Boori and Meme succeed in this The book unfolds in layers, gently reinforcing the reader’s ingestion with story upon story that strips you down and then builds.

Boori and Meme succeed in this. Like Monty says, the ice-cream needs to be eaten slowly, digested in stages or you’ll get a brain freeze. The book unfolds in layers, gently reinforcing the reader’s ingestion with story upon story that strips you down and then builds you back up by sharing the wisdom, strength and secrets of Monty’s coping mechanisms. These comparisons and metaphoric scenarios are another theme visited frequently throughout the book and is an effective tool to elucidate and educate, a highly effective one would be the Anzac/Invasion day example.

A great insight into the suffering of Aboriginal people and a great story of a man who has beaten the odds to come out on top while still maintaining his Indigenous Heritage.

Boori Monty Pryor's "Maybe Tomorrow" is a delightful, thought-provoking book, full of insightful stories (both humoristic and tragic) about Aboriginal and non-Aboriginals' interactions in Australia. It is easy reading, told in a vivid, story-telling language, and the stories mostly revolve around Boori's experiences with school children, when he talks to them about his Aboriginal culture, traditions, the Aboriginal situation today, etc. "Maybe Tomorrow" brings up a lot of prejudices that many non-Aboriginals unfortunately have against Aboriginals. Boori gives his side of the story in a neat, creative, non-bitter, and understandable fashion.
I would definitely recommend "Maybe Tomorrow". It gives you a great picture of Aboriginal culture, traditions, mentality, etc. It also helps give this amazing people the respect and appreciation, they so much deserve. In addition, I think that Boori's messages not only apply to Australian Aboriginals, but may also give an idea as to why other indigenous peoples across the planet live the way they do, in their attempt to adapt to non-indigenous (or white) society.

Maybe Tomorrow was a fabulous book. I was into Boori magnificent tale right away. I was about to say i feel his passion, but i could never feel the amount of passion that Boori has, and spreads throught the Australian land. I knew ther were many problems with Aborigonals in Australia, but never quite so bad. I thought people just didn't have any real respect for them. which made it hard fort them to get on in life. But i never knew of any of the harsh treatments they go through. Especially abuse from Police. The way he lived his life, and told his stories made me want to read on. I'm also into Djing and Basketball like Boori which caught my attention more. The other day I was thinking how great it would be to go and visit this man and his family in the Bush. I come from the same area as him too. I would love to see the way the traditional Aborigonals go through their days, preferably without hassle of 'white Australians.' Overall, definately an insperational book, and a must read for many people. Humerous, yet serious problems in life. Well done Boori(Monty)Pryor!
