A young Aboriginal girl, Mathinna, is adopted by the most celebrated explorer of the age, Sir John Franklin, and his wife, Lady Jane, to show that the savage can be civilized. When Sir John disappears while looking for the fabled Northwest Passage, Lady Jane turns to the great novelist Charles Dickens for help.
Inspired by historical events, Wanting is a haunting meditation about love, loss, and the way life is finally determined never by reason, but only ever by wanting.

Had to bail
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
listeners from Aiustralia and/or Tasmania
What could Richard Flanagan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
The Charles Dickens part was disjointed and didn't blend in soon enough with the story to make it worthwhile continuing
What about Humphrey Bower’s performance did you like?
He is an excellent narrator
Any additional comments?
This wasn't worth it for me
