It usually takes me a few weeks to read a book, but I read Anna Spargo-Ryan's debut novel, The Paper House, in 7days; that's speed-reading for me. The fact that most stationery items are cheap or inexpensive does not necessarily mean they are unwanted. The story is sensitive without being overtly emotional and the plot is clever, yet realistic.

Despite the imperfect support of loved ones, the protagonist goes to some very dark places. The Paper House is written with the same beauty as The Bell Jar. To me, that was the realest moment in the book and I think if there were more real moments mixed into the magical parts of the story, the overall effect would have grabbed me more.

Office stationery items are of great importance for everyday office chores. Paperhouse (1988) Directed by Bernard Rose. All the characters were whole beings, with flaws and with oddities, and with lovely attributes. Can't wait for more from Anna Spargo-Ryan. A truly wonderful, wondrous, real, unreal, touching and thoughtful story. Yet the house isn’t a retreat from reality either. It traverses some familiar ground, grief and loss, and mental illness, but it did so differently enough to keep me well engaged. However, I loved the cover – designed by one of Australia’s top book designers, Sandy Cull – and so was more than willing to give it a go. Welcome back.

The adolescent mind can also be a scary place. There was an origami, scrapbooking and lego vibe to the whole place! I started reading this at lunchtime yesterday.

Her proze is gobsmackingly beautiful. Every now and then, a very special book comes along. Can't wait to see what she writes next. The romance develops naturally, as the two youths are initially somewhat critical of each other. Both heartbreaking and beautiful at once and so well written you can't help but be swallowed up into the rhythmic tidal plot. And then I was pregnant, and we realised we had no space for a baby. Seriously good. Highly recommended but would note it is not suitable if you just want a light little casual read. A really beautiful read. “Paperhouse” captures a dream like tone with its eerie production design. Spargo-Ryan writes beautifully, with surprising metaphors and a knack for drawing whole characters with just a few well chosen scenes. One of those talents that I wish I had but for some reason just can’t seem to grasp. A sharp-eyed, bittersweet depiction of the love between parents and children, and the havoc that love can wreak.

Mostly, it’s the young cast that shines in “Paperhouse.” The film is the sole screen credit of Charlotte Burke, whose Anna is insensitive, bratty, wounded, inquisitive, emotional, and ultimately brave. Very highly recommended. It is exquisitely written - so many sentences I could live in - and the story is desperately sad, but also somehow hopeful. However, my favourite thing about this book is the pace in which the prose is presented. We visited it before going to see, The Paper House, a little gem tucked away on the edge of Rockport, MA, is an amazing work of imagination, ingenuity and “dedication” to what began as a hobby for one Mr. Elis F.
