"Bowron hits just the right note, with wry observational humor and
insight. She doesn't big-note emotionally but the pain,
bewilderment, and determination to keep on going are all there."
--Peter Wells, author, "Lucky Bastard"
"Bowron has given us an intelligent, articulate and moving record of one of the major events in our history." --Paul Little, "North and South"
"Quite simply, it is a remarkable contemporary record of a major event in this country's history." --Abbie Jury, "Waikato Times"
"An entertaining read with wry observational humor and insight of what it was like to be in Christchurch during this time." --"Tomorrow's Schools Today"
"Obligatory reading . . . Bowron was uniquely placed, not simply because she was living in the central city, but also because she had just the journalistic eye you wanted at such a time: game (setting forth on her bicycle), wry, witty, and wonderfully observant, immune to bullshit and platitudes, conveying the fullest sense of life . . . Columnist of the year at next year's media awards? [Bowron] better be." --Guy Somerset, "Listener"
