Seeing the war in Vietnam from the other side..

Nguyen is a gifted writer who is able to let the reader understand what life was like for the Vietnamese during America's ill fated war against this small and troubled country. He tracks the life of Vietnamese citizens through the war and as they migrate to America where they are seen as 3rd class citizens and then in this case back to Vietnam, where they are not again ever accepted in their homeland. The writing is incredible... Loved the book.

a great read!

This was not an easy read but it was so worth it! The story is amazing and really makes you think about small details that happen to people and how we see others and see ourselves.

Witty and Real. Sooooooo Goooood!

The plot, characters, the WRITING! The symbolism and wit! The absolute realness!!!! I'll reread this for sure! A must must must read!
