I strongly recommend this book to everyone. It's an unusual story set in Malaya in the 1930s, on the eve of the war. I won't go into the synopsis since some of the other reviewers have already done so. It's an exceptional and harrowing read but in the end, inspiring. I'm not surprised to see that it was nominated for the Booker.
