Bridge of Clay by Markus Zusak (Book Review)

Five brothers living alone in Sydney by the racetracks. Gradually we hear the story of their parents, of how they ended up in this situation and what it means for them.

Zusak creates strong characters that tug at our heartstrings, and he structures the story to give the reader enough information that they want to keep reading. I must admit that it took be about 150 pages to get into the story, and that if I wasn’t a finisher of books, I reckon I would have given up on it. As it is, I am stubborn and persisted, and it was worth it.
