The Naked Island

by Russell Braddon

A excellent & interesting read about the life of a Australian POW in Malaya during War World 2.
In the book the author talks about how he came to join the army, the battle of Malaya & all the way to the surrender of the Japanese in 1945.

The author also include satire about the incompetency of the British war administration before & during the invasion.
There are some Australian slang used occasionally which might be a bit hard to understand but that does not detach from the story's plot or pace of reading.

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem. As our Author of the Day, McNabb chats about his love for the Middle East, why his books always deal with politics, democratic values and religion and reveals what music he listens to while writing.
