This book is a collection of short reflections, observations, and ancedotes about Indonesia’s capital city, Jakarta. They provide a street-level view of the crowded, gritty, humid urban life of the world’s densest metropolitan jungle as seen through the eyes of an expatriate.
Unfortunately, said expatriate is a horrible writer…seriously…really bad. Virtually every paragraph had misspelled words, missing or inappropriate punctuation, or non-sensical grammar.
Most of the stories were interesting (if you could decipher the grammar), some were crude, many were bizzare, and all were informative.
When read through a missiological lens, there is much to chew on in this quick read.
But someone needs to send this in for a re-edit.
