Comments The Fall

  • Carolyn

    Lisa Harnum fell to her death from a 15th floor balcony on 30th July 2011. In this carefully laid out account, Amy Dale clearly relates the events that led up to that fateful day. This is a story of a toxic relationship where extreme psychological abuse turned a vibrant, friendly young woman into a friendless recluse whose every move was watched and controlled by her boyfriend, Simon Gittany. Most Australians will remember seeing on the news the shocking images captured by the camera at the door [...]


  • Brenda

    Lisa Harnum had loved to dance as a child – living in Toronto in the United States with her brother Jason and mother Joan she had a happy childhood. She was a determined child, who grew into a determined teen; her love of dance would see her stay at the dance school long after her friends had drifted away with more to interest them. But illness would attack; her confidence would shatter – years later, leaving for Australia felt like the right thing to do. Lisa felt she needed to achieve some [...]


  • Josh

    One of the more sensationalised crimes reported in recent times, the murder of Lisa Harnum by Simon Gittany captivated arm chair juries and social media addicts throughout court proceedings. Having all the hallmarks of prime time crime; an attractive couple, never-before-seen video evidence after the fact, and the brutal and public display of the heinous crime, the trial which saw Simon Gittany sentenced to 18 + 8yrs was far from a media circus but it did provide an insight into a dark, dark pla [...]


  • Bri

    I was familiar with this case due to it being all over the media during the trial. The book was well written and thoughtful even if a little bit repetitive in some parts. I read a lot of true crime books but this one triggered me like no other has ever done. Having been in an abusive relationship before I could relate all too well to the tactics Gittany used against his girlfriend and then fiancee, Lisa Harnum. The author really captured how Gittany controlled every aspect of Lisa’s life. He k [...]


  • Lee

    This book was quite interesting. It took you through the background detail of the case and into the courtroom through the trial. It is blatantly obvious this man was controlling, arrogant and completely full of himself and Lisa never stood a chance against him. I felt very much for Lisá's mother, how hard must it be to sit there day after day listening to such distressing evidence.


  • Vanessa

    A very sad and tragic story retold well. I believe Amy Dale provided a thoughtful and factual account. She didn't hide that the victim suffered her own demons, but did bring to light the damaging effects of a controlling and domestic partner. May Lisa's mum find some peace in knowing she helped put away a murderer who could have done the same thing to another woman.


  • Kirby

    Justice Lucy McCallum was brilliant in this case.


  • Jane

    The Fall traces the trial of R v Gittany in the NSW Supreme Court during 2013 and 2014. Simon Gittany was found guilty of murdering his fiancée, Lisa Harnum on July 30 2011 and Amy Dale does an excellent job of telling Lisa Harnum's sad story and shedding light on the absolute arrogance and controlling personality of Gittany who managed to totally control every aspect of Lisa Harnum's life so that to her friends and family she became a shadow of her former vibrant self. In the end this is a sto [...]


  • Emily Webb

    Amy Dale did a great job with this book. A terribly sad story with lots of drama. I kept thinking throughout how sad it was that Lisa Harnum was so pathetically dependant on her boyfriend (and killer) Simon Gittany. I wanted her to leave and she nearly did He was so controlling and Dale has documented that well in this book.


  • Tina

    A fascinatingly, tragic story and a well told, sympathetic version of it. Unfortunately the grammar and editing were disastrous at times and I found myself having to read numerous sentences multiple times to attempt to decipher their meaning. Editors and proofreaders alike have failed grossly here I'm afraid and it detracted from the story hugely.


  • Olwen

    Interesting too, but also disturbing if you have ever been in an abusive relationship (and who wants to be reminded of THAT?) . Despite this, I think it would be useful reading for adolescent women to help them identify controlling men when they appear.


  • Andrew Crawford

    For a fascinating case I found this quiet a tedious read and found myself skipping not just pages but chapters


  • Tia

    Interesting and considerate narrative with plenty of facts. Dale was thoughtful in her writing and retold the story well.
