    1. I do not think anything I write as a review can do this book justice. Malaysians need to read it. Indubitably better as a historical textbook (with more recent events, too!) than what I had to digest for my SPM History paper. Only the second book to have made my cry in public after Khaled Hosseini's Kite Runner. I think my command of the English language is sub-par compared to the author; my excuse is I was born in 1983 thus was/am impacted by the policies and current environment that deteriorat [...]


    2. Rehman Rashid memang seorang penulis dan tukang cerita yang baik. Memoir hidupnya diceritakan bersama sejarah tanahair. Terasa sangat menarik dibaca.


    3. Thanks to a long uninterrupted train ride, I finally had the pleasure of completing "Peninsular" by Rehman Rashid, a definite page-turner that I could not put down until I had flipped the final page.I found the text to be somewhat like a cross between a memoir and a history lesson. In one chapter he spoke about the Malay sultanates and that certainly brought back memories when I was deseparately trying to memorize Sejarah dates and famous figures. He also made me laugh and cry all within the spa [...]


    4. Jarang benar saya mendaulatkan lima bintang ke atas sesebuah buku bukan fiksyen; tetapi buku Rehman Rashid yang ini berhak ke atas keistimewaan tersebut; prosaik, padat, lucu, dan tajam, Peninsula ialah sebuah buku yang harus digolongkan sebagai Malaysiana dan dibaca oleh semua warga tanahair. Bahkan saya tidak ragu-ragu untuk mengatakan bahan-bahan penulisannya lebih memikat berbanding Karim Raslan dan Salleh Ben Joned (yang sebelum ini saya ikuti melalui Ceritalah dan As I Please).Autobiografi [...]


    5. The kind of book that makes you want to move to Kuala Kubu Bharu to either escape the degradation of the core (without having to physically remove oneself from the country, we have 'migration' for that), or live with the hope that maybe, from out in the fringes will we be able affect change in the epicentre. Either way, KKB is a great place, just as Peninsula is a great book. Both are worth the trip.


    6. Haven't read A Malaysian Journey yet but there is a feeling that Peninsula is in many ways a more sombre and pensive take of all things Malaysia, if not just the Peninsular. This part memoir part analysis by the late Rehman Rashid seems to be shrouded by a sense of morbidty that preceded the author's untimely passing, with each chapter laden by an urgency of closure that they belie an enforced neatness that tapers Malaysia's richness, even if that's not the intention of the author. After all, he [...]


    7. Very well written with an interesting vocabulary, some of which have not been much used since the fifties, I'd wager! So, interesting about the history of Malaysia, mixed with the personal memoir. All made more interesting being read whilst in Penang. It does make me wonder about the future of the country, but then it is a young country and has time to make its future. If you want to know how Malaysia got to where it is now and have ideas about the future, read this.



    8. As always, Rehman writes from the heart, in concise, witty prose. Although reading A Malaysian Journey before reading this book will make it more rewarding, it is quite readable as an introduction to his works. This seems to be more personal than A Malaysian Journey, and to appreciate all it's nuances, it would be useful to know a bit about Malaysian geopolitics.



    9. Peninsula is a personal memoir amounting to a report on the generational changes Malaysia has undergone since Independence.Peninsula (RM50) is available at Silverfish Books.The book begins with a chapter on former PM Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who he feels has opened up the sphere of discourse in this country, among other things, until his tenure ended. We learn how Rehman was fired from his job and how Pak Lah gave him another. We also get a bit about Rehman’s youth and his time in Bermuda and Ne [...]


    10. This may not be an objective rating, but it reflects the emotional reaction I had while reading the book, due in no small part to being Malaysian. A short journey through Malaysia’s past to present, examining politics and nation-building across generations, against the perennial backdrop of the rich diversity that makes up Malaysians. Here we are now continuing to grow “as delicately as possible around the wound that would not close”, to borrow from Rehman Rashid. Perhaps it is difficult b [...]


    11. I enjoyed the last two chapters. A good writer.For those who have never paid much attention to whats going on in the country could probably read this.


    12. This book is beautifully written by someone I would identified him to be as a MALAYSIAN. He brings you back to the past as well as the current state affairs.


    13. A delightful and engaging book, something that I would pick up again and again to remind myself of certain aspects of Malaysian life, society and past events.
