    Unrest talks about the life of 4 friends from their early life in Singapore rebelling against colonialism and their later encounters in midlife It mixes politics with the sexual lives of the protagonists both taboo topics approached with a clear voice devoid of the romanticism of either love or idealism It was a difficult read with many backs and forths in the story line each peeling away another layer of the same events in the characters' lives It was also made difficult by the writer's style playing the omnipotent narrator at times then writing from the perspective of a character then addressing the reader directly An interesting style but to me it had the effect of breaking the spell when you were really getting into the story Still an enjoyable read overall and a great take on the choices we make in life the relationships we build and what remains in your memory after several years have passed
