I agree with Natalie - I didn't like any of the characters. For a book that made it to the best sellers, it left me disappointed. I really dislike how a book feels the need to include overtly sexual passages when it does nothing to add to the storyline - just because it's a book for adults. The characters include paedophiles, rapists, cheaters and alcoholics, but nothing is done to them to make any feel any kind of remorse. I wanted justice for the innocents of the novel and never got it! And "the slap"? Merely used as a way to link the characters. I was waiting for a heated debate between characters that involved more than scowls and characters thinking to themselves that the others are liars. I wanted to see the court scene in full, to feel repercussions across the families - and yet all the reader gets is brief mentions of it between people *********** and cheating on each other. The writer has skill - the use of different characters for each chapter was good - but the content left me angry that these immature characters are thought of as "suburban Australian people" and the lack of resolution left me pissed more

A great topic for the times - Enjoyed the subject matter, the characters, the plot and reading so many viewpoints from eight different characters about what has proven to be a very contentious topic: To smack or not to smack. It is a rewarding read!show more

I did not enjoy this book very much. I thought it was boring: I could not warm to the characters, the plot was not interesting and the exchanges between the characters superficial. I wonder why it was so highly ranked in the bestsellers more
