It’s hard to read when you first picked it up as there is practically no punctuation being used. However, it reflects on the ‘uneducated’ state of Ned Kelly. I had to read a sentence a few times over & actually apply the punctuation in my head to understand but you get used to it after a while. As it is written in the first person view, it is completely acceptable.
The story itself is very interesting and a lot of the themes there feels very real. The main ones being the harshness of life in Australia back then especially for those who are poor & therefore, persecuted. The corruption & hunger people have for money & power leads to many atrocities being committed. Even a little white lie will have a major consequence.
