Well written, although the fragmented style was a little hard to follow, at times. Interesting insight into the colonialism of Singapore and its relationship with England, China, and Japan in the 1940's. It is a bit of a difficult read because of some graphic description of torture by the Japanese as they occupy Singapore.
