Nanberry Black Brother White Free download ↠ 105 The amazing story of Australia's first surgeon and the boy he adopted Ages 12 two brothers one black one white and a colony at the end of the world It's 1789 and as the new colony in Sydney Cove is established Surgeon John White defies convention and adopts Nanberry an Aboriginal boy to raise as his son Nanberry is clever and uses his uniue gifts as an interpreter to bridge the two worlds he lives in With I had to read this book for school At first I was uite bored with the random non plot effecting events and scenes But as the book went on I eventually became used to little dialogs or memoires that were regularly thrown in The characters were good role models and had commendable ideals Jackie French s vocabulary seemed somewhat limited or restrained but her writing was good enough to keep the book at some points interesting The thing I hated was the ending view spoiler If you want to kill off the main character at least show the scene of them heroically dying Why would an author just briefly say this is my brother s grave And then suddenly 2 minutes later he is casually chatting with someone else as if nothing happened I didn t even like Nanberry that much but I think he deserved a heroic and acknowledged death hide spoiler EMS Vehicle Operator Safety Arabic you want to kill off the main character at least show the scene of them heroically dying Why would an author just briefly say this is my brother s grave And then suddenly 2 minutes later he is casually chatting with someone else as if nothing happened I didn t even like Nanberry that much but I think he deserved a heroic and acknowledged death hide spoiler

Nanberry Black Brother White Free download ↠ 105 His white brother Andrew he witnesses the struggles of the colonists to keep their precarious grip on a hostile wilderness And yet he is haunted by the memories of the Cadigal warriors who will one day come to claim him as one of their own This true story follows the brothers as they make their way in the world one as a sailor serving in the Royal Navy the other a hero of the Battle of Waterloo No less i I was never a huge fan of this book but I decided to at least give it a try I really wanted to like it as Australian and Aboriginal history is very fascinating but sadly I just couldn t get into the story I haven t read any Jackie French stories before but I had heard she was a good author Even though I didn t really like Nanberry I still think it was written well The premise of this book sounded interesting and it was but I just felt it dragged along and nothing much seemed to happen If enjoying this book a little and didn t have many other books to read than I may have continued with it But unfortunately I didn t and I am sad to say that I left this book about half way through I still believe this could have been a good book and very enjoyable if it is something that interests you
