    • Superación y esperanza en una vida mejor son las razones que justifican la toma de decisiones personales de la protagonista. Una mujer cuya tenacidad se ve favorecida por la fortuna.


    • I'm not sure what's going on, but I purchased this Kindle edition of 'A Town Like Alice' and Nevil Shute did not write whatever was delivered to my Kindle. The book has been a longtime favorite of mine, and this version is written like a child's text book. Very strange and disappointing. I'm going to try to find the real version so I suggest that if you want to buy the authentic version, order a sample first. If it does not begin in a British solicitor's office, you've got the wrong one.


    • I read this for the first time back when I was 14 or 15 and I have to say that it isn't as good as I remember it being. This book spanned the entire star rating for me at various points; I hated some bits and loved others.The story is broken down into two different sections.

The second half is ab [...]


    • TRASH--THIS IS NOT, REPEAT NOT!!!, THE NEVIL SHUTE BOOK. This should not be sold by .

THIS IS NOT THE NEVIL SHUTE NOVEL, THIS IS A TRAVES [...]


    • I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I was a little afraid to pick it up because I love On the Beach so much, and I knew that this was going to be a completely different type of novel.Different it was, but it was still incredibly well done. A Town Like Alice chronicles the experience of a woman taken prisoner by the Japanese in WWII-era Malaysia. This is the strongest section of the book and is made even more fascinating by the fact that it was based on a true story.Jean Paget is a formida [...]


    • I found this book to be a quick read. I am a slow reader, but I finished the Kindle Edition in about two hours. I ended up wondering if it was abridged, because I see that it is supposed to be 311 pages. The sentences were so simple and short, that it makes Hemingway's journalistic style look like Continental philosophy or scientific German, in comparison. The book reads like a story teller, verbally telling a story to sixth or seventh graders. I now notice that lists the target ages as fai [...]
