Reading Recommendations - Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be taking a trip to SE Asia next June and I am looking for some recommendations for books to read in anticipation of the trip. I've got the guidebook part covered, but I am looking for recommendations for fiction, memoirs, biographies and that sort of thing - basically books set in the areas we will be visiting. They can be fiction or non-fiction, historical, current, mysteries, memoirs, action and suspense, coming of age stories, family sagas... I am not much into romance or horror, but pretty much any other genre is fair game.

Singapore is our main destination and while we are there, we are planning to make some side trips to Indonesia and Malaysia. Also, on the way there or back (we live in California), we are planning to spend a few days in Tokyo.

Any recommendations are greatly appreciated :)
