    1. The Secret of Hanging Rock not to be confused with Picnic at Hanging Rock Joan Lindsay is reputedly the lost or excised final chapter from that novel.Whilst seemingly left to Lindsay s literary agent for publication after her death for the purpose of explaining the mystery and answering questions previously raised by the original novel there still seems some question regarding a Why this apparently key last chapter was left out of the original publication and b The authenticity of this alleged m [...]

    2. The official ending is really rubbish So contrasting to the book that I honestly refuse to be convinced that it was written by the same author.Rubbish.

    3. The so called secret eighteenth chapter started its life as something fairly innocuous a by product of the editorial process One of Joan Lindsay s editors, Sandra Forbes, recalled twenty years after the book s release in 1967 that Joan was always doubtful about that final chapterIts eventual exclusion was a literary decision, reached mutually by author and publisher And the evidence for Lindsay s doubt appears in a 1974 interview she gave for the Arts Australia Council in which her view of what [...]

    4. First, a history of this elusive final chapter Lindsay had originally had this chapter in her novel but was urged by her publishers to take it out of the novel for various reasons Years later this chapter was released to the general public from everyone I ve heard that s read this, the reactions are mixed Some like it, some love it some are just downright disappointed I have to say that I m not quite sure where I stand on this.If you ve read the book Picnic at Hanging Rock then you need no descr [...]

    5. La soluzione del mistero di Hanging Rock non di fatto una soluzione definitiva Forse pi interessante la storia editoriale che il capitolo finale in s L interpretazione finale mi sembra un po tirata.

    6. Firstly, it s pointless reading this if you haven t read Joan Lindsay s Picnic at Hanging Rock.This is the final chapter written by Lindsay that was chopped in a mutual decision made by Lindsay and her editor This teeny tiny book is a few pages of Chapter 18, and some rather interesting notes from her editor, and by Yvette Rouseau, who wrote The Murders at Hanging Rock , a book offering up various takes on What Actually Happened.Personally, I find the ending of Secret a cop out, and I prefer th [...]

    7. This is the missing chapter 18, which was left out of the original 1967 novel that explains what happened to the missing girls from The Picnic at Hanging Rock Lindsay submitted this chapter to her editor in 1972 with the stipulation that it not be published until five years after her death in 1984 Strangely unappealing as an ending, it is clear as mud and seems to sort of incorporate aboriginal dream timing I was disappointed, and the novel is not enhanced by providing a sort of explanation to a [...]

    8. This will probably be the shortest book I ll read all year It is actually merely Chapter Eighteen, the famous last chapter of Picnic at Hanging Rock which was held back from original publication until after Joan Lindsay s death It is a pity that this chapter didn t receive as much polishing as the rest of the book and evidently there was some mixup with the laying out of the manuscript All this is explained along with Yvette Rouseau s interesting analysis of the last chapter One for the devotees [...]

    9. My favorite part of this and what got it shelved under mind blown is the wonderful commentary by Yvonne Rousseau.

    10. The last chapter of Picnic at Hanging Rock was removed from Joan Linsday s manuscript and only published after her death and here it is But not before many people had speculated as to what actually happened And because it s published separately to the book I imagine a lot of people still never know it s available All I will say is that Joan Lindsay enjoyed playing with the concept of time I feel complete having read it now, but in some ways the mystery and the secrets still linger on I enjoyed t [...]

    11. I googled the final chapter after reading a reminder of this story today being Valentines Day I have never read the final chapter prior to this and am really unsure how to take it I feel that the author and publishers did the right thing by not including it in the original publishing of the story I truly believe this chapter would have detracted from how good the rest of the book is I enjoyed the commentary following the chapter but really think I will stick to the novel as it was originally pre [...]

    12. I enjoyed the chapter and commentaries I liked the anecdotes about Lindsay and her life I would have liked to be her friend, we both see the world a little differently to most.I liked the chapter, it was fairly similar to what I would have thought was implied by the book and movie And I found it much spookier than a silly rational explanation.

    13. The final chapter of Picnic at Hanging Rock The original book definitely works best without it, though of course it s an interesting read.

    14. That was interesting I wanted to save it for later but was quickly pulled in I like both versions of Picnic the one with this explanation and accompanying notes and the one without Both good in different ways.Found it here carusopascoskiles.wordpres

    15. The 18th and unpublished chaper of the famous Picnic at Hanging Rock Luckily it does not explains too much but I think ending Picnic with 17 chapters was a very good choice.I did nt find the commentary interesting

    16. I cannot go into much detail about the final excised chapter of Picnic At Hanging Rock without revealing too much Thus, I will simply say that I enjoyed the last chapter and found Yvonne Rousseau s interpretation of Chapter 18 in relation to the novel, to be utterly brilliant and fascinating While the story is thouroughly enjoyable and strong on its own, I am glad that chapter 18 was eventually published posthumously It gives curious readers, such as myself, even to ponder when considering that [...]

    17. The moment I heard about this final hidden chapter I was intrigued The fact that it was removed from the original novel just added to the already intense mystery and I just had to get my hands on a copy to found out what had really happened at Hanging rock However, after reading it don t feel any better, in fact I feel confused It is a strange ending that doesn t fit in with the rest of novel Personally, I would of preferred if the events were left as a mystery.

    18. While it s interesting to see what ended up on the cutting room floor as it were the commentaries are posturing and self aggrandizing in the extreme The excerpted chapter itself does nothing to enhance the psychological appeal of the novel, and is only interesting as a historical cultural literary curiosity.

    19. My Uncle was the one given this book and he was her literacy agent Before Joan died he interviewed her and she talks about writing it and why she didn t release it in the first place and what it meant.My cousins donated all this to NSW State Reference library so you can listen for yourself the authentic nature of it.

    20. I do not recommend reading this It was poorly written and took away the mystery from the original story.

    21. Weird I didn t get it so had to read an interpretation of what it meant It was interesting but was a bit of an LSD trip I wouldve preferred a clearer explanation.
