  1.  A harrowing tale of unputdownable proportions 5 October, 2013 On
    I am an ardent student of history. However, I hate reading from text books, where history read and feels mundane. I'd heard of Japanese atrocities at Changi, but could never envision what conditions were like. Then my Dad told me to read this book.

    I've read everything by James Clavell, but this is clearly my favorite. The book is an exploration of POW camps, how atrocious the living conditions were and how atrociously the Japanese as captors were.

    What however I love is the author's exploration of human behavior itself. How it changes in circumstances, how it learns to deal with situations, and how it adopts to them. Read this till the end, and especially the epilogue because that is how any novel should end.

    Brilliant from start to finish and highly recommended
