'But "Our Pleasant Vices" is an Australian novel sui generis. It opens up to such of our imaginative writers as possess the necessary experience a new field for fiction–the life of the small country town, or township, where a peculiar class of society exists, where the old-established squatting families of the surrounding district form a sort of "county family" aristocracy. Mr. MacMaster agreeably presents to us the class of people with whom the country township resident is familiar – the lawyer, the doctor, the banker, the station manager, the sons and daughters of the squatter, the county editor, the broken-down gentleman, whose tendency to liquor has been his ruin, and the third-rate actor run to seed. We have the "township's" festivities – its amateur dramatics, dances, and races – presented to us, its little "sensations," and its police-court scandals. All this is pleasant enough in its way, especially when handled with the light, yet graphic, touch of one who both knows his subject and how to treat it. But the book has other merits to recommend it – a love story, of course, a heroine who is involved in a very unpleasant predicament, and is eventually extricated therefrom by the exertions of her lover; a villain of highly interesting and purely Australian type – perhaps the best character delineation in the work. Above all, there is a plot most ingeniously worked out, yet cleverly concealed, novel in design, yet not tragically heroic.'
