    Garbage

    This book is unreadable. The fact it won the Man Booker prize in 2014 is a palpable indictment of the literati who decide such things.

    Poorly written fiction

    Could not get past the first 50 pages. Knew people who came from Tasmania, were in Changi goal and actually worked as prisoners helping the sick on the Burma railway. No one of their age and upbringing used foul language. It is fiction, with fictitious characters in a historical setting. The story is a disrespect to the survivors. More than that it is poorly written flip-flopping through time and place. Descriptions of scenes are poor. It was no surprise to learn after I gave up reading it to learn that the author was a socialist who appears to dislike business leaders and free enterprise.

    Harrowing but rewarding

    Harrowing subject matter but empathetic characters - demonstrated why so may people lives (for more than one generation) were deeply effected by war
