Book Description

As a consequence of the designs of evil men, several young people find themselves struggling to survive the collision of old nations on one side of the planet and the brutal birth of a new nation on the other. Within Savage Odyssey, the lives of these people are interlaced with major historical events, including the deaths of two of the most famous 19th century British and American Naval Heroes: Admiral Horatio Viscount Nelson in HMS Victory and Captain James Lawrence in USS Chesapeake.
From the bloody waters off Cape Trafalgar in 1805 and off Boston in 1813, to the treacherous coastline of colonial New South Wales, Savage Odyssey calls heavily on eye-witness accounts of history in the making, and the actual experiences of two nineteenth century female castaways.
Savage Odyssey absorbs most of John Lewis’s novel Savage Exile, previously published by Pan Macmillan. It is a tale of courage and survival; an epic adventure in which ordinary men and women are caught up in tumultuous events beyond their control. Although the magnificent tapestry of Savage Odyssey is spread across three continents, it is acclaimed as a great Australian novel, because it combines all the tyranny of Robert Hughes’ The Fatal Shore with the passion of Vivian Stuart’s The Australians.

5.0 out of 5 stars How times have changed January 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is some time since I have picked up a book but retirement does have its benefits. I had no inkling of what I was to read and was absored by the leading characters & tough treatment they and convicts endured for minor or trumped up offences.

John's book transfixes you into a time warp where the gentry ruled and the poor did their best to just survive.It is spiced with numerous sexual encounters that enhance the story line.

I thoroughly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant read! January 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book whilst on an overseas holiday which included 7 flights. I saved the book for the flights. In the end I was just as excited about the low cost carrier flights when I got to read Savage Odyssey as I was about the next destination! I read Savage Exile (Savage Odyssey starts with this book - so you get to read the whole thing in one book) some years ago and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it again. But with this book we get to discover what happens to the central characters after Savage Exile. It was an exciting read and I would thoroughly recommend it!
