5.0 out of 5 stars what more can i say?, September 5, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Praise (Paperback)
Praise is about being young in Australia. About living in a world where drugs and alcohol dominate, where sex scalds and soothes, where Social Security is easier to get than a job. Where survival means taking nothing and no one too seriously. This does not mean that it stereotypes all Australians as yobs who have nothing better to do. For all those people who disagree, don't read it. Praise is not about all Australians but one, Gordon. A 23 year old average guy who doesn't really care much about a great deal. Everything he does he doesn't let get to him, that includes his job, his friends, his life. Gordon tells his story of living in New Farm in an old man's complex, sometimes with his friend Cynthia, sometimes with his girlfriend Cynthia. He can't differentiate between the two. He tells us his love of Brisbane. He speaks to us about growing up. He tells us about his whole new world. About the sex, about the drugs, about the eczema. Really it is like following the life of a typical aussie bloke. This does not make him or any other Australian's lower class, this book is excellent well worth reading for people who have an open mind and half a brain.
