Picnic at Hanging Rock

Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay (F. W. Cheshire, 1967); audiobook read by Yael Stone (Bolinda, 2018) Pointless Australiana. While some of the lengthier complex sentences lose their coherence in the audiobook reading, it is Hanging Rock’s mystery element—the dangled carrot that might tie together its inconsistencies and senseless character actions—that most disappoints, being left entirely unaddressed.
