Review: Voss

User Review  - Lesley - Goodreads

I read this book as a teenager and again recently as an adult. It's an extraordinary work, dark and hallucinatory and strange, the terrible story of Voss and his little group of explorers who venture ... Read full review

User Review  - Christian Schwoerke - Goodreads

I had no doubt when I was reading this novel that I was in the presence of an artist. Certainly the simpler aspects of the novel were there: story, characters, dimension, proportion, theme, etc., but ... Read full review

User Review  - Phil Lines - Goodreads

Coming across him in 2013, I knew little about Patrick White. I didn't believe he was a contemporary writer and when I began to read Voss I thought he might almost be a Victorian novelist. He isn't of ... Read full review

User Review  - Sean de la Rosa - Goodreads

White's Voss is not as forceful or vicious as Riders in the Chariot. White has a great talent of picking his characters apart page by page.
