Comments Jenseits der Untiefen

  • Phrynne

    Such a sad, sad story. The ending made me reach for the tissues. The author writes beautifully with a very evocative style. I have never been surfing but her descriptions of Miles when he is waiting for the next wave are so real I felt as though I had been there too. Harry is a wonderful little character and I was so glad when he had some happy moments. His relationship with George was lovely although I still do not really understand who George was. I think maybe he was there just as a red herri [...]

  • Canadian Reader

    Parrett's debut novel concerns the three sons of a violent, embittered Tasmanian fisherman with a dark secret. It is a spare, lyrical, almost mythic piece. The boys lost their mother some years back in a car crash which two of the boys, Miles--now 13, and Harry--8, survived. These two now live with their father in a run-down house on the rocky, harsh, and remote southern coast of Tasmania. The eldest son, Joe--19, escaped to live with his maternal grandfather some years previous, after his arm w [...]

    I was attracted to this book because of the setting, Tasmania, where my future daughter is at this time. The writing is very spare, but this is done to great effect. Three boys, trying to get over a horrible tragedy, two who are the mercy of a drunken, abusive father. The third, older had been building a boat for years and is now ready to get away.Abalone fishing is a way of life there and the scenes on the water are harrowing. There is a wonderful old neighbor named George, who offers the boys [...]

    3.5 starsMuch thanks to NetGalley, the publisher, and author for the advanced copy to reviewAs some adults later do, sometimes I wish that my parents would have done something different or I feel deprived in some way. That is, until I read books on children with abusive and bitter parents that could care less if they existed or not. Once I read them, I think, ‘you should be kissing your parents feet’ or ‘why am I such an ungrateful little runt?’This is the case with Past the Shallows. Th [...]

  • Jeannie

    I picked this up at the library yesterday and could not put it down.It is an emotional story and sad. At one point I noticed I was holding my breath while I was reading. I felt myself getting attached to the characters and wanted to be there for them. I ended up crying at the end. This book will stay with me for awhile. Beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time.

  • Ben Langdon

    My favourite book of 2011, and after re-reading it this year it still holds up as one of my all-time favourite reads.From the first page, Favel Parrett sets up a tragedy that cannot be out-run or ignored. There is a keen sense of something terrible just around the corner for the three brothers of this book.Parrett captures the 1980s feel of Australia, from the show bags to the sense of everyday. There is also a very real sense of 'cold' which comes from the book being set in the inhospitable sou [...]

  • Brenda

    This debut novel by Favel Parrett has a lot of high recommendations attached to it, and it’s one I’ve wanted to read for awhile. I am so glad I did, it was a wonderful story, very sad, very confronting, but definitely worth reading.Harry, Miles and Joe are 3 children who lost their mother to a dreadful car accident a few years earlier, and the two younger boys have since lived with their moody and unpredictable father on the remote south coast of Tasmania. Joe moved out at 13 after a bitter [...]

  • ☮Karen

    Maybe 3.5 stars. The book's style was one I didn't care much for. Great story -- very sad and unique in setting -- but the slow way it was revealed to the reader just never grabbed me. With all the 5 star ratings, I am wondering what I missed.

  • Michael

    This is the debut novel by Victorian author Favel Parrett and I found it to be a haunting and emotive read. It is the sought of story that once you get started it is nigh on impossible to stop, with a clear and simple writing style with the story narrated by two young brothers. I found myself instantly relating to the boys and rode a wave of emotions.Eight-year-old Harry lives with his older brother Miles and their abusive Abalone fisherman father in Southern Tasmania. With his eldest brother Jo [...]

  • Meagan

    I really wish I could give this book ten stars! Favel Parrett's debut novel is an exquisitely tender workwritten with immense sensitivity and a beautiful turn of phrase. The story is about three brothers Joe, Miles and Harry, who live in Tasmania with their often drunk and very bitter father, who is a fisherman. Set in 1983, the story is alternately narrated by fifteen year old Miles, and his much younger little brother,Harry. Miles' voice has a cynicism and weariness, young Harry's voice is qui [...]

  • Greg Barron

    From the first page I knew that Past the Shallows was something special. This is a writer that knows that clear and elegant writing does not require pyrotechnics. The story is moving and beautifully told. Past the Shallows deserves its place on the Miles Franklin short list and deserves to go all the way.

  • Mish

    This is a heartbreaking story of two young brothers, Miles and Harry who live alone with their widowed father in a run down cottage on the coast of Tasmania.Their father is an abalone fisherman who drinks excessively, has a violent temper, and often physically abuses his sons. There is hardly any food but boys do the best they can with what they have with some help from people nearby. Harry, the youngest of three brothers is left alone during the day while the middle brother Miles and his dad ar [...]

  • Michael

    Favel Parrett’s debut novel is at times gut wrenching and shocking but I never went away from this book feeling like I had just read something interesting. It all felt way too familiar and that left me wanting to read something new and maybe unpredictable. I adored the writing style in Past the Shallows, it was almost poetic and it just pushed me through this book with such ease; even in the parts of the book I wasn’t enjoying. Full review here; literary-exploration/2012/My live tweeting of [...]

    The term "Wintonesque" was woven more than once through the reviews at the front of this first published novel by Aussie female writer Favel Parrett. It's not just the parallels in writing style and content - the surf, the beautiful, redemptive surf - but it's also in the narrator's eye. There's a kindly benevolence in both writers, a certain compassion. There's a childlikeness about compassion. But in an age of stiff egos and parasitic capitalism anything childlike can easily be mistaken for we [...]

  • Lisa

    I loved it even more the second time!I must admit, I am a huge fan of Australia. I love the literature, the films and the television series. It's so relatable to me - the sounds, the smells. Somehow these books just capture beauty, purity and innocence to me.Past the Shallows hurt my heart and soul, but in such a painfully beautiful way. I absolutely loved it.

  • Tracey Allen at Carpe Librum

    I know I'm a bit late to the party, but I've just read Past The Shallows by award winning Australian author Favel Parrett. Set in a small town on the coast of Tasmania, Harry and Miles live with their father; an abalone fisherman bitter and angry after the loss of his wife. Harry and Miles are largely left to fend for themselves and try their best to stay out of their father's way.Miles and their older brother Joe enjoy surfing and feel at one with the sea, while Harry - the youngest - is afraid [...]

  • Jenny

    Past the Shallows is the first book by Favel Parrett, I have read. I did enjoy reading Past the Shallows. However, it is a sad story about three young boys Harry, Miles and Joe who was mistreated by their single father after their mother died in a car accident. At times during reading Past the Shallows, I needed to find tissues particularly in the conclusion of the story. The readers of Past the Shallows will learn about neglect and cruelty and the unique bond that these three young boys have. I [...]

    Favel Parrett is an Australian author. With this piece of information you may develop a certain expectation for this book particularly if you have read any books written by Markus Zusak or Craig Silvey. I just have this need to let everyone know that Favel Parrett writes very differently from these authors at least on one point. That is, her prose is very very simple, to an extent that the authors mentioned above appear chatty in comparison (when they are near-perfect if you ask me). I don't wan [...]

  • Kelv

    This book had a Tim Winton feel all over it i.e surf theme, hard up Australians, and lots of realistic emotions. The book had a good flow and was generally interesting - there were times where I had to re-read due some sluggishness. Characters were all over the place; I was not sure of who the brothers were and what their ages were until the end. Also, there were some throw away characters which felt out of place, for example, George seemed to be apart of the Mothers death, but he had nothing to [...]

  • Carol -Reading Writing and Riesling

    My View:The combination of Favell Parrett’s words and David Wenham’s narration equals a beautiful experience for the soul and the ears! I have listened to a few audio books but this one beats them all – the narrative is poignantly read, is often heartbreaking, honest and brutal and real. The ending – is not pretty – but pays homage to the bonds of siblings forged strong and unbreakable by the explosive temperament of a bitter and twisted father. A mystery is slowly revealed. As a past [...]

  • Denise

    Sometimes cold and bleak, sometimes lyrical and uplifting, this tale of three young brothers is an impressive debut novel. Favel Parrett's imagery of the Tasmanian coastline is exquisite.

  • Dhitri

    This book is a gem. It is raw, confronting, yet at the same time riveting and incredibly moving. At the heart of the story you have three brothers, who love in the rugged southern coast of Tasmania. They are subjected to the moods of their father, an abalone fisherman, who is a bitter and abusive man, especially to Harry, the youngest of the three. Joe, the eldest, emancipated himself after a violent encounter with their father, whereas Miles is trapped between his filial duties to help with the [...]

  • Jillwilson

    I started this novel because I’ve just been to Tasmania where it’s set but was immediately filled with a sense of bleakness and found it hard to come to the novel willingly. You know, from the very first pages, that what the characters face is grim and that there may be no redemption or hope. And I won’t spoil the plot to say more about this. What I want to stress about the novel is how good it is.It’s a debut novel, it’s slight in length and sparingly told. It reminded me of the outse [...]

  • Jennifer (JC-S)

    ‘Cuttlefish were easy but shark eggs were impossible’.From the novel’s opening: ‘Out past the shallows, past the sandy-bottomed bays, comes the dark water – black and cold and roaring.’ this was a novel that held my attention to the end. Set in coastal southern Tasmania, it is a story about extremes – both in nature and within people.There are three brothers: Joe, Miles and Harry. Miles and Harry live with their father while Joe lives with their grandfather. Their mother is dead an [...]

    Oh, how I loved this book. I saved it for a three hour plane triphoping that once we lifted up into the skies, that I would be lost in the pages. And that's precisely what happened. I inhaled the pages, I couldn't turn them fast enough. Favel Parret's writing style is much like Tim Winton and Cormac McCarthy. Few words speak volumes. Wonderful words that create a novel of poetic paragraphs. Three boys growing up in the shadow of their drinking, depressed father. Winter along the southern coast o [...]

  • Amanda

    It’s funny how some authors often go unnoticed in the sea of fiction these days, especially when you have a focus on a particular area, like Aussie YA. In mid-August, before my dad handed me Past the Shallows, I’d never heard of Favel Parrett, and then suddenly her name was everywhere I looked because her second novel was due to be released. I’m so glad he found a copy of her debut novel because it’s an amazing example of Aussie YA fiction.Past the Shallows is the story of the Curran boy [...]

  • Jodie

    Touching and haunting is this story set in the wilds of Tasmania. The chilling water that pushes up from the Antarctic into enormous swells slamming against the coast and at times the swell is so big it changes the shape of the coast with a single event. Much like the lives of Harry, Miles and Joe, three brothers from a broken home in the true definition of the word. Completely shattered by the loss of their mother in a car crash. We are never actually told the age of Harry but I guess that he i [...]

  • Maree Kimberley

    Past the Shallows is a beautifully written, gripping and emotinally charged book. I read it within 2 days but a few times had to put it down so I could breathe because of its intensity.The language is deceptively simple. Each sentence is pitched to hold just the right amount of tension. There is a stillness about this book that draws you in and binds you to it. Each character feels real, as though they're people you've seen or have known. When any of them are lost, you feel the hurt.This is the [...]

  • CaroB

    What a powerful story. For all it's relatively short length, this story about two young boys after a devastating family tragedy, packs a bleak and angsty punch. Extremely well written, I appreciated the way the back-story was revealed through memories, and found the prose poignant yet succinct. Unlike Tim Winton, who tends to leave me unimpressed, Ms Parrett's writing was beautiful, her descriptions eloquent and thought-provoking. The water was as much a character in this book as the people. One [...]
