Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Yes... I didn't realize this was BASED on true events. I know about the story of Alexander Pearce. And the events in this book DID take place. He was an escaped convict in Australia that partook in the flesh of the others he escaped with to survive. Then after his recapture.... did it again! That is true. But this is a novel. It is a fictional account of what happened during the trek through uncharted Australia. Yes... some of the events happened like this book says. Alexander Pearce did give them a pretty good account of what happened.(His account anyway) Some of the details are straight from his mouth. But a good portion of the book is filling in the blanks with fictional conversations and other things. I only read non-fiction so I was a little disappointed when I discovered it was historical fiction. But I will say it was a good book. Like I said, the true facts are there... with fiction filling in the blanks. A very interesting event and a good read. Just know that if you're looking for a true account of this event... this is PARTIALLY that. Alexander Pearce did NOT leave a journal behind.
