Very compelling book that uses interesting stories to give insight into Malay culture. I often wonder what it's really like in some other country--not as a broad generalization but through the experiences of individuals. This book fills that need.
That's where I started...but this book provided more. The overarching story is very personal and heartfelt. You share in the author's journey through life, from fear to excitement to soul-crushing sadness to enlightenment to joy...and back and forth and back and forth.
Overall, a moving and entertaining read. I'm looking forward to the sequel!
