wasn t really sure if I liked this book when I first started reading it [...]

    I really enjoyed reading this book I m fortunate to be a Canadian living in Australia and I found this book at the right time I ve been here long enough to reach my own conclusions about Australia but am still far enough of an outsider for my view to be altered somewhat I enjoyed Jefferys writing style, he really captivates with his story telling I honestly wasn t too sure what to expect when I picked up this novel The only other Australian fiction I d read left me disappointed I won t say what [...]

    What is the real Australia like The author will slowly guide the reader to his understanding of Australia purely from his perspective He tells the reader of the myths surrounding the true Australia and then sets about showing the reader the reality Darius and Humphrey are the main characters They will guide the reader through the beauty that is Australia A portion of the book shows the Australian landscape and people while the other parts of the novel are portrayed from an outsider s perspective [...]

    Digger is one of those fine characters you rarely discover This Aussie is a conflicted, patriotic, gentleman, easily lead and rarely in control of his environment But he s giving it hell Searching for the heart of Australia when he can t seem to find it in his own epic father His chance meeting with a fellow wanderer, Humphrey discovers new vistas and invigorating possibilities Should he give up the back country ways as the son of the famous sheep shearer Ripper, seemingly known by all he encoun [...]

    An interesting read recommended to me by my husband As Canadians living in rural Australia, it provided an accurate and entertaining picture of Australian identity, while highlighting the parallels between the two countries Like in Canada, a coherent sense of nationalism has been manufactured through commercials and first world war battles Coming from a farm in Canada, the theme of the pressures of growing up in a rural area struck me as similar and true as well Nice to read it from a male point [...]

    Every country has it s own complex history, follow two young Australians as they sort it out first at home and then abroad What of our history to we claim, ignore, deny How does it shape us as a people and individuals Good read for any who are interested in Australia in particular or culture in general My copy was a gift through First Reads.

    Received a copy of True Blue Tucker by Campbell Jeffreys through the GoodReads First Reads Giveaway program in exchange for an honest review The current situation in Australia is open to interpretation Where some see social harmony and liberal equality, others see racial and religious intolerance, social discord and marked inequality Fortunately, as the vast majority of Australians live in the suburbs they are not confronted with the moors of their own society They can go home to their mortgaged [...]

    This is a thought provoking book that looks at a lot of different topics including prejudices, hypocrisies, realities and ideals I liked the character of Darius He was flawed but he was trying He had dreams, goals, fears and short comings that were relatable He wanted to fit in and be accepted but also wanted to stand out and be someone extraordinary as he fought against normality Darius has a lot of contradictions and competing thoughts and emotions as does his best mate Humphrey, although Hump [...]
