    1. This is the saddest book I have ever read cos everything it says is true. Unfortunately it will probably not be read by those who should read it. This book uses the information that is publicly available to document Australia's disgraceful political system that has implemented the offshore detention system. Even sadder than what is in the book is that 18 months after it was publish the system is still in place and the people are still stuck in Manus and Nauru.

    2. This is a story you think you already know, but Gleeson drives home the horror, the lies and the shameful way in which Australia has treated people fleeing persecution in their home countries. It's meticulously sourced, clear and heartbreaking - a crucial book.

    3. A few weeks ago, in a heartfelt and provocative speech delivered at the 58th Logie Awards, Australian television's night of nights, actress Noni Hazlehurst took subtle aim at Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's recent admonition to Australians regarding his government's hard-line immigration policy. "We cannot be misty-eyed about this," Turnbull said. "We have to be very clear and determined in our national purpose . . . We must have secure borders and we will, and they will remain so, as long as [...]

    4. Divided chronologically into four sections, Gleeson presents an illuminating narrative of the events that have occurred in detention on both Nauru and Manus Island, highlighting how abhorrent the conditions are. The book offers insight into what life is like for both asylum seekers and refugees on Nauru and Manus, as well as what the staff in the offshore detention centres have been forced to witness.Gleeson writes in a remarkably lucid style, which is both articulate and free from the sentiment [...]

    5. Gleeson is a fantastic writer, lawyer and researcher. This important investigation into the second wave of offshore processing from 2013-2016 uses a wide range of sources to show beyond doubt that the policy of offshore processing does not work and harms the asylum seekers that are subjected to it. It is meticulously documented, with research relying on a wide range of sources, including a large number of senate inquiries and incident reports from case-workers and doctors on Nauru and Manus. Thi [...]

    6. Like a lot of history-book enthusiasts, I tend to imagine, when reading, what could have been done to avert atrocities or disaster if only the protagonists knew what we do now. Reading Gleeson's book can be an emotionally difficult experience because while this reads like many histories of barbaric events, in this case, the events are still occurring, and the decisions are being taken largely in my own home town. Gleeson eschews a polemical or opinion based tone for this book, choosing instead t [...]

    7. Refugees, asylum seekers and offshore processing has polarised politics and opinion in Australia for several years now. A book like this, that attempts to provide an 'uncompromising' overview that 'gets behind the rumours and allegations to reveal what is known' will probably only be read by those already convinced that there has to be a better way to manage the perceived crisis in asylum seekers.Gleeson has put together a thoughtful, cohesive and detailed document. Her anger and frustration at [...]

    8. I have been a passionate believer in refugee rights since early high school. The treatment of refugees by our government, successive governments, has been abhorrent since the Tampa crisis (as far as I can remember and have read about). But I had very little idea of just how bad things were on Manus Island and Nauru. This book was simultaneously enlightening and disturbing and a call to action for the Australian public to do something about this and make our politicians (on both sides) care. 'Off [...]

    9. A comprehensive and unflinching explanation of the offshore processing of asylum seekers (re)implemented in 2012. It is tough to read but important, and Gleeson has made it a bit easier to get through by focusing on facts & evidence and letting them speak mostly for themselves. It was an important reminder of things that have happened in this space in the past five years, and pulled together chronologically like this is seriously damning.

    10. Wow. Thsi book is intense &incredibly sad, with a clear villain, the Australian govt & the victims- asylum seekers looking for a better life, away from war & violence.I knew a lot of this, but not all of it & bringing the information together like this, instead of read piece meal in newspaper articles, means you can understand the timeline of events & elections. It covers the preventable death of Reza Barati, killed during a riot & the death of another man a short time la [...]

    11. This made me angry and ashamed by turns. The subject is so important that it's difficult to be objective, but Gleeson's writing is meticulously researched and compelling without being emotive.

    12. 'Offshore' by Madeline Gleeson successfully ties together the snippets of information emerging from Australia's offshore detention facilities and government and media statements. This is a harrowing, and embarrassing, book written without hyperbole or aggression. This should be on every Australian's reading list.

    13. I had to read this book one slow, devastating section a day, pacing myself as the torrent of misery that Australia engages in would be overwhelming otherwise. A shameful book about our shameful treatment of fellow humans who seek basic shelter and a home where they are not in constant fear. Australia has turned its back on the world. With our track record we better hope we stay a peaceful nation. No country in the world would take Aussies as refugees- and they’d be quite right. We are failing [...]

    14. An absolute must-read for all Australians. Gleeson presents the cold hard facts of our offshore detention system, and clarifies exactly what our government has done to asylum seekers and why. In the face of a system that treats vulnerable people so cruelly, it is our responsibility to face and witness it, and Gleeson has crafted a wonderful tool for us all the educate ourselves.
