    Book review: Son Complex, by Kris WilliamsonI always look forward to reading locally-published English fiction. Granted, a lot of them out there are bad, but there are also gems, brilliant in their own right. When Buku Fixi announced the launch of its English imprint, Fixi Novo, I was excited, ecstatic even.Fixi publishes pulp fiction, whose origin started in America in the late 1890s. Back then, short stories and serialized novels were published in magazines using paper made of pulp, making the [...]

    There is something entertaining about this book than just the main story line itself. It was Malaysia from Aaron’s perspective. His thoughts towards lifestyles and foods are some kind of interesting to read about.

    (ulasan ini diambil dari blog sendiri)Ada kenalanku beritahu yang aku harus segera habiskan baca mana-mana novel Fixi yang terbaru kerana dia hanya akan beli dan hadam novel tersebut berdasarkan ulasan dan usulanku. Son Complex karya Kris Williamson merupakan novel berbahasa Inggeris pertama terbitan FIXI di bawah imprint FIXI NOVO, diterbitkan bulan lepas dan merupakan novel yang paling pantas aku habiskan (aku selesai baca kurang dari tempoh 48 jam) setakat ini untuk tahun 2013.Membaca sinopsi [...]

    it's not that i don't like this book, it's just too plain for me. few times i fall asleep reading this. and i kinda took more times than i predicted to finish itere's no climax (or maybe there is, but like i said, it's too plain)i don't know what to expect when i read this. all i know is, it's not that enjoyable.

    Satu-satunya buku yang aku (mampu) habiskan ketika kesihatan dirampas seketika. Well, this is the answer for this space--(What did you think?)

    To some extent, I am pretty much convince that the author somehow knows how to speak Malay language. You can find many Malay phrases, written not in formal style but the way how Malaysian speak. Enough to make a Malay reader grin. Aren't you impress of that? Knowing that some of the Malaysian Chinese can't even form a proper Malay sentence verbally (My assumption) and just look at England, the migrants could speak proper English with an accent. Doesn't that bother you? Oh don't get me started wi [...]

    Son Complex by Kris Williamson is a fascinating read that got me thinking about a lot of things talked about in the book. It covers so many social issues relevant to Malaysia and does it seamlessly. The writing is very easy to understand and the story moves forward at a good speed. I like personal journey stories and found this to be a unique one that hasn't been done hundreds of times in movies and other novels. Kudos for originality!By the middle of the novel, it became obvious that this is a [...]

    Totally im not that satisfied reading this. But back to its title, Son Complex then i realized it was really2 complex. Pity to Aaron cus someone already accept him as his biological son. To the author, you should write something that give us satisfaction reading your book or at least let Aaron meet his father and claim him as his biological father and make a new happy family i guess. The last scene really makes me touch. That Datin called Aaron and told him abt her biggest secret. It means a lot [...]

    Kudos to the writer who is not Malaysian but has the effort writing up a story based in Malaysian from an American perspective. Its a mixed up but the shocking revealation towarda the end is something I'm not expecting. Everyone jas their past and not everyone's past is beautiful. I have seen the author when I bought the book at PBAKL. Weirdly I always imagined Aaron as him. Ha. Anyway, nice read.

    I like the KL travel story bits and the tourist in town's point of view. However, I think the character Nora is overly romanticized and unreal to the end. I also feel like I still didn't know Aaron, even after reading the whole book. Some of the other characters seem kind of stereotypical Malaysians too, Indian activist, Datuk politician, mat rempit,etc. I was let down by the 2 new elements 'suddenly squeezed in' to lead to the ending.

    I would say that this story is a bit different from other Fixi's novels but still it's fun to read and to know who's Aaron's father really is and to know what actually happened to Nora when she was in Malaysia and why she never tell him about it.The story was well told by the writer plus I love the cover so much.But the ending was a bit sad. Aaron should've not get rid of his memories when he was in Malaysia.

    Reading this book, I had the impression I was entering an unknown territory yet at the same time being told about people I have met in the pastI enjoyed certain passages while others proved to be a bit tedious and far-fetched.Still, I would recommend this book to avid readers of travelogues and auto-fiction mostly.

    I was looking forward to read this novel after reading Kris's short story on KL Noir:Red. Perhaps, I was looking forward to that sunken feeling hours after I am done with Son Complex.That Eureka moment, or perhaps-Eureka moment, why Datin suddenly seemed like taking a pity on Aaroon. And the phone call she made. Because Datin and Aaron's mother, had the same fate.

    How does it feels when your faith betrays you. Either you want to live in delusion or eat the ugly truth. Beautifully narrated despite initially i was hoping for any kongkek but none. However i still enjoy reading this.Selamat membaca

    so far I think the author managed to portrays the reality living of 'dato' and 'datin' in Malaysian contexteir lifestyles,their family secrets and stuffill,this is probably to early for me to judge whether this novel is worth to read or else.

    Is Sundari's brother had mental illness?

    At first I really like the plot of the story. But the ending was quite disappointing in my opinion.

    I think this book features a lot of sarcasms to Malaysian, especially the typical Malay drama's twisted twisted ending part. Well, I think it is.

    As I read it, it went on a direction I didn't expect it to go.

    Unerwartete Vertreibung wollte ich sagen.

    Soraya Anuwar
    Not my kind of book. Sundari is a bitch. The fact that Datin's father raped her is just ughhh dammit he's an Imam after all. I need to know who's the biological father of Aaron, at least

    What you think it is, is never really what you think it is. "In the dark, we are all equals." -Aaron
