    One thought on “The Sundowners”

    1. This is probably Cleary's most famous novel and unlike most of his work it is neither a thriller, nor a detective mystery. It is also his most personal as Paddy & Ida are modelled on his parents. Cleary's father was a wanderer before Jon was born and he told the young boy stories about his time as a drifter. At a time when Cleary was a long way from Australia, and probably a little homesick, he penned this novel. Even when Cleary wrote this novel (1951), the people and style of living was al [...]

    2. A good read. On the road. Droving, bushfires, shearing, country horse races. Drinking, growing up, the birth of a child. An old view of Australia. Paddy was a total dick when it came to wife and child but he did not see it and they endured stoically.

    3. Wow, it's not for nothing that this is an Australian classic. It's wonderful. Great sense of place, beautiful writing, and memorable characters. Plus it's funny and tragic and unexpected. I loved it.

    4. At first, the depiction of the Australian outback & its population during this era held my attention, as it's not a topic I've read about before -- and the characters are unique. But after 100 or so pages, I put the book down and just didn't care enough to pick it up again.

    5. RE: _The Sundowners_I see via TCM-TV that this book has been adapted to film:"The Sundowners" (1960)moviesflix/Movie/The_SI like the cast (Deborah Kerr, Robert Mitchum, Peter Ustinov). So I may order the film from Netflix.Deborah Kerr speaks with an Australian accent in this film. Unusual.(There are some cute little sheep too.) :)Jon Cleary is another author to tap for possible reading choices.

    6. I like the message of this book that home is with your family- wherever they are. But I didn't love some of the choices the Dad made that let them to figuring that out. It was only ok in my opinion.

    7. great story of Australian spirit. You can not help but be enthused and heartbroken for Ida and Sean, as they live through the ups and downs with the Patriarch of Carmody family, Paddy, and their true friend Venneker

    8. This was a gorgeous book! Quintessentially Australian, beautiful characters, great story telling and thoroughly entertaining.
