did not like it
bookshelves: singapore

I mostly blast this book for false advertising. Supposedly about a "repressive" family during the Japanese occupation of Singapore this book was about growing up in a highly abusive family. It was horrifying, exhausting, etc.

I'm sure I would have rated it higher if I had any sense of what I was getting into beforehand. So just be forewarned.
