Potiki

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I don’t know what it is with Grace. I can admire the craft, this particular book is very thought provoking, but it doesn’t touch my heart.

She does write beautifully though and in New Zealand not just Maori land rights (which is the subject of this book)are topical – it is watching developers buy up properties and leaving them empty while so many people are homeless or living in cars. House prices are soaring over here where in much of the country it is difficult to find a house at less than $800k. Auckland – over a million.

It just isn’t right.

Funnily enough a comment another Kiwi author, Sue McCauley, made about this book moved me more.

Every marketeer and property developer in the country deserves a copy of Potiki. Patricia Grace sees straight but are we listening?
