Then you can start reading Kindle books on your smartphone, tablet, or computer - no Kindle device required. But there again I also read High Rise, Super Cannes and Cocaine Nights three times in the first year I had these books. 4.5 stars. by PANTHER Granada Publishing. Incredibly well written and engrossing. Empire of The Sun is not only his best novel but goes a long way to explain the author's somewhat schizoid style of writing.
The film and book left me with a deep melancholy.
The Japanese were a lot more civilized than the Nazi's. Please try again. I cannot think of one negative about this book, well written, characters that are well developed with emotion, very interesting storyline, a good flowing story that is easy to follow, (I intend not to put any spoilers in this review). it is a story of survival and resilience in harsh conditions and being exposed to many things that would be hard for most people to cope with. It is not a book for the faint-hearted as it is explicit and gory. The book has been described as the best British novel about the Second World War, and I think with some justification. Hmm, three or four stars? This book provides an interesting angle on WWII from the viewpoint of a young boy living the good life in pre-war Shanghai and then kept by the Japanese for three years in a camp for enemy citizens. It's all he has to help him survive in this war. I still prefer the story in the film, even though only elements of it are close to the truth, it is just a story. Empire du Soleil c'est une aventure formidable, cette histoire-nouvelle de JG Ballard, basée sur ses memoires de Shanghai comme un jeune homme imprisonné pour les japonais au cours de la deuxième guerre mondiale. You're listening to a sample of the Audible audio edition. &, although I haven’t read all his work (though MOST I have), I can safely say.
Reviewed in the United States on March 12, 2014. The content is quite stark, there are a few oblique references to sex between the prisoners and the descriptions of the living conditions in camp are, Empire of the Sun (Empire of the Sun, #1). The Atrocity Exhibition (Flamingo Modern Classics), Miracles of Life: Shanghai to Shepperton, An Autobiography, "An outstanding novel...a classic adventure story. Some parts seemed a bit more drawn out than necessary, but still a fantastic story about Ballard's experiences (and about war and survival)!
It's the final period, the days following the Japanese surrender where the book explores the chaos that breaks out that is special.
