    Along the Broken Bay PDF/EPUB ô Along the MOBI along epub, broken pdf, Along the download, Along the Broken Bay PDF/EPUBColonialist 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 descr

    Along the Broken Bay PDF/EPUB ô Along the MOBI along epub, broken pdf, Along the download, Along the Broken Bay PDF/EPUBThe 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 dives and twists and turns and it makes your head and body spin You scream you laugh you cry This book will do all of that to youThe author has obviously done a lot of research for this book She has done as I always ad

    Along the Broken Bay PDF/EPUB ô Along the MOBI along epub, broken pdf, Along the download, Along the Broken Bay PDF/EPUBWhat an unbelievable but based on facts storyI’ve not read many stories about World War II in the Phillipines but this one and the author’s previous book A Pledge of Silence certainly opened my eyes to the fact that the Americans who were living there when the war broke out were treated so inhumanely under their Japanese captors Both books are truly eye openers about the war in the Pacific that so little is heard about These books contain very graphic and disturbing scenes that while fiction are based on true facts If you are a fan of historical fiction you won’t want to miss either of these books
