The Curse - setting: Describe the physical setting of the novel...

The novel that I learnt in Form Five is ‘The Curse’ written by Lee Su Ann. There are many places or settings involved in this novel but today I am going to write about the physical setting of the novel.

There are two main physical settings in this novel. The story started  with the setting in London when we were introduced to the main character, Azreen Saleh. Basically, the readers are introduced to the university college where Azreen was pursuing an undergraduate course. The readers are given more information that Azreen was going to sit for her exams soon but she had to fly back to Malaysia due to her sister, Madhuri’s death.

Next, we are brought to experience the life of the university college when Azreen had to walk through the college’s residential hall. Here, Azreen’s thoughts flew back when she recalled her two years of student experiences. She had many sweet experiences in her life as a student. She also met many new friends of various races here and she was reluctant to go back to Malaysia even for a while.

The second physical setting is when we are taken to KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport). Here, Azreen had to wait for two hours before she could board  a connecting flight to Pulau Langkawi, her hometown. When Azreen was recalling her old times with her sister, Madhuri, the readers are brought to Langkawi International Airport. Azreen meets her foster parents, Datin Sharifah and Datuk Zulkifli who came to receive her at the airport.

Last but not least, we are brought together with Azreen to Pulau Langkawi and a little village. In this beautiful, small village, we are introduced to Azreen’s home where she had  bitter  sweet memories for Azreen when she remembers about her sister. Next, the village itself was the place where all the drama takes place, both in the past and present.

From my explanation above, it is proven that the physical setting of the novel varies and creates an enthusiastic feeling when we read the novel. From London to Pulau Langkawi is what the whole novel is about.
