    Gone Case eBook Ì Paperback gone book, case mobile, Gone Case MOBILocal fiction has always held a special spot for me especially for books like Gone Case Set in the 1990s it follows 12 year old Yong as he navigates the death of his grandmother his parent's failing marriage and his studies as well The special thing about books like these is how familiar their surroundings are Elements of Yong's childhood are so familiar to mine and it is an extremely rare experience for me to enjoy something like that In a way it is a cheap thrill and I can really see the importance of having local fiction to motivate budding writers into taking the plunge and looking at writing as a careerBesides the local aspect of this book at its most basic it is a simple story of growing up Gone Case appears to simply follow a year in Yong's life without much of a main plot or storyline to direct it Minor subplots come and go and then disappear It has the essence of daily living in a way where nothing is really too permanent It makes f

    Gone Case eBook Ì Paperback gone book, case mobile, Gone Case MOBIA very realistic portrayal of how life in the past in Singapore It deals with life events in a very realistic manner touching upon essential details that stir up memories of my own As I read this book I look back and recognise how certain issues are certainly uniue to Singapore such as how funerals are carried out the open display of religions the pressure of studying gang fights though I've never experienced one PSLE transit

    Gone Case eBook Ì Paperback gone book, case mobile, Gone Case MOBIOne thing I love about local books is that they can be very relatable given their Singaporean setting Gone Case is one such bookIn this book Dave Chua writes a raw and touching story of Singapore in the 1990s through the eyes of Yong a 12 year old I must say his descriptions of living in an HDB flat is mostly accurate and it reminded me of my own experiences when I was youngI remember watching the telemovie for this book on the television and I’m surprised how much I still recall while reading the story The scenes although simple and uncomplicated are memorable and they leave a lasting impression It’s these type of stories that I enjoy reading because they aren’t exaggerated but realistic I wouldn’t be surprised if any of the experiences in the story come from the author’s real lifeBooks with HDB flats as the setting are uite rare and I am deeply than

    Gone Case eBook Ì Paperback gone book, case mobile, Gone Case MOBIWhile the book has a bitter sweet end that does have an aftertaste I found the narrative arc not as compelling as I expected Because the story unfolds through the observations of the protagonist who does not influence the plot every much I feel rather disengaged as a reader Perhaps there could be development of the supporting characters Liang and Zhen as victims of their circumstances for the pathos to be evocative
