With the recent passing of Colleen McCullough and seeing her novel Tim on the Kindle Daily Deals I thought it was time I read one of her books Most people have heard of The Thorn Birds however up until now I haven t read any of her booksWhen I started reading Tim I noticed my edition had been published in 2000 so I was expecting a reasonably recent setting What I didn t realise was this novel had been originally published in 1974 so the language used was not what I was expecting I should have guessed with the novel starting out with two women emptying their chamber pots not a present day occurrence in SydneyAt the time Colleen was writing this I was a young boy in mid primary school I had forgotten that the values and beliefs of the day were different to what they are now For example I found the constant use of the word retard disturbing the addressing of adults as Mr Miss or Mrs strange women in their forties having grey hair and being considered old not making sense I realise that women in their forties still have grey hair they just cover it up better these days and the ockerisms just didn t sit right with me But then I realised the setting was in the early seventies and that the character Mary Horton would be three years older than my mother was at the time As such I was able to feel comfortable with the setting and the style of writingThe main story is about the love that develops between Mary a 43 year old spinster and Tim a young man with the body of a Greek god but the I of a child There are other love stories within the book the love of Tim s parents for each other the friendship of Mary and her employer and the caring nature of Mary s neighbourOn the surface Mary seemed to be the one constantly giving of herself with Tim taking from her however without Tim Mary would not have grown and flourished from her grey world to a world of colour Mary had to overcome the prejudices of the time but when I think of it they are still the prejudices of today The only thing that has changed is the need to marry to maintain respectability The age difference and the perception of taking advantage of a disabled person remainsIt is a story of the innocence and vulnerability of Tim and the pure intentions of others clashing with prejudice and their natural instincts however buried they may have been The intentions were not always the right ones but they were always intended in the best interest of Tim I found jealousy to be an emotion that was explored in several places the jealousy of Tim s sister of the attention given to Tim and Tim s jealousy of the attention Mary gave to his fatherColleen McCullough had me hooked right from the first page I can t remember the last time I finished an average sized novel in a matter of hours but I did it with this one I finished the book infused with a feeling of warmth and love I have a fair bit of the cynic in me and tend to erect barriers between myself and the outside world but this book left me feeling good A lot like that warm blanket you pull up around your ears on a cool crisp morningI feel sad that we have lost Colleen and are deprived of of her words and stories Where do all those unwritten stories go the ones that were floating around in her imagination Such a lossWe should be grateful however that we have the ones we do and they will live on in her memory I will be reading of her books

Well I have read and loved many of this author s books but this one did not really work for me Much of the story is naive and unbelievable and the characters are stereotypes I enjoyed it in parts but skimmed a lot of the long paragraphs where people explained their actions and their inner feelings The ending is extremely odd and the last few pages totally unnecessary Sorry to all the people who love it it was obviously just not my cup of tea I understand it was her first book but how she got from this to the Masters of Rome I cannot imagine
