A Town Like Alice

| | Comments (0)

Last week I finished reading A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute.  This was a book I picked up at a BookCrossing meetup years and years ago and finally got around to reading.  I quite enjoyed it, and read it quite quickly.  I didn't really know anything of the story either, so didn't have any expectations.  It's kind of two stories back to back - set in Malaysia and Australia.  I liked how the Malaysian part of the story was actually based on a similar march some Dutch women did across Sumatra during the war.  

Must see if I can find the mini-series some time to watch.
