This piece, told in the first person, grabs you and won't let go. You feel the dusty setting through Shane's dulled senses, but with a vivid realism. John Holland immerses you into the outback town of Iris like a Normal Rockwell painting gone awry... At least through most of the story.
I was caught up, lived in Shane's shoes, and, like him, couldn't predict what was next. I couldn't set it down without abandoning a friend in need. I took a little bit of him with me as I hurried through my chores to continue reading this haunting novella. It had a satisfying final scene, but still left me in a tattered T-shirt and dusty khaki shorts.
When a young woman tentatively sat next to him after a meal stop, he withdrew into himself further – he didn’t want conversation; he was certainly not worth talking to; but she was friendly enough. When it turned out she was also going to Iris, his thoughts were then on making sure he avoided her.
As he gradually settled into the town, he found his days were a confusion of lightness and dark. But when evil in the form of a brutal man appeared, things were bound to change. But what would happen to Shane? Would he discover the reason he had returned to Iris?
This novella by Aussie author John Holland was thoroughly enjoyable. The protagonist was a likeable young man who was struggling; he had of course long since come to terms with the depression that dogged his days. Combining mystery and suspense, the pace was fast – it was a quick, easy read. I have no hesitation in recommending Somewhere Far From Iris.
With low esteem he is thinking of himself that he is ugly, useless and messed up. But here in Iris he finally found what he is looking for, but not before something else is happening.
Yes, he, he thinks he is ugly and useless and no one would ever love him, found love.
Very well written, from the first page I was captivated.
