I found this book rambling, irrelevant and unconvincing. My interest was kindled because this was shortlisted as a man Booker prize winner, and the Malaysian setting during the war and insurgency era

The name Tan Twan sounds very dirty.

I should have said that part of my problem with books, is the author's voice. I can't help but imagining what Tan TWan sounds like.

The whole book was "read" to me by Kahn from king of the hill.

Smart authors choose anglo pen names.
