Review: Digging Up Dirt by Pamela Hart
This was a fun read from start to finish. While I have absolutely no doubt that it will appeal to fans of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, the author's ability to poke fun at politics and the misuse of religion in a way that is both amusing and in no way at all offensive truly shines. The Australian Family Party seem a lot like certain other political parties we've seen in Australia over the years. Anyone familiar with fundamentalist mega churches will immediately recognise the Radiant Joy Church and, hopefully, get a bit of a giggle out of it all like I did. On a more serious note, I absolutely loved teenage Patience and felt that the portrayal was quite true to life.
Overall, Digging Up Dirt is a lot of fun and a rollicking read as it tackles the ultimate taboo subjects--sex, death, religion and politics.
This book counts toward my reading goal for the Aussie Author Challenge 2021
