    1. It was weird that there was another major earthquake in Christchurch today, less than 24 hours after I finished this book I imagined that it was history, an account of a certain time that had passed But it hadn t I loved this book not only because of the accounts of Christchurch, and its fault, and all that has been ruined, but because of the wonderful attention to detail the noticing of little things Fiona s got a great way of telling her life, fast forwarding through it with wit and poignancy, [...]


    2. I absolutely loved this book It felt like spending time with an old friend Her prose feels like having a conversation, welcoming I wish I could actually have gone on these walks, and had these rambling conversations with her in person This isn t a book about walking, or the Christchurch earthquakes It s a book about life day to day thoughts, experiences, and memories It s a fabulous read full of beautiful stories.


    3. This is the second book of Fiona Farrell s I have read and the second that I have found wonderful, interesting, informative and lyrical.She evokes pictures of amazing simplicity and beauty, brings simple memories back to mind, like the love young children have for walking on walls, and she describes times and places beautifully.The Broken Book, began life as a travel book, a book of walking, beginning its six sections with a preamble But events, and earthquakes, overtook the progress so that the [...]


    4. The Walk in the Botanic Gardens is stunning I also found a lot of helpful sentiment and memoir in the Earthquake recount it s great to hear, feel and understand the similitude of shared experiences and recollect what an immensity we have been through and are still going through how easy to forget those worse off than ourselves in these days of slow traffic and slow payouts how we might remember that so many in Haiti are still without housing, food and hope still it isn t exclusive to these post [...]


    5. Simply brilliant I wanted to read this having experienced the earthquakes myself, but this was about so much I have really loved all the books I ve read by Fiona Farrell I think she must be one of my all time favourite authors Much too deep and complex to give a synopsis, but it was like being privileged to read somebody s completely unselfconscious journal I will read this again.


    6. Some great phrases poems, and really interesting to read, coming from someone who has experienced the Chch earthquake as I have.


    7. A rambling book about rambling Disjointed, brokens The poems and NZ sections were best Interesting to read a writer s take on the quakes in Chch.
