Preview of this Instaread: The Narrow Road to the Deep North is a complex novel by writer Richard Flanagan. The novel tells the story of Alwyn Dorrigo Evans, an Australian man who struggles with war, adultery, and guilt during the World War II era.

Born into a working class family in Tasmania, Australia, Dorrigo strives to be more than his class. He becomes a surgeon and courts a young woman, Ella. Dorrigo is attracted to her because he knows if he marries her, he will be recognized as part of her class, leaving the stigma of his own working class behind.

While still courting Ella, Dorrigo joins the military at the start of World War II. While in basic training, he meets and falls in love with Amy, the wife of his uncle, Keith Mulvaney. It is a loveless marriage. Dorrigo and Amy begin an intense affair. Mulvaney finds out about the affair.

Review before book

Never having heard a review before a book it has inspired me to read the book as it sounds like there are so many dimensions to this book that I fear I would not have picked up if I had not heard this.
,as be I should look for more reviews like this for other books?
