The brilliant and explosive new novel from the author of the award-winning The Museum of Modern Love.

Mehso-so

I‘m jumping on the “so-so” bandwagon with this bookclub read. I really liked her previous novel The Museum of Modern Love, but Bruny bore no resemblance as far as I could see.

Some interesting and very contemporary issues were explored, along with politics & some romance. It felt hastily thrown together.

The main character Astrid was reasonably well-drawn & the book made me really want to visit Tasmania.

Our last read for book club this year. I‘m looking forward to the discussion tonight.
A book I read earlier in the year inspired me to join a political party. Parts of this one made me feel like jumping off a cliff.
Luckily it had the sort of ending I like .
Writing this must have been very therapeutic for her . Seemed to me she got a lot “ off her chest” .
Wonder if it will do as well as her other prize winning book. @MrsMalaprop

MrsMalaprop Just finished it, in the nick of time! See you there tonight 😊. 3w

Our new episode of Books On The Go is up! 🎧

@mr_annie and I were thrilled to chat with Heather Rose about her new novel ‘Bruny‘. 🤩

Heather is best known for ‘The Museum of Modern Love‘ - it won multiple awards incl the 2017 Stella Prize. (SO much love for that book! 🥰).

‘Bruny‘ is a political satire set in Tasmania. A fun & thought-provoking mix of family drama, dystopia and spy thriller.
Have you read it? Love to hear your thoughts.

Freespirit I haven't read it. I loved The Museum of Modern Love. This will be a must read for me! 1mo
MrsMalaprop Just about to start for this month‘s book club 😊. 1mo

Bruny isn't a straight political thriller, in that it doesn't follow the formula of a hard-boiled detective chasing up clues and red herrings, but it‘s not a highbrow literary offering either. It sits where the political and the personal intersect, and meditates mostly on the wheeling and dealing of politics, the complexity of modern life. Rose leaves no stone unturned.

Set in near future. Astrid (Ace) is a UN negotiator who returns to Tasmania to help her brother (the premier) manage problems with a new bridge to Bruny Island. Evokes the beauty & isolation of Tasmania & its people. I found the bridge politics & protest groups clunky (info dumps) & far-fetched. The China storyline was troubling (but picks up on lots of current issues). A good thought experiment & fun read, but I didn‘t care what happened.
