A Hidden Gem,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Village in the Jungle (Classic Reprint) (Paperback)
A beautifully written view into village life on a tropical island in colonial Britain. This novel is vivid and readable. While the author clearly illustrates a particular culture and time, that of a rural family in the "dry" forest area, where life is particularly hard and short, the psychological and social effects of poverty have universal qualities. The colonial administration system is clearly one of the villains of the book, and the gentle innocence of the main characters portray a way of life influenced by Buddhism present in the island to this day.

Got rid of your fake review concerning JK Rowling 's new book, I see. Shame as I only wanted an informed discussion before deciding to part with my money. The fact you only jumped on the hate bandwagon is supported by you removing your review and your lack of knowledge concerning the book.
