Ivy Ngeow is also adept at conveying atmosphere and tone, something which is always difficult to do, and in the case of conveying ideas about
Malaysia to a wider audience this is done with real skill. Combined with a plot that is gripping and entertaining the book has pretty much everything going for it. The multi-verse characters are convincing and the wide cultural breadth is handled adroitly, really quite a page-turner. Seriously enjoyable read!
