One thought on “My Father's Moon

  1. Trevor

    I mean, how could you not read a book that was called that What a title This is the first of a series of three novels based on Jolley s life with Cabin Fever next and The George s Wife the last one I loved this book, but got stuck on Cabin Fever and never finished the three of them I ought to go back to them again and start over.But this one was very special.

  2. Ellen

    Vera is an interesting character Feels warm and secure in her family As a nurse in a military hospital being a student her eyes are opened wide by situations that life affords her and she experiences what life is about the good and the bad She then finds herself pregnant an unmarried mother, leaves home and travels to Fairfields, but she doesn t know what is in store for her there thinking it will be her saving grace, a place of poetry, music and interesting people.

  3. Sue Gould

    Read My Father s Moon and the two sequels as one long novel Took me a while to manage Jolley s style, which I found confusing, with lots of moving around between times, and events, and characters like scenes in a play which are unconnected, or only vaguely connected But once I became accustomed to this, and the pieces started to come together I enjoyed this book.

  4. Susan Austin

    Although it s much acclaimed, this book was too scatty for me It went back and forth and round and about and was just too vague and tangential for me to get into it The main character was not a nice person which didn t help I don t think I ll read the other two books that follow on although I m semi interested in seeing how her life unfolds.

  5. Georgie O'Dwyer

    I found it a bit tricky to read because it jumps around time frames, Vera is not a madly likeable character but it is the sort of book that will stay with you
