Summary

When Englishman Eyre Walker, newly arrived in Australia, meets the beautiful Charlotte Lindsay, romance quickly blossoms. But theirs is a relationship with fatal consequences. When a late-night tryst is interrupted by Charlotte's irate father, Walker's young Aborigine servant is brutally killed by guard dogs. A man with a conscience, Walker is anxious to atone for the boy's death by giving him a proper Aboriginal burial. And so he begins a marathon journey into the outback to search for Corroboree, the gathering of nomadic tribes for the age-old ritual.
The expedition that he mounts is sponsored by Captain Sturt, a celebrated explorer who believes a huge ocean lies in the middle of Australia. But Walker finds something else in the middle of that vast continent, and the price he must pay for surviving it will scar him for life....

Disappointing, nothing comes to life.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Less dialogue between characters, and less repetition.

Has Corroboree put you off other books in this genre?

Yes.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Corroboree?

I would have edited the dialogue and internal " soliloquies".

Any additional comments?

Good narrator for an over-ambitious dull story. Deeper and better novels about the exploration of Australia already exist.

Riveting, desperate, a brilliant story...

Another favorite to add to my list of favorites by Graham Masterton!
One man's journey, fraught with determination, danger, and mystery, based on tragic circumstances, that sees he and his companions off across the great continent of Australia to fulfill a dying man's last wish.
It's about an ancient nomadic people, that despite the best efforts of the new immigrants to exterminate them, have managed to survive the extreme hell of the desert and the outback. It speaks of the simplicity of their way of life, that binds them to an often hostile land, each other, their tribal ancestors and the Dreamtime.
A story filled with lively, haunting, unforgettable characters, and where the fictional, and the historical meets, blends and becomes legend...
