    In 1901 a remarkable heroine made her debut, in a book that purports to be her autobiography.If you took equal amounts of Becky Sharp, Cassandra Mortmain and Angel Devereaux, if you mixed them together, with verve and brio, and you might achieve a similar result, but you wouldn t quite get there, because Sybylla Melvyn is a true one off.She s also nearly impossible to explain a curious mixture of confidence and insecurity, tactlessness and sensitivity, forthrightness and thoughtfulness She s In 1901 a remarkable heroine made her debut, in a book that purports to be her autobiography.If you took equal amounts of Becky Sharp, Cassandra Mortmain and Angel Deve...

    I was expecting a muchenjoyable read than this since I have mainly enjoyed the Australian novels I have read in the past This is a classic and there is no doubt that this writer had talent and I can see why she later made a career out of writing, but this novel, which was written when she was 16 has a protagonist who was apparently ahead of her time yes and...

    I have a bit of a love hate relationship with this book.For its time, and the fact that it was written by Franklin when she was a teenager , it is a brilliant novel The writing ability that Franklin had so young is amazing she manages to capture so much of Australia, and her protagonist, Sybylla, lives and breathes from the first moment she steps onto the page.I did find Sybylla to be a frustrating protagonist, due to her gener...

    I read this for year 12 English, so my memories of it are both vague and tainted by the fact that I had to dissect the book End result though I still love it.When I started the book, I found it very difficult to get in to The protagonist just seemed to be a whining, demanding, annoying excuse for a human being It s really tough to keep reading when you start to hate the character telling the story In fact, I recall a first impressions essay I wrote after reading very little of the book wh I read this for year 12 English, so my mem...
