All Our Shimmering Skies, by Trent Dalton

Reviewed by Lilia - Berkelouw Paddington


As someone who really didn't like or enjoy 'Boy Swallows Universe' I was awestruck by how much I enjoyed 'All Our Shimmering Skies'. Its a books within which Daltons writing style has florished. In 'Shimmering Skies' Dalton's writing feels like a gentle pat on the back but with time you realise he’s patting you with sandpaper which tears at your skin. His words are poetic and lyrical but the story beneath is raw and gritty.

If you were a fan of 'Boy Swallows Universe' you will not be dissapointed, and if you weren't give 'Shimmering Skies' a go, you may end up quite surprised like me.
