5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and Gripping, 22 Jun. 2013
This review is from: A Town Like Alice (Vintage Classics) (Kindle Edition)
I would not have read this but for it being a book club read-I would have missed out on this must read. The first 30% recounted the main character-Jean-enforced march with a group of women around Malaya as the Japanese occupying army sends them between fabled womens camps which haven't been built. I found this part fascinating to learn about but harrowing at times due to the obvious difficulties of war. The rest of the book deals with Jean inheriting money and deciding to track down a fellow prisoner who took a risk for her and paid the price for it. Again this part is fascinating as Jean becomes quite the business woman and builds an Australian town. Jean is a brilliant character who keeps you reading.
