5.0 out of 5 stars A must read piece of historical fiction., 26 Jun 2014

A fascinating read that I cannot recommend enough. This gripping read manages to fuse a detailed and thought provoking exploration of an under researched period of history with an exciting and rollicking story. A well developed cast of characters are the core of the story and they drive along an exciting, but often dark tale. This story of post-World War 2 South-East Asia would be of interest to any amateur historians who wish to find out more through a well written piece of historical fiction. I cannot recommend enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST READ!, 3 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Set against the backdrop of Indonesia's fight for Independence at the end of the Second World War, `Black Sun, Red Moon: A Novel of Java' is packed with period detail and does not shy away from the realities of war. From Kate and Ota to Lamban, Ishida and Meg, Rory Marron has created a host of fascinating characters through which he brings the factual events (both extraordinary and unexpected) to life. Their individual struggles to cope with the conflicts of warfare are woven skilfully into a web of interlocking stories, which spirals out to give the whole bloodied picture of the War in South East Asia. This is a compelling and gripping book; bring on the conclusion, `Merdeka Rising' - and the film!
