I just finished this book. It started slow then it picked up for me. I wanted to know what was going to happen.

Jon Abbott I'm late to the party, but I've just purchased The Separation. I've got my fingers crossed.

Jon Abbott Well, I recommended The Separation. My review is here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

I was disappointed. I wanted more history about Malaysia in the period before transition to independence. Plus, I wanted more in the way of the unexpected in the plot.

However, for the purpose of this group it is a great lesson that the world was in a huge turmoil in the two decades after the end of WWII.

I also expected more history. But I did enjoy it. I also like the Charles Dickens type ending.
