    PDF Anthony Burgess ↠ PDF The Malayan Trilogy Kindle ´ The Malayan Kindle - ↠ pb reisen gewusst wie.de malayan ebok, trilogy book, The Malayan epub, The Malayan Trilogy EpubThose measly two stars don't mean that I didn't enjoy reading this I did rather It's just that I find that the novel undermines its own intent The novel's dislike of racism is apparent and Burgess skewers it in all its forms the colonisers' contempt for the colonised and vice versa the various inter ethnic hatreds among the Malayans the overweening love of certain Malayans for their colonisers This makes for much hilarity Burgess said of Malaya that it was “the most remarkable multi racial society in the world” And he certainly covers that vibrant mixing of the different ethnic groups with relish Here he describes the difficulties of grafting an English house system in multi ethnic Malayan societyThe difficulties of organising a house system in a school of this kind had been partly solved through weak compromise At first it had been proposed to call the houses after major prophets – Nabi Adam Nabi Idris Nabi Isa Nabi Mohammed – but everyone except the Muslims p

    PDF Anthony Burgess ↠ PDF The Malayan Trilogy Kindle ´ The Malayan Kindle - ↠ pb reisen gewusst wie.de malayan ebok, trilogy book, The Malayan epub, The Malayan Trilogy EpubI've avoided posting a review of this for a few days because I'm having trouble distancing myself from the fact that it's about Malaya the old name for most of Malaysia a Malaya I know and love from my parents' stories and that to my knowledge hasn't been written about this wisely anywhere else It's not that this trilogy is perfect; like many of my favourite books it's messy rambling and slightly random at times the third book is probably the weakest of the three repetitive and veering too close to caricature But to my mind the whole thing than makes up for it The language is so very rich and sharp full of obscure but oddly perfect precise words At its best it's as good as Waugh at his best For the most part the satire is less slapstick than Waugh but there's still a good bit of cruel humour And what I most admire about this
