At Buenaventura, we spent our time either hiking through the lush forest or watching birdlife from the porch. The ground-dwelling Jocotoco Antipitta was thought to be extinct, and its discovery launched the Jocotoco Foundation and its series of reserves around Ecuador. I can't really think of any other way to describe this. I think 3 stars is about right because this is not the great Australian novel and yet I like William McInnes because he has a nice way of describing things without becoming overblown.
This is a very easy read with likable characters and it doesn't take too long to get to the point. The male main character is an awkward fellow in thoroughly endearing way while t What a lovely little story although I am not sure how to rate it.
The male main character is an awkward fellow in thoroughly endearing way while the female main character is somewhat the same but for entirely different reasons. I think the thing I liked about this the most was that although both main characters were damaged in some way, the story did not suffer for it and didn't get bogged down in pages and pages of overly descriptive or dramatic text about their traumatic pasts. This kind of reminds me of a sketch drawing, sparse and few lines but a complete and satisfying picture in the end.
I think Mr McInnes is getting better with each book and I look forward to his next effort. Bugger it.
I'm giving it 4. There is beauty in simplicity most of the time. Sep 06, Kate rated it it was amazing Shelves: kate. Absolutely gorgeous reading! I was always under the impression that he wrote "blokey" books - couldn't be more wrong. I'll be looking for more of his Jan 24, Clio rated it really liked it Shelves: A sweet and touching story of love, birdwatching and family. Everything works out for everyone, and some small precious moments were had by all. Beautiful and Australian, a perfect combination. Oct 17, Deb Beath added it Shelves: not-finished. A bookclub book that I just couldn't get into.
Read the first chapter and then gave up. Dec 26, Emma Bothwell rated it it was ok. I was excited to read something by an Australian author, having just moved to Queensland myself. McInnes writes a nice story, though I found myself wanting more depth - or more grit? I almost found that I gained as much about some of the people in this story from reading the back of the book as I did from reading the book itself. That being said, perhaps McInnes intentionally left some of the character details out in order to be more open to interpretation.
Great for Bird Watching - Review of Fort Washington State Park, Fort Washington, PA - TripAdvisor
I might not h I was excited to read something by an Australian author, having just moved to Queensland myself. I might not have identified as much with the protagonist had she been presented in more detail However, being the parter of a huge bird nerd I instantly appreciated the jet-setting, field-guide-carrying mannerisms that accompany birders both in this story and in real life. Thanks for a good read! Jul 31, Lesley rated it really liked it. Although his acting is far superior to his writing. And I did. I have turned up to remote places where rarities have been sighted to find a large group of similarly dressed people with binoculars and cameras with huge lenses.
I know people who fly to other side of Australia at the drop of a hat after word of a special bird sighting. There are some inconsistencies. Queensland does not sell alcohol at grocery stores.

Cairns is not a suitable climate for a citrus orchard. And worse, Bush Stone-curlews are not related to Curlews. May 25, Robert rated it really liked it. Someone gave me this book. I was wary - birdwatching? You must be kidding, but this is a quirky, quietly funny romance in slow motion. Not my thing at all, but I enjoyed every minute. Jan 14, Sharon Metcalf rated it liked it Shelves: I specifically bought this book because William McInnes is a columnist I've enjoyed reading over the years. That doesn't always mean they'll write a good book but in this case I wasnt disappointed. Having said that, the book has been sitting unread on my shelves for ages because I just have so many other good books competing for my time.
As it turns out a BT Bingo challenge got this one across the line.

The whole book covers only a few days of a trip to north Queensland for the main characters, who are all there for different reasons, mostly bird watching or in the wake of a death in the family, but their lives converge, and that's where it gets interesting Meant to encourage being in the moment, I think it achieved that I the end, though I was not sure for most of the book Jul 20, SWC rated it it was amazing.
I found this to be an endearing story.
At the start I was confused as to why there appeared to be two unrelated story lines. Once those paths crossed, though, the result was predictable. However, that did not make the story any less readable. I was fascinated with the variety and detail which described various birds. The underlying story was about the sighting of a very rare bird.
