Lockie Leonard Scumbuster is a play based on the novel by Tim Winton.
*** SPOILER ALERT*** skip this part if you want to read the book for yourself 😛
It starts of with a boy named Lockie who is surfing at the beach one day when he notices that the water is heavily polluted. He meets a boy named Geoff Eggleston a.k.a Egg (He is a metalhead). Together they go throught twenty chapters together to try and stop the pollution along with some help from his mom Mrs Leonard and his dad Sarge (who is a police officer), his ex girlfriend Vicki Streeton and Eggs mom and dad. Unfortunately there is a corrupt major in town which doesn’t care about the pollution but just wants the money. So Lockie, Egg, Mrs Eggleston and Vicki are sent on a mission to block the pipe causing the pollution causing hundreds jobless but cleaning up the environment. They succeed and the next day Lockie goes out for a surf with no more worry for the environment.
*** NO MORE SPOILERS :D***
I don’t think I would recommend this book to anyone really. The storyline is good but the writing is too Australian for me to understand. With all the Aussie terms I don’t think anyone could understand it, then again it is the book of the play. The storyline has a very good environmental message that is focused on throughout the whole book but wasn’t an interesting book. I would prefer the play version as then you can picture what they are doing and know what I going on 😛
Overall I rate this book a 1/10 drac points
Signing out, Itsdrac 😀
