Read full description of the books An Insular Possession:As a foreigner living in Hong Kong, I was excited to read a book that takes you to the days the Brits have set foot on Hong Kong island for the first time. Alas, that happened about 10 pages before the book ended.
Somehow I got very little new information or perspectives. That said, half way through the book the details of the military actions started to appear. I soon started skipping these, as I, the girl that I am, found it unbearable to be reading about ships' maneuvering, guns reloading, soldiers in formation.
The book is written as consisting of fragments of correspondence and newspaper articles intercepting the prose. This gives Possessions a nice factual feel, but makes a stumbly read. The reading is complicated further by the language. The language of the 19th century is adopted, which is great fun ones you get into it. IF you get into it.
The plot - incoherent. A love story, which falls off the pages as unexpectedly as it appears. Most of the plot has to be deduced, pieced together from the flying around exerts.
Very satisfying last paragraphs though and I'm a sucker for an elegant ending.
