    I honestly don't understand why this has been languishing on my bookshelf for such a long time. Perhaps because I thought it was going to be a slightly different kind of book? Whatever the reason, I'm so glad I've now read it, and been able to add it straight to my Favorites shelf.

    Nine Days is the third novel by Australian author Toni Jordan and was inspired by a photograph from the State Library of Victoria’s Argus newspaper collection of war photographs. Starting in pre-war suburban Melbourne, it tells the story of the working-class Westaway family over the following seventy

    I found it very hard to rate this book out of five stars, and ended up coming down somewhere between three and four stars, probably edging closer to four than three, so four it is. As a w

    Nine Days by Toni Jordan

    It is 1939 in Richmond, a working class suburb of Melbourne, Australia.
    Men and boys are enlisting to go to war and the general mood is restlessness in this neighborhood where everybody knows each others' business and a certain class distinction is tacitly determined by how far

    I particularly like the structure of this novel, though at first it challenged my concentration due to its non-linear, multiple perspective approach. Nine days = nine chapters, each chapter voiced by a different person. What might sound confusing actually works in an elegant way, which I think is testament to th

    ‘Nine Days’ is a departure from romantic comedy for Toni Jordan, whose two previous novels ‘Addition’ and ‘Fall Girl’, I both read and loved. ‘Nine Days’ was inspired by the photograph on the cover, which was taken during World War Two, and shows a young woman farewelling a soldier on a train station.

    Alec,you must know this. People disappear. They just go puff.Thin air. Every time you see someone, you never know if you're seeing them for the last time. Drink them in, Alec. Kiss them. It's very important. Never let anyone say good bye, even for a little while, without kissing them. Quite a way into this book, which I must admit was a slow

    A surprising book, an appealing story, and an introduction to an author I will be reading again. I loved the central device: nine characters each describing (in first person) a pivotal day, a day that completely changed their lives. The days are not presented in order, and that makes it a bit of a puzzle: I like the way each chapter (day) is named fo

    I was delighted to discover this new book from Toni Jordan because it’s a departure from her two previous romantic comedies, signalling that Jordan is an author who’s interested in experimenting with different styles of writing. I enjoyed both the Miles Franklin shortlisted Addition and Fall Girl (see my review) but Nine Days is historical fiction with c

    I loved this book. Jordan has such a talent for writing a book that is easy to read - I read this in just a few days - but one that is still intellectually stimulating and that contains some beautiful writing. When I began reading, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it - the book is told from the perspectives of nine different people and I had trouble engaging wit
