I have just finished reading an awesome book from a new Australian author, Brett Ross. ‘Young Ned’ is an absorbing tale of a turning point in a young man’s life. Disillusioned and disappointed with his life in an Australian coastal town, Ned and a couple of friends embark on an adventure through Southern California, Mexico and Central America.

On this journey Ned and his mates have some crazy experiences and hilarious encounters with a variety of fascinating characters that had me regularly laughing out loud. The humorous and detailed descriptions of the characters and escapades at home and abroad had the effect of pulling me ever deeper into the story; I was able to accompany Ned and his companions on their journey, see what they saw and feel what they felt. And I was captured by the lead character Ned’s genuine desire to live a life less ordinary…his spirit for adventure, his curiosity and his ability to open himself up to incredible possibilities through his interactions and experiences with his neighbour Ronald. If you are in the mood to be entertained by a unique, hilarious and well written book that may just inspire you then read ‘Young Ned’ without delay.
