Wombat Sushi is a hilarious, comedic tale of six Australian dancers and one Australian singer who are thrown together in a tour to Japan. Rhonda Louise tells the tale in a very unique, extremely sarcastic (and perhaps a slightly mental) way, which I just adored. This book is not like anything else I have ever read. Seriously. I wasn’t really sure what to expect with a name like ‘Wombat Sushi,’ although now I think the title is absolute genius and portrays exactly what you will find in the book- nothing that you will expect. Sexual conquests (and likewise, the lack thereof for some of the characters), drunken nights out, petty squabbles, and a look at things from the point of view of a very dramatic, possibly slightly insane, woman. This is just a few of the things you will find in this book. What you probably wouldn’t expect from hearing this, is that the book actually takes a very real look at many very real life experiences. The seven very different girls grow and mature throughout the book, but succumb to their immaturity still, as we all really will. You know, you will just have to read the book to know what I’m talking about. There is some language and circumstances in the book that definitely make this inappropriate for anyone under eighteen. If you’re over eighteen, however, go get your own copy. Seriously. Everyone should read this book. It’s well-written, hilarious, and surprisingly realistic.
