A former college suggested I should read a book and I ordered it from the library. After 3-4 weeks I asked if the book had arrived, and now it was on its way. Finally it arrived and I started reading. I was thrilled, loved what I read. I was about to recommend the book to another person and searched for the english title. I found it. But I also found other information about the book. I haven’t finished the book yet, as the info made me annoyed and sad. But I’ve decided to finish it anyway. Below is two links with info:
“Helping Yourself: Fabrication of Aboriginal Culture “ By Cath Ellis
“Morgan’s Mutant Fantasy: A critique of Marlo Morgan’s book Mutant Message Down Under “ By Chris Sitka (Napaltjarri)
I belive it’s good to always question what you hear and read, but I never questioned the book as she wrote in the edition I have that one can read it as a fiction. So she doesn’t say the story is true but doesn’t deny its authenticity either. Yet I’m a bit disappointed. But please read the book, but do read at least the link above “Morgan’s Mutant Fantasy: A critique of Marlo Morgan’s book Mutant Message Down Under”, where a lot of good info about the aboriginal culture and customs is to be found.
Here is a third link: ” Documentary Film: The Secret Country: The First Australians Fight Back ”
I finished the book today, Sunday 18th of May. It is sad she wasn’t honest from the beginning, now I had to alter my mind from believing this was a documentary to learn it was fiction. Well, she’s at least a story-teller.
