It is an Australian book, written by an Australian author, set in Perth, Western Australia. So naturally it was made into an Australian mini-tv series, with an Australian cast and crew, and was shown on Australian television's first. It was aired on television down under in May 2011...and finally, eight months later, it is on UK television. Airing on Sky Atlantic on Saturday evening's at 9pm, Cloudstreet is a six-part series, the first starting last week on Saturday 7th January 2012. I recorded it on my sky box and look forward to watching it when I get back to Uni tomorrow...I'll let you know how it is :)
Here's one of my favourite quotes from the book, and the trailer for the tv series;
'On the long grassy bank beneath the peppermint trees and the cavernous roots of the moreton bay figs...The university clock chimes and a rowing team slides past with the sun in its eyes...the sweet coppery water where jellyfish float and blowfish bloat...here by the river, the beautiful, the beautiful the river...I burst into the moon, sun, stars of who I really am...Perfectly. Always. Everyplace. Me.'
HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE IT!? Seriously! Just watching this trailer gives me butterflies in my tummy and makes me all excited to finally see it TOMORROWWW! :)
