My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

According to Wikipedia Amok “also spelled amuk, from the Malay meaning “mad with uncontrollable rage”) is a term that is used for a sudden outburst, usually aggressive or violent, and is preceded by a dissociative episode of brooding over some perceived wrong towards a person or object.”

 

The plot revolves describes the instantaneous and violent passion of a German doctor working in a Dutch colony in Asia, by a beautiful English woman who asks for his help in a very special moment.

 

The sudden feeling and desperate race behind a solution to the problem of young woman determines a dramatic storyline. This story is told by the doctor to the narrator during a transoceanic trip.

 

A movie was made based on this book: Amok (1944).
