Ultimately I believe that much of what we read or see has a grain of wisdom in it and it would serve us well to find it, and if this book inspires people to look into the conditions of Aboriginal Australians or think about their own connection with the world around them it's worth the read. This is simply the worst book I have ever read. It is not only fake, but also unrealistic and incoherent from the first to the last page, you do not need to be Australian I am not to understand that.
I did a huge effort to finish just to see how further bad it could get.
Marlo Morgan's Mutant Message
In this New York Times bestseller, Morgan leads readers on the spiritual odyssey of an American woman in the Australian outback. Is it a memoir or a work of fiction?
It is up to you to decide. While I was reading the book I really enjoyed it. There was adventure, there was humor, there was reflection and evaluation of one's past, present and future.
It was a fun read and a lot of the lessons the protagonist learned along the way resonated with me, such as appreciating the experiences and not things, knowing that if you've helped one person you did well because you can only help one person at a time anyway, having faith in oneself, appreciating and developing one's talents, not taking more from nature than you need and always making sure you don't take everything. The book was written in a compelling way, it was fun and at the same time thought-provoking, and I breezed right through it even though I acknowledge that this is not one of the more skillfully-done book I've read so far.
And then I finished reading, sat back as I usually do, and thought about it longer than usual because something was nagging at me. It took me a little while to figure out that I was having trouble with the fact that some of the events didn't really fit in with the whole, some of the actions of the aborigines went against the characterizations the author gave the tribe earlier in the narrative, and even the timeline was often flexible at best.
So I decided to look up what the internet had to say about Marlo Morgan and her book.
About This Item
A brief search later I learned that when this book was originally published in it was promoted as nonfiction and in the foreword the author says that the story the reader is about to discover is a true account of what happened to her in Australia. Years later however the book was republished as fiction and there are a few websites that post a wide variety of information intended to prove that the account is in fact fictitious.
I have read the articles protesting it, as well as the account of the statement Ms. Long reads. Lib Dems. US Politics. Theresa May. Jeremy Corbyn.
