Whatchamacallit 143: The Rainbow Troops

The Rainbow Troops

I acquired my copy of The Rainbow Troops back in March 2013; I liked the book so much that I convinced my book blub to read it as the book for September 2014.

This might be the first book about Indonesia that I’ve ever read – and it was a pleasure to read it. Although I am not 100% certain how I came across the book, I suspect it was reviewed in The Economist.

It looks at the struggle that kids face to get a basic education in an environment where schools receive little, if any, funding.

It is, easily, among the top 100 books that I’ve read in my life – probably in the first quartile.

Rather than ruin it, I’ll just suggest you read it.


During the Covid-19 crisis, I am going to try and make a point of writing a blog post about an object in my home.

We’ll see how long this lasts.
