Good insights into Eastern Indonesia 30 juillet 2014
Par Sean - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The book does provides some interesting insights into Eastern Indonesia which is very rarely written about. I find the absolutes a bit simplistic - example shallow rich ('air-kissing') Jakartas versus poor earnest villagers (read the real Indonesian). Also the 'old' Jakarta has not disappeared at all, although the number and range of street sellers have definitely declined as mini markets and malls proliferate. Ms Pisani is heavy on adjectives which does bring to life the country in all its senses, but sometimes she tries a little too hard. 'A Moulin Rouge of flayed buffalo legs' is just plain silly. Also as a long term Jakarta resident, I note some inaccuracies. Page 29 - refers to the extortion of hotel guests to get them out of flooded waters in laundry bins. That is unfair. I was there on that fateful Saturday morning when an adjacent reservoir overflowed and flooded the then Regent Hotel (now Four Seasons). The hotel staff were fantastic, and I did not witness any attempts to extort the guests...

Magnesium flashes of extreme violence 11 août 2014
Par H. Schneider - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A gutsy and witty travel book written by an English woman, a former journalist and public health worker.
She travels through the backwoods and centers of Indonesia. Years of inside knowledge, personal contacts, language skills, historical, social, and political insights go into the narrative. Memories from earlier trips add a time axis to the trip.

I recommend the book. The agenda is determined by a healthy skepticism against religions and politicians, by a commitment to conservation causes, and by sympathies for the underdogs. I assume the book is most valuable to people who have some knowledge of Indonesia. It is not an introduction for novices.

For the question that moves most people (which role will political Islam play in the future of the country?), the book gives information that can improve our understanding. The author is not an alarmist, but she is not crazy enough to deal in prophecies. On key environmental issues like deforestation, she is not optimistic.
Many chapters about different parts of the country touch the subject of past outbreaks of violence, be it between religious or ethnic groups, or the big outbreak of murder lust in the 1960s. A subject with many explanations, but beyond comprehension.

Par John A - Publié sur

This is really a fabulous book, not to be missed by anyone who has visited Indonesia -- or anywhere else for that matter. I've never been, and now cannot wait to visit. But only if the author agrees to accompany me. My treat! I'm such a lousy tourist that I'm sure I'd be better off reading this book rather than heading out as she did, via rickety boat and motorbike.

Elizabeth Pisani is an incredible guide, enough outside of the myriad cultures of Indonesia to observe clearly, but obviously deeply in love with what she calls her "bad boyfriend." I would travel with her anytime, anywhere. She is also an excellent writer; every page was a joy, like wandering a great city and just letting your feet take you to places of surprise and delight.

I've been all over the world, and spend about half of every year in Asia and Africa at this point. Due to my work, I spend far too much time in 3-star hotels, boring restaurants and official meeting rooms. Pisani reminds us that just a few steps outside of the circles navigated by tourists and business travelers exists a whole world of wonders. Reward yourself, and read this book.

Gifted Storyteller on a Great Adventure 11 juillet 2014
Par Mary Ellen O - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I loved this book! I knew nothing about Indonesia and after a few pages was completely hooked, racing to read more and learn more. Her travel throughout Indonesia is an incredible introduction to a a world far away. One really appreciates her ability to adapt and understand the diverse culture and its people and entertain while providing the reader with really insights on how to characterize this nation of many. I appreciated her sense of humor and felt as though I was traveling with her. Clearly it is not just her linguistic talent that enables her to belong in such varied circumstances. Her narrative style reminded me of that of Simon Winchester. Don't' miss this great read!

EXploding exploratiON! 4 juillet 2014
Par Gerald - Publié sur
Format: Relié
whimsical and wonderful, really tells a fine tale of Indonesia, her people, culture, food and fun. Intersting tidbits, solid stories and an excellent insightful view of this huge, wet, sprawling nation. Pisani has a story tellers gift and a researcher's clever and clear eye for detail. Good maps highlight the read, then ends, sadly, all too quickly.
