  • A Town Like Alice

    Eight hundred women and children begin a 1,200-mile journey on foot across Japanese-occupied Malaya. At journey’s end, only 30 will still be alive. This is the story of one woman, of her ordeal, and of how she was saved by the sacrifice of an Australian soldier. It is a story of rare individual courage in the face of certain death, and hope in the face of despair.

    If you could sum up A Town Like Alice in three words, what would they be?

    I really enjoyed this book and was surprised that it was written long ago. A good book to listen to while children are in the car. Loved the Australian accents but some of the Aussie slang was very repetitive.

    From the author of the highly acclaimed A Fine Balance, comes a brilliantly evocative novel that confirms Mistry's reputation as one of the finest writers of our time. "As close to perfect as a novel can get," raves Booklist.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I loved his book "A Fine Balance". This one is not quite as good. This would be a good book to listen to with older children. Good moral story and you learn about the culture in India.

    I would recommend this book to the casual reader. A great first audible book. A Good "Beach" book. Not very taxing on the brain but it was enjoyable.
