Reviews

This is completely different to anything the author has written before, and in my opinion he's nailed it. A master at his craft, Garry Disher certainly knows how to weave a tale, and Her will stay with me for a long time. A highly recommended 5 star read. - Reading, Writing and Riesling blog

At a descriptive level, as an evocation of a post-Federation world of blowflies, fencing wire and rock buns, Her is almost flawless. - The Saturday Paper

His lyrical prose paints a picture of a historical Australia both beautiful and barren, and serves up a lead character you love and support from the first time you meet her - Herald Sun

A dark and unsettling tale from the turn of the 20th century by a master of Australian literature. - Mildura Midweek

Disher has lovingly crafted You's internal dialogues, allowing moments of beauty and touching descriptions of the harsh yet majestic Australian bush to rescue the narrative from any overbearing sense of despair - Big Issue Australia

It's brilliantly told. It's also dark and disquieting. - Queenscliffe Herald

this is an accomplished, arresting, harrowing novel, replete with horrors even as it tempts us towards hope. - Weekend Australian

What is striking about the book is the rich descriptive prose Disher uses so well to tell the gruesome story of survival and endurance. - The Weekly Times
