This book is like a lot of the books that i have already read. It starts out with the protagonist have a perfect life and then something makes everything go horrably wrong and they spend the rest of the book trying to fix the main conflict. Its' setting fits right in with all the other random settings that the books have also, for example, this book takes place on a teak plantation in Burma and my last book was in a little town called Bordon Indiana. One of the similarities are the writting styles, haveing a first person or omnisient point of veiw. And like most of the books that I have read I am enjoying this book, it has kept me interested and wanting to see what will happen next.
