To long though
Loung ung did a phenomenal job writing this book and putting into words her awful experience through the Cambodian genocide. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who needs touching up on this gruesome period in history.
It's hard to "review" a book like this; the author's ability to retro her experiences in her own childhood narration highlights how harrowing her experience was. The confusion and loss. It's very hard hitting and difficult to accept at times, and at times angering, that such horrible things could happen. It's also inspiring to see her come through it all. Very moving.
Leftovers left no ending
Enriching! Her story really instilled both optimism and courage.
The author makes you feel like you are right there with her. Some very sad parts but throughout the whole book, I found myself pushing for her and her family. A true story of how a little girl survived it through the Cambodian genocide.
