More reviews for The Half-Child

I was thrilled to see The Half Child given a four-star review by Kath Lockett in the latest edition of The Big Issue — one of my favourite publications. I especially liked the closing line: “Funny, heart-wrenching and informative, Savage’s heroine is someone readers will want to share a beer with.”

In the Adelaide Advertiser on 11 Sept 2010, Katharine England wrote: “A thoroughly satisfying novel…Savage not only skilfully entertains her readers but also makes us think poignantly and enlighteningly about the big questions of equity and exploitation, sacrifice and the true nature of courage.”

In Notebook magazine October 2010 Geraldine O’Brien describes The Half-Child as “rich with insider knowledge”.
