    I loved both these books ‘We of the Never Never’ was probably not uite as engaging as ‘The Little Black Princess’ but I loved the journey it took me on into life in the outback Having lived in Darwin I felt immersed in the country that I had only seen in passing in the territory I loved everything I learnt about indigenous culture in both books but it was particularly rich in ‘The Little Black Princess’ I flinched at some of the language used that is so unacceptable in society today but as it wasn’t used in a derogatory manner it didn’t detract from the beautiful journey these books took me on

    I can see why this is a classic in Australian literature Thank goodness I had a friend who lived in Australia for a few years and sent this to me What an amazing and true story It does help to read the background of the story first because Mrs Gunn just jumps right into relating her experiences in the Australian bush in the early 1900s She doesn't really explain why she was there or give any background It didn't take me long to adjust and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing I was amazed by how someone over 100 years ago was so accepting of and interested in another culture

    So these are two separate stories and I'm really happy I didn't stop at the first one because 'We of the Never Never' was uite boring Nothing much happened It's one of those stories that is only fun if you were actually there Like Cheon the Chinese fellow Mrs Gunn mentions to be very important beyond his basic function as a cook and gardener but barely elaborates so you don't get to know this person that for some reason unknown meant so much to her and the entire settlementThat first book would only be 2 stars for meThe little black princess on the other hand was 4 stars and thus I arrive at 3 stars overallThe story of the this little aboriginal girl and her people interacting with the settlement was very interesting and what I hoped the whole novel would be like You learn so much about their culture and beliefs and it's just funny and heartwarming at times I really struggled with the first story but adored the second oneOverall forcing myself through the first story has paid off in getting to experience the second story so I might recommend just skipping straight to 'the little black princess' Bett Bett

    although we get used to certain styles of writing and then read with a kind of expectancy sometimesother styles of writing can be enjoyable as well we of the never never is written in an oddly simple manner no flowerey prose no waxing poetic just a simple story sometimes this book was a little hard to read because it does use language that you have to think about aussie slang circa 1900 northern territory bushman style i would be interested to see the movie adaptation of the storyand towards the end is a real celebration of thankfullness for the blessings the maluka and his missus have been givenit is nice to be reminded how lucky we are and how simple life can be if you let iti wouldn't recommend the book to read unless you were really super keen on aussie history or a fan of mrs anneas gunn or something the little black princess was a lovely short story easy to read and finish in a sitting i like it

    Another book for the Read Around the World Scheme run by the library service I am enjoying this century old book and the incongruence between racial attitudes then and now The author seems to have been a most unusual woman for her time She explains life on the cattle stations of the Northern Territories of Australia which she experienced as a newly wed amusingly and with very effective descriptions Lovely stories of life in a different place and different time written effectively and affectionately Very enjoyable

    I found this book so incredibly hard to push through In the end I only did it for Book Club The second story was much easier to readI selected this for a Reading Challenge as a book based on a true story
