  1. An interesting read especially if you grew up in Brisbane in the 70s and 80s because you will have some fun picking out the landmarks The story itself is well written but a little contrived and far fetched at times Thought provoking though

Romeo is in his thirties and a time when he is coming to term with age and reflecting on his adolescent coming of age and lost love in Brisbane His teenage 70 s and the present 90 s Brisbane setting is sprinkled with many landmarks that evoke bygone memories for local readers Cloudland, leafy New Farm and Park, the lazy Brisbane River,large Queenslanders , Fortitude Valley haunts including the ficticious underworld club are all part of a well told story of love,loyalty and friendship
