    One thought on “Poor Man's Orange

    1. Sean Kennedy on said:

      The Harp in the South trilogy can be called a bittersweet one, but PMO takes it even further. There is a lot of tragedy in this final volume, but Park's writing is a testimony to the hard knocks that life gives us, but how we struggle on regardless, even though we wonder why we do so. The poor man's orange has been tasted by everyone, and I think this book would resonate with all readers.

      A truly Australian novel which depicts generational poverty in such a way that the reader is confronted with the reality of what poverty truly means.I found it easy to picture my grandmother living during this time in Australian history. The dirt and pollution from the coal factories, the dull acceptance that the terraces where they were living were to be pulled down and replaced with high-rise, the fact that woman had no expectation of going to school past 14. On the other hand the sense of com [...]

      This book was recommended to me and I read it without having read its predecessor, in the trilogy. In Poor Man's Orange, we start off right in the middle of the family. The style has a slice-of-life feel. And it's subtle. I didn't immediately know who the hero and heroine were for a long time.Charlie's transformation is so fantastic. I hate these lazily written books where the hero just has a sudden thought that he loves her and so he’ll be totally different now and become the man we want the [...]

      Excellent. This is a really enjoyable series and Poor Man's Orange is the final part in the trilogy - although it was written second (published 1949) by Ruth Park (she published The Harp in the South in 1948). I chose to read them in the order they were written and I'm happy with this choice (the first part, chronologically speaking, is Missus, but this was actually written over thirty years later, and published in 1985). If like me you were almost totally ignorant about Australian literature I [...]

      Australia's John Steinbeck, writing intimately about the forlorn lives of Post-Depression Surry Hills slum Sydney. Heartbreaking desolation, drudge and despair, intense characters and narrative, the third of a the Darcy trilogy, perhaps slightly less strong that Harp in the South, an essential read for all Australians.

      I fell head over heels in love with the Darcy family and with Ruth Park's use of language. Beautifully written.

    7. Caitlin on said:

      (Disclaimer: I am actually reviewing the whole trilogy, so I have copied and pasted this review for all three books)Having previously only read Ruth Park’s books for children and adults, I decided time was well overdue to get around to her “Harp in the South” trilogy – which had actually begun with “A Harp in the South” before she followed it with “Poor Man’s Orange”, then she wrote the prequel “Missus.” So even though I had read them in order of the family’s story, they [...]

      such a sweet story. full of life's hard truths but always a lesson to be learned or a virtue to practice or the silver lining to be found absolutely loved it!!!

    9. Davida on said:

      The final in the Harp in the South trilogyjust heartwrenching tough our ancestors had it.

    10. Amy on said:

      Well its a classic for a reason. Real, in a way that few books are, but keeping its sense of humour, and with a transporting sense of time and place. The characters are big without being too much larger than life, and the ending is as good as we're going to get. You will cry, and you will get angry but Ruth Park should be read by everyone because she is fantastic.

    11. Brenda Kittelty on said:

      Beautiful writing but just so awfully grim and hopeless. Harp in the South had some hope and happiness, but Poor Man's Orange was much, much darker. These three novels are such a wonderful documentation of a facet of Australian life that is often ignored and swept under the carpet.

    12. Therese Spruhan on said:

      I really enjoyed re-reading this book after many years! Life was certainly tough in Surry Hills in the years after Word War II - a bit different to today's Surry Hills. Loved the character Dolour and Ruth Park's wonderful writing!

    13. Colleen Stone on said:

      Somewhat melodramatic But historically accurate and very moving. I love the Darcy family. Reading this series as a young woman helped me to understand my parents and my grand parents generation.

    14. Col on said:

      I listened to the Bolinda Audio book version of this in the car on a long drive. Really enjoyed it. Beautiful writing on the fairly mundane events of a family in the 50s in Sydney.Perhaps a little feminine for my liking but I could definitely appreciate the quality of this writing.

    15. Rod Hunt on said:

      A great continuation of the story - a soapie really with some good social commentary.

    16. Jane on said:

      There's an awful lot of heartbreak in here. Sometimes so much it makes it hard to keep reading.

    17. Evan on said:

      I love a good historical saga, me. This one was very slightly overwrought, a bit too self conscious about historical and cultural sightseeing, but forgivable.

    18. Hybrazil on said:

      A beautifully written novel that is a worthy sequel to The Harp in the South. Magical.

    19. Faye on said:

      Loved this story, sad, funny and everything in between. Everyone was very tolerant of each other they had no choice.
