The Eighth Wonder is an outstanding set piece!
Pull up a chair and settle into an extravaganza of history, pageantry, rising feminism, animal rights, personal aspirations, architecture and blinding love. The Eighth Wonder is an outstanding set piece and if you could see me now, I am extending a standing applause to author Tania Farrelly.
A beautifully written piece of art.
Monumental, dazzling, fascinating utterly breathtaking and a beautifully written piece of art.
A fantastic story!
A new Australian fiction author has arrived! A fantastic story that just kept me turning the pages.
I loved the originality of it!
The Eighth Wonder is an excellent novel, the very best kind of historical fiction where you are immersed entirely into another era. I loved the originality of it, the rish atmopshere and the authentic characters.
What an inspired, utterly remarkable read.
What an inspired, utterly remarkable read this was. Tania has outdone herself with this phenomenal debut. A rich multi-layered tale that took me on a journey through New york in the late 19th century, absolutely fascinating.
I feel in love with the visionary characters.
I loved the themes of gender equality, animal rights and unionisation and I feel in love with the visionary characters.
‘The Suffragette’ meets ‘The Greatest Showman’ in this story of passion and courage as a young feminist fights against the rules of society to find her place in the world.
Journey back to the streets of New York in 1897, the richest city in the world, and where wizards of progress like Edison, Tesla, Hearst, Morgan and Twain all walk the streets daily, illuminating life’s expansive possibilities one household at a time, if that is, you’ve been born male. And meet the courageous women who refuse to accept the status quo and who, in fighting for equality, speak for all who have no voice.
Inspired by true events and the women of the gilded era.
