One of the reason I read it was due to the setting of the story.
Aside from that, the story is about history of Malaysia, which I was much interested in.
It gave me a whole new insight of the situations in Malaysia back then.
I love this book real much.
Although this book is not very thick, less than 200 pages, I took time finishing it as the book is written with many details The author is very descriptive and he creates a very clear picture for us to illustrate with our mind It opens up mind about how life was during that era A good read.
I read this for class, I think Malaysian authors are really good, even though this book is not my cup of tea The culture, history, traditions, so unique and yet so fascinating The writing style is excellent, I appreciate the text but I can t say I enjoyed it either, so 3 stars read this book in a day So fascinating and by a local author Two thumbs up P

Our last book on Malaysia for the international book club This one was told from a muchpersonal place of a young boy The poverty, dysfunctional family, and some cruelty were disturbing, especially when seen from the eyes of a child.
The writing style is quite hesitant and stunted, some of his metaphors are very odd and implausible, and it s quite confusing to follow the events in the book The plot didn t really go anywhere However, there was quite a few precious moments from his childhood and his struggles to educate himself It also speaks to the status of the English language in Malaysia, which makes it a somewhat interesting read.
