  • The Yellow Banana on Nov. 07, 2011

    I read it overnight and cannot put it down. Easy to read and humourous it draws you in without you even knowing. I like the subtle and innocent humour - we tend to forget that the best form of humour is from identifying with the most mundane events. I now know what 'Menglish' is all about. I can now begin to understand the plight of migrants into Australia. Fully recommend it.

    Refreshing I am also a migrant, a student migrant. The book has captured my life accurately. Thank you, it makes me realise I am not the only one. The book is simple to read and yet very relevant, it spoke straight to me. It does not use 'flowery' language to communicate, and the straight forward everyday language used just makes it so refreshing. It is a wonderful story of one person's perspective of his life. I particularly liked the way it looks at the cultural difference - between countries. Very brave of the author to talk about his personal experience - I too learn from the author's experience. Thank you for sharing your pain. Great read.
