    Twilight over Burma is than a story of a prince marrying a foreigner although it is that, too Sao, the ruling prince of a Shan state in Burma, meets Inge, an Austrian, while they are both studying in Colorado It s like a fairy tale when they fall in love, marry and leave for Burma Only when they are ready to disembark in Rangoon does he reveal his princely position The autobiography, told in third person by Inge, richly describes the royal life and Inge s adjustment to it as she learns the traditions of the Shan people The fairy tale life ends abruptly after ten years when a military coup installs a corrupt, evil regime Inge refuses to be cowed by the corrupt government after her husband is imprisoned and keeps trying to find where he is I m guessing the author uses the third person because several short chapters are about Sao and his conditions and experiences in prison She would have no way of knowing these details Tenacity lasting two years as Inge hopes and searches for answers about the fate of her prince shows her extreme daring and determination I would love reading a book about the rest of her life The once grand home in East Haw still stands today Just last week I read an article by a journalist who went there and found it The photo of the now sadly neglected home looked much like the photo in the book as it once was Fifty years of the repressive government have taken its toll on all of Burma just as it did on the family so beautifully described in Twilight over Burma.

    Ein solides Buch zur spannendes Lebensgeschichte von Inge Sargent Es lie sich gut lesen und war aufgrund des Schreibstil unterhaltsam, allerdings hatte dies auch einen Preis Die Geschichte trotz ihrer wahren Grundlage und der Tatsache, dass sie von der Protagonistin selbst geschrieben wurde wirkte unglaubw rdig Nat rlich machten der Erz hlstil als Roman und die Abschnitte aus der Sicht des Prinzen das Buch emotionaler, doch es verschleiert, wie wichtig es ist, diese Ungerechtigkeiten von damals ans Licht zu bringen Es zeichnet ein verweichlichtes Bild der Realit t und schw cht die H rte, die diese in diesem Fall hat te Au erdem macht es einem schwer, zwischen Fiktion und tats chlicher Geschichte zu unterscheiden Der Prinz wird z.B als utopischer Herrscher dargestellt Und auch wenn er ein guter Regent war, ist doch kein Politiker oder Prinz jemals perfekt und ich hatte Schwierigkeiten, sein wahres Leben von dem romantisierten Roman Leben zu differenzieren Dennoch war das Buch unterhaltsam und lehrreich, definitiv eine Bereicherung Au erdem kann man Inge Sargent nur aus tiefstem Herzen bewundern.

    Didn t enjoy the writing, felt dry and detached for such an emotional story The historical background is pretty interesting though, especially for someone who is interested in the region and it s background Felt like a text book or a briefing document though than an autobiography.

    Un libro che una biografia, ma che eccede la biografia, intrecciandosi ai sussulti della storia e nutrendosi dell espressione delicata del romanzo il merito tutto della protagonista e autrice Inge Thusandi, una ragazza austriaca che improvvisamente si scopre principessa shan e vive l intensit dell a per l ultimo regnante, restituendoci la dolcezza di una vita in un paese ricco di colori e profumi e il dramma della separazione imposta dal regime.

    Loved this book as a true story of life in Burma it helped me to understand some of the history of this country it is long, complex and not peaceful in any way For such a lovely country the people, the culture, and the sights of the countryside and people their history is truly not peaceful It is amazing what little power there is for anyone.

    Granted that the writing is not the best, but the content itself is interesting, and it serves a great medium in showing why the Shan and the Myanmar s military have conflicts A book that every Burmese should read.
