Eucalyptus is a fairy tale and contains all the elements you would expect in a fairy tale recast in a rural Australian setting there s mythical beauty a princess trapped in her castle suitors from distant lands and an enchanted forest Whether it s the Australian setting or Bail s cleverly created characters the story comes across as wholly believable which in itself is magical Each chapter is named after a species of eucalypt and includes a string of short intricate and seemingly inconseuential stories which link to varying degrees to the name characteristics or habitat of particular eucalypt species The stories are told from the point of view of different characters achieved most successfully through the character known only as the stranger His stories begin with enticing opening lines such as Off the coast of Victoria was a wife of a lighthouse keeper who became addicted to kite flying How can you not keep reading when presented with that Any book that truly finishes on the very last page in a way that is so unexpected so surprising and so intensely satisfying wins me I did not see where the story was heading until the last page and I closed the book smiling and amazed at the cleverness of the conclusionSee my full review here
