    I picked this book up for 2 reasons 1 it promised me an epistolary format.2 I was curious what Australia was like 100 years before Bill Bryson visited and wrote about his journey in the book In a Sunburned Country.As to the letter format, it leaves me quite wanting The book is based on a series of letters by the author to parties unknown Worst of all, they were reassembled into a book WITHOUT the knowledge of the author although he was quite happily living in New Zealand at the time Althou I picked this book up for 2 reasons 1 it promised me an epistolary format.2 I was curious what Australia was like 100 years before Bill Bryson visited and wrote about his journey in the book In a Sunburned Country.As to the letter format, it leaves me quite wanting The book is based on a series of letters by the author to parties unknown Worst of all, they were reassembled into a book WITHOUT the knowledge of the author although he was quite happily living in New Zealand at the time Although the book can be quite interesting at times who knew what an impressive metropolis Melbourne was then , there are aspects to it that are very dry For example, there s an ENTIRE CHAPTER on furniture Another one on food, which really is all nearly exclusively about booze The people in these letters are described almost like wildlife like animals with specific modes and patterns of behaviour and do not deviate from these at all apparently One maid is just like another in her manner of dress, disposition, behaviour and her very being for example He never ever seems to have a conversation with anyone either It is very strange.Overall it s good for Australian Historians but boring as heck for a layperson Skip it

    An amusing commentry of early colonial life Conversational andthan a bit silly in places A kind of early Lonely Planet Each chapter was a letter on a subject social relations, servants, Sydney, etc Mutterings about the colonies, the Irish, children a product of it s time with a reasonably enlightened author An enjoyable fun read and a useful documentry resource.
