Summary

When paramedic Bruce Pike is called out to deal with another teenage adventure gone wrong, he knows better than anyone what happened and how. 

Thirty years before, that dead boy could have been him. Bruce remembers what it was like to be a risk-taking kid, to feel that thrill and that fear....

Breath by Tim Winton is the story of Bruce and his best friend, Loonie, and the obsession that changed both of their lives. It is about the exhilaration of the sea and the waves, the treacherous addiction to risk and the intoxicating power of forbidden love.

Superbly crafted and emotionally compelling

I’ve no interest whatsoever in surfing . This is just a wonderful coming-of-age plus plus novel full of colour , extreme high’s and low’s , and the news that life is hard . But oh my , it’s to be lived . My third of TW’s diverse canon .. all brilliant . Self contained and forensically observed . Wonderful .
