    1. I have mixed feelings about this one I read this as part of my book club and can t say that I ever would pick it up again On the positive side, being born in Bali it was quite interesting reading about Bali before tourism Village life is described in exquisite detail by Baum, as are all the customs and rites She s really captured the essence of the Balinese way of doing things, their sense of ethics My only problem was on the factual side, specifically how much of it was fact and how much was th [...]


    2. Great resource if you are wanting to know about the history of Bali I read a history book first which helped The writing style is a bit dated mid 1930 s but otherwise a compelling read.


    3. One of my Bahasa teacher s recommended this bookd while I was glad to get a book recommendationI would have liked to read something thrilling The story is fiction yet based on lettersally one is led to believe from the notes that the letters are from the author s friendship with Walter Spies None of that is really important is the story of a Balinese man at the beginning of the 20th centuryd every day life His yearning to take a second wife, his hope to become an important person in his village [...]


    4. Very good journey into old Bali Gets you into the mindset of how the Balinese think and feel Not a page turner but a great painting of a culture


    5. I randomly picked up this book at a second hand bookstore the binding was pretty and the description reminded me a little of the Pearl Buck novels I grew up reading I actually enjoyed this book a lot the story is well paced, the characters interesting and the historical context very compelling, in particular the climax with the battle scene.


    6. Entitled Love and Death in Bali in the version I read, and read while in Bali, it was a fabulous tale which explains a lot of about Balinese customs and beliefs The significance of their ceremonies was put into perspective and is a book I would recommend to travellers to Bali A


    7. Bali is soooooo damn interesting It is like in fairytales This is the real alf leila w leila Can t believe this novel was based on a true story and spending a month on this exotic island and mingling with the locals and experiencing parts of what I was reading in the novel and experiencing the culture firsthand was FREAKING AWESOME and mind blowing This was not your typical honeymoon trip to Bali, this was an adventure and like a cultural trip Bali will always have a special place in my heart.


    8. This is a must have for all travelers to Bali, as it gives a comprehensive overview of the customs and way of life of Balinese of various rank at the beginning of the XXth century The narrative is framed by 2 big set pieces, the shipwreck of a Chinese ship and the Dutch military expedition mounted a few years later in part to punish the Balinese peasants who looted the ship, and their rulers who refused to pay compensation Throughout Baum does an excellent job as a fair and dispassionate observe [...]


    9. Wow What a story Yes, it is written by a non native , but I have to say that the descriptions of the Balinese lifestyle were VERY detailed I would say that the only way this could be done is if the writer spent a considerable amount of time living on location.When reading this book, keep in mind that it was written in an age that was not as fast paced as the 21st century Also, I find it easier to read using the electronic version where I could enlarge the font size and line spacing Additionally, [...]


    10. Another book I had bought to read during my trip to Bali and one I immensely enjoyed Baum really got into the heads of the Balinese cast and makes their way of thinking accessible to the western reader Except for somewhat purposely bland Pak, I found the characters fascinating and very well written A fascinating insight into life on Bali at the turn of the 20th century, long before tourism, and the events leading up to the puputan mass suicide of the court of Bandung ahead of the Dutch invasion [...]


    11. Beautifully written historical fiction that intelligently explores the differing perspectives leading to the mass suicide of the Balinese I read this whilst I was in Bali which made the experience that much enriching.


    12. I read it in bali and that made the book a pure pleasure History, scenery and traditions all came to live I don t know if i would have enjoyed it in another context, since the style is somewhat outdated.
