  • Four Fires

    Story
    (861)

    The four fires in this story are passion, religion, warfare, and fire itself. While there are many more fires that drive the human spirit, love being perhaps the brightest flame of all, it is these four that have moulded us most as Australian people. The four fires give us our sense of place and, for better or for worse, shape our national character.

    Jada left home at the age of sixteen, running from her own demons and the horrors of physical abuse inflicted by her mother’s boyfriend. She partied hard, and life seemed good when she was with Born, the neighborhood kingpin whose name was synonymous with money, power, and respect. But all his love couldn’t save her from a crack addiction. Jada goes from crack addict and prostitute to survivor and back again before she finds the strength to live for herself and come out on top.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not an overly enjoyable story line. Simple and predictable. An over focus on labels...ie wearing Prada.


    Has White Lines turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    What aspect of Allyson Johnson’s performance would you have changed?

    An enjoyable performance.


    Could you see White Lines being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No
