In a dazzling act of ventriloquism, Peter Carey gives Ned Kelly a voice so wild, passionate and original that it is impossible not to believe that the famous bushranger himself is speaking from beyond the grave. True History of the Kelly Gang is the song of Australia, and it sings its protest in a voice at once crude and delicate, menacing and heart-wrenching. Carey gives us Ned Kelly as orphan, as Oedipus, as horse thief, farmer, bushranger, reformer, bank-robber, police-killer and, finally, as his country's beloved Robin Hood.

You can compare ned kelly tot jesse james: Bot were famous, both were legendary 'criminals', both had their own gang, both were feared, both had death and other warrants on their head, ...
This book is a historic novel and 'tales' about the life of ned kelly. Written in a very special grammar, sentences intertwined, you will have to do a little work to get used to the language. But when you do you'll read an interesting and good story told by ned kelly himself, adressed to his granddaughter, using a kind of diary style to report about his family history.
Great read!
