3.5 It is not as good as Chronicles of KK, which for me, still the best anthology by Fixi Read Lost in Putrajaya before and only gave it a 3 Looking forward to read Love in Penang next.
One word WOW caps lock intended for added emphasis As with all storybooks, I opened Hungry in Ipoh hoping to fall in love, and I have fallen head over heels with this book From the cover to the contents Just Wow.Hadi M Nor, editor of this book, opens the volume in a simple, unpretentious manner I believe that he did this because he knew he didn t need to oversell the book, that it would speak for itself.And so it did.For those of you who haven t bought and read this book, I urge you to do so The [...]
Interesting compilation of short stories of Ipoh combined in one book A mixture of bland standard stories and exciting and thrilling ones It has potential but sadly is restricted by language and cultural barriers note 3 pages in a language other than English and certain horrendous editing errors, making the regular reader extremely alienated as it seems like the book only catered to specific groups of people.The author should have considered catering to a wider audience out of Malaysia.

A great start with No Kick by Terence Toh, yucky but entertaining The Ultimate Indulgence by Tina Isaacs was super creepy n scary An Epi curious Affair by Julya Oui was my favouriteKudos to all the writers Job well done
Okay, am I even allowed to review this book I have no idea Just know that I may be a tad biased A tad But honestly, I really did enjoy this book I finished it in a day and there are a range of stories here, from the signature dark Fixi ones to some truly heartwarming shorts The book starts with a banger with Terence Toh s No Kick , which makes me balk just even thinking about it Then, you have Angeline Woon s horrifying ending that actually made me cringe and go WTF , in a good way But there s a [...]
Definitely some solid writing in here This book even made me take a trip to Ipoh worth it Stylistically, many of the writers in this anthology face the same issue over revelation that damages the ability of the stories to linger with the reader More than a few of the stories begin strong, show promising buildup, and then deflate because the authors don t leave enough ambiguity in the text But there were stunning passages in every story.Writers in the anthology who particularly impressed Atikah A [...]
Time for a review I like it I like this a lot along with Love in Penang , this is one of my favourites I liked pretty much all the stories in this collection, and it was nice to see a Fixi Novo collection where the noirish elements were toned down or subtle, but while still remaining gritty and full of bravado I especially liked No Kick, Joget Girl, Mastura s Air Lengkong Adventure, Mother s Manifesto, and Pau Babi etc, etcGenerally all the stories were great
chyneyee hungry in ipoh byI rated this book with 4 5 The stories involve various kinds of relationships with Ipoh as the main focus Most of the stories are quite interesting and I get to know about Ipoh which makes me wonder whether I should travel to Ipoh and explore each place mentioned in this novel.
This issue heavily dealt with the theme of insecurity Do Ipohites have an inferiority complex
Collection of short noir stories about Ipoh mix of cultures, traditions and above all food.Good read for anyone traveling through Malaysia
