Metal Fish, Falling Snow

Hey guys, it’s been a long time since I made another blog post but here I am! Today I’m going to review a book called Metal Fish, Falling Snow. It’s an Australian-based book by Cath Moore. It’s about a girl named Dylan whose mother just recently died and she is left in the care of the mum’s boyfriend Pat. Both of them go on a journey together through outback Australia to meet her other family. Through this journey, she rediscovers her identity and her complicated relationship with Pat.

WARNING: SPOILERS UP AHEAD! (IF YOU’VE READ IT, GREAT! BUT IF NOT THEN DON’T SCROLL UP OR IF YOU JUST WANT TO SPOIL IT FOR YOURSELF THEN GO AHEAD) 

My (mini) book review:

  • I think this is one of the only two books I’ve read that’s solely based in Australia but I still loved it.
  • It was really interesting to see Dylan’s perspective and how she sees the world through her eyes even though it gets her in trouble most of the time.
  • I can see that she really loves her mother and misses her a lot through flashbacks of her time together with her mom.
  • It was intriguing to see the contrast between how Dylan and Pat see things and Pat often thinks her way of seeing things is unique. 
  • I really liked the character of Marge and I wished we could’ve seen her more with Dylan and her mum. 
  • Pat definitely had a rough past with his father which Dylan tries to investigate and find more about which I really liked and it shows that she really cares about him and wants to make things right. 
  • I like the transition between Dylan and the little kid from strangers to close friends as they have a secret language of their own and their own little routine that they built in the middle of the story. 

Overall this was a great book and it had an interesting depth to it as well.
