One thought on “Thursday Bookclub for September

  1. Although this novel explored topical issues of how the palm oil plantations affects the habitat of the orangutangs and the indigenous Sarawak people the group felt it failed to explore the family characters in the novel in any great depth. The historical journey of Malaya was of interest as was the time Bette and Philip spent in the concentration camp. Readers felt the ending was rather predictable. A good airport read.
