[Review Essay] The Light Between the Oceans Brian McFarlane , 2016 single work review essay
— Appears in: Australian Book Review , December no. 387 2016; (p. 42) ABR : Arts 2016;
'If you read a novel prior to seeing the film derived from it, you know what to expect by way of major plot manoeuvers.

As one who believes fidelity to be ideal for relationships, I favour playing around with adaptions.' (Introduction)
