 ‘The Hypnotist’ by Lars Kepler

I hate to say it but..........if you loved Stieg Larsson, you’ll love this book. It has been hard to find anything that stands up to that brilliant trilogy, but this exciting novel can stand perfectly well on its own merits! The hypnotist of the story is Erik Maria Bark, retired and unwilling to be a part of this therapy any longer due to a disturbing experience 10 years earlier, he is persuaded to help a boy, a sole survivor and witness to the slaughter of his family and the disturbing carnage left behind. What he hears and knows, then places his family in danger. There is no tiptoeing through this book, it has extreme violence and nerve-racking scenes, it is fast paced with no time to relax – you really may need a change of underwear. A brilliant new fashioned psychological thriller.

Book Suggestion

 All That I Am by Anna Funder

Review by Jodie Humphreys

The much anticipated first novel from Anna Funder, author of critically acclaimed and awarded Stasiland (non-fiction genre), is worthy of all the accolades it has received. Based on true events and historical figures, it is a beautifully written and inspiring story about Anti-Hitler Activists who escape to London from Germany in 1933. It is an exploration of heroism, sacrifice, and betrayal, and the immense bravery and courage of individuals, forgotten by history, who refused to turn a blind eye. 

 “Imagining the life of another is an act of compassion as holy as any…once you have imagined such suffering, how can you still do nothing?”

All That I Am is the story of people who refused to do nothing. Who stood up for the plight of others and their beliefs at all costs, while the rest of the world turned the other way. A story that is extraordinary, but probably more common than we think and still quite relevant in today’s world. This is a brilliant book and the best I've read in some time.

Location - Toowoomba

Toowoomba has all the benefits of urban living without any of the big-city 'hassles'. Enjoy the best of both worlds, with a relaxed lifestyle and family-friendly atmosphere, as well as easy access to the bright lights of Brisbane and the Gold and Sunshine Coasts.

Toowoomba also has a rich heritage and culture, and features an eclectic mix of casual and metropolitan style cafés, with superb award-winning fine dining.

Excellent shopping facilities, local boutique wineries, and antique outlets throughout the city provide the creature comforts of urban life with the charm of a regional city. This is why Toowoomba is a great choice for people wanting to escape the pressures of big city life!

Toowoomba truly has something to offer everyone. So take your time to look around and you'll soon find out that there's more to this 'Garden City' than meets the eye...
