    free [ Along the Broken Bay epub ] ✓ Flora J. Solomon – hellobuy.co.za The book gets off to a slow start with too much description and character background that could wait to be incorporated into the narrative later on in the story It soon picks up and rattles along at a fair pace right up until the end It is most certainly a roller coaster of action and emotions In fact roller coaster is very apt If you think about it that ride takes you slowly to the top of the first climb and then dive

Colonialist claptrap I couldn t finish this book because of the paternalistic and problematic view of the Philippines The characters are written with the assumption that they are white odd for a book that takes place in the Philippines Don t worry about being able to tell the Filipino characters apart from the white characters though because they re all caricatures with dark skin and black hair who speak in broken English and are mocked for continuing to follow some of the indigenous traditions that colonizers failed to wipe outHere is an excerpt from Pacita Pestano Jacinto s diary Living With the Enemy which she kept during the Japanese occupation Notice how a Filipina describes her countrymenConcentration of enemy civilians has been going

Finished reading July 19th 2019 Manila s magic was gone replaced by an undercurrent of fear potent enough to be sensed by an observer A copy of this book was kindly provided to me by Netgalley and Lake Union Publishing in exchange for an honest review Thank you view spoilerI have always had a weak spot for historical fiction and especially if the story is set during WWI or WWII I admit I was sold as soon as I read the blurb of Along The Broken Bay as you don t often see a WWII fiction setting in the Philippines and Gina s story of working in the resistance sounded absolutely fascinating I was looking forward to fully emerge myself in what I thought would be a new favorite story but sadly fate had a different reaction for me in store Becau

Overall this was a good book I enjoyed most of it However I deduct one star for good reason It was clear to me and later confirmed the author has never been to the Philippines She can get away with that for many but I knew and it caused me to stand back a little instead of becoming utterly immersed in the setting She did fake it uite well though It was a shame because the book was meticulously researched and really did justice to those terrible times Even a few weeks in Luzon would have helped enormously into getting to the essential heart of Filipinos and their culture instead of attempting to replicate parts in this novel by way of distance learning The faking also occurred with some of her characters as I could not uite connect with
