Loved the narrator. Her simple personifications and jangling coastal rhythms just put me on a plane to Singapore. Wistfully transparent coming of age story.
I downloaded this book as an audiobook and the performance by Angela Lin did justice to the story. Its not a book you can compare to Emma because it is a book that stands alone and should be considered on its own merits.
I found it very interesting, because I understood the culture and the language. I think it would be a bit difficult to "get it" if you did not have some prior knowledge or experience of the way of life in Singapore in particular and Asia in general.
It was brilliantly written and very insightful although a little bit sad. If only more women felt empowered to think and value more about themselves.
Overall, recommended reading and maybe some research beforehand into the culture, you will be very entertained.
