✓ Read Õ Wildlight by Robyn Mundy ¼ I loved the setting I thought the author captured Tasmania really well very rare for me to say that.
I liked Stephanie and Tom as characters I also thought the supporting cast were strong, even when I didn t like them per se.
Despite the above, I didn t particularly care for the book It felt a bit slow and ponderous for my particular taste, and I m not loving the ending.
Not the right book for me.
I enjoyed this book for the snippets and descriptions of Tasmania I could get but I was slightly disappointed in the story I would have liked to have had the relationship between Tom and Stephanie a little fleshed out I felt that it was skimmed over but not explored in depth This was sixteen year old Stephanie s first love, surely the author could have devoted a bit to that relationship I did enjoy how the drama of what occurred unfolded and found that part of the story really captured my interest I am still undecided about whether or not I am satisfied with the ending I feel slightly let down but then again can understand the author s decision to end it as she did I am fascinated now to learn about Ma This is a story about place and the way we inhabit the most remote places on Earth To a lot of Tasmanians, Maatsuyker Island is tiny jewel, out of reach for all but the most ardent nature lovers To me, the wilderness that makes up the South Cape, is a place where life clings on tenaciously and where the natural world slowly goes about life, death and renewal The fact that the author Robyn Mundy spent six months on Maatsuyker before writing this book means that she is one of the few people to know this place intimately.
At first I thought that it was a young adult offering, but as I read on Maatsuyker started weaving it s way into my thoughs Wild places can do that I wondered at the endurance of the fishing community that venture into danger every time they set sail, even today the Southern Ocean can be an unpredictable place Large swells and gales ar Loved this book set in my home state The description of Maatsuyker Island and the south west coast was stunning The complexities of the characters and their relationships were heartbreaking but beautifully portrayed A beautiful read.

Wonderful Heart filling, real and beautifully written.
Where do I begin What a joy to read Wild Light caught me in a wave of words and held me in its swirl until I finished I got caught up in the beauty of the landscape and longed to go there even though I hate the cold Robyn s evocative images captured the raw beauty of Steph s island home I was enthralled from start to finish and thoroughly enjoyed the novel.

Wildlight was an awesome read Mundy s writing style is easy flowing and very evocative Perfect descriptions of Tasmania s natural beauty abound on almost every page It s so easy to feel like you are actually there with the characters, especially when the story is located in Tasmania s South West which is most of the book.
It is very clear from reading this book that the author has firsthand knowledge and experience of not only the settings for this story but of being a caretaker of a lighthouse as well Her time spent researching and experiencing settings and events for this story definitely proved worthwhile.
Not only does Mundy have a way with words but she also creates characters that are very real and full of complexities Be it main protagon Made it to page 165 and then skimmed the rest of the way Somewhat overwritten you are uncomfortably aware of the author s turns of phrase, etc and I personally found it distracting The author s characters also don t fully resonate, and the plot is full of literary fiction cliches Two stars instead of one because I think the premise was interesting, and the first quarter third was reasonably compelling, but it failed to meet its promise.
