Format: Paperback
I want to correct a serious error in the last sentence of the first review posted on this page. It says that Toer's books "are banned in his native MALAYSIA." This is not the correct country. Toer is a native of INDONESIA, and the Buru quartet chronicles the emotional, political and social emergence of that nation. I met the author when I had the opportunity to translate for him during his trip to the US in 1999 -- I strongly feel that he would want people to know that his country is Indonesia!

another great book by Toer. The only problem is the naive way in which he promotes his leftish, dated political views. But overall he is a great author

I am on the third book of the Buru quartet. I have a great passion in reading books of countries where I have been on holiday. I really enjoyed it because I learnt a lot about history and colonisation in Indonesia. Pramoedya Ananta Toer is a great writer, he writes in a way and describes characters that reading his books for me it is like to watch a movie. I am very upset because I love collecting the books I read and enjoy, unfortunately I have lost the book Child of Nations, left on the plane last July when I went on holiday to Italy. I asked at the lost and found office at the airport and they asked me to pay £20.00 to get the book back. Thieves! If anybody doesn't want to keep the book after reading it please let me know and I give you the address where to deliver to and pay for the deliver.
Thank you.
Angela

Format: Paperback
Pramoedya's ability to illustrate the conflicts among the pure Javanese natives, half-breed Indos, and the Dutch colonialist masters is nothing short of phenomenal. The rights of the natives proved to be meaningless when it came face to face against the greeds of the colonial masters.
