Alice to Nowhere | [Evan Green]

Alice to Nowhere

Once a fortnight, Fred Crawford drives his battered truck on the toughest mail run in the world - across sand dunes, salt pans and the fearsome Stony Desert. For the men and women of the remote cattle stations on the way, Fred's visit is a welcome diversion, especially when he brings a new nursing sister for the tiny mission hospital at Birdsville. But trouble also arrives.

Audible Editor Reviews

Richard Aspel has a voice well-suited to this tale of action and intrigue in Australia’s famed, desolate Outback. Deep and rich with plenty of gravel, Aspel occasionally hushes his tone to draw the listener in.

Alice to Nowhere, the first book by the late Australian motor enthusiast Evan Green, focuses on Fred Crawford, a tough mailman who delivers mail by car to the most remote places in Australia - including the Stony Desert, which seems positively Martian. One day in 1957, Fred is delivering Barbara Dean, a young nurse, to central Australia. Mayhem erupts when a couple of desperadoes overtake Fred’s truck and hold Barbara hostage. Alice to Nowhere is for those who love action and the brutal beauty of the desert.

Publisher's Summary

Once a fortnight, Fred Crawford drives his battered truck on the toughest mail run in the world - across sand dunes, salt pans and the fearsome Stony Desert. For the men and women of the remote cattle stations on the way, Fred's visit is a welcome diversion, especially when he brings a new nursing sister for the tiny mission hospital at Birdsville.

But trouble also arrives. Two vicious men have stowed away, fleeing a brutal murder.

Alice To Nowhere is the story of desperate men and lonely people. It is an action-packed drama played out under the awesome influence of the vast emptiness of the Australian Outback.

    "Aspell stumbles on this one"
    If you’ve listened to books by Evan Green before, how does this one compare?

    I think I would've enjoyed this book in print, but I can only compare it to Clancy's Crossing, also narrated by Aspell. CC is MUCH better than ATN, particularly in narration.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Not sure. Aspell's dialogue in particular was poor. I am starting to think Clancy's Crossing is an exceptionally good performance, but Alice to Nowhere, with so many Australian characters, was read so poorly that I couldn't continue past the first 1/4 of the book.
