Ransom by David Malouf – A Short Webography

RANSOM BY DAVID MALOUF David Malouf's Ransom

A list of web sites means very little! It’s only a beginning and choosing the right sites to read and follow through on can be difficult. Choose well and you gain, choose badly and you spend some time wondering why you came here! Look at the links; they are in alphabetical order, but also look at the sites in terms of what they might indicate, i.e. Book Reviews, Historical or Geographical Background, Educational Sites, School Sites, VCE sites, YouTube, MP3, Interviews with Authors, etc.

All can be very useful but much depends on you and your interest(s) and how far you want to take your research – the more you look, the more you will “see”.

If you have read the book, make sure that your take notes on each chapter, and then use the links to build you knowledge and vocabulary. Keep noting … there are no shortcuts!
