Yes yes I am very disappointed in my expectationOn the other hand it was an interesting book into the Brunei Chinese culture As my ancestry is Chinese I can relate to most of it though I'm not familiar with the funeral tradition but then again there are so many variations of it Jonathan's mother left a few months ago 'for health treatments' but it's been a long time since he's spoken to her and there seems to be a conspiracy

    Written in Black Kindle × Written inKindle - Ç MOBI cutabovebarberagencycouk written epub, black ebok, Written in epub, Written in Black PDFEPUBThis book is better than its summary It immediately looked like the best choice for Brunei but my impression directly from the summary was that it was going to be about a kid discovering adventure courage friendship and himself which pretty much perfectly sums up something I'd hate The protagonist Jonathan is precocious in a bad way and it makes the whole thing easier to swallow He really is annoying and obnoxious and it's not always brushed off as cute But OTOH his family problems are real and scary and confusing and they aren't just brushed off as obstacles to finding himself The adventures often suck the courage only comes in small doses the friend he makes is batshit cr
