The book recounts his experience with the Japanese who occupied Singapore from 1942-1945.
The book is about that everyone thought that all the Japanese who occupied Singapore were bad hearted and cruel, but several Japanese officers were kind and even protected the author, who was ten at that time.
The events that the author experienced made him realize that if someone were to judge people, he or she must not judge the book from its cover.
After reading the book, I feel that although most Japanese soldiers were bad and cruel, some of them were kind and friendly. It shows that in life, we some not judge a person only from his/her weaknesses. This book also tells us how the people suffered during the Japanese occupation.
After reading this book, I feel that not all Japanese soldiers were harsh and bad as we always thought. In fact, there were some good Japanese soldiers and officials in the army. I believed that when the Japanese officers gave harsh punishments to the soldiers, they could be venting their anger on the people in Singapore at that time, it shows that the soldiers were very bad and cruel.
