Everyone who has knowledge of the situation with the Vietnamese boat people, should read this book to understand what the Vietnamese people really went through during this tragic era. Those who were fortunate enough to make it out alive deserve our utmost admiration and respect. I was a teacher during these times and we had some young students who appeared overnight in our classrooms. We never really knew their stories due to the fact that they were learning a new language and could not share their experiences. Buy it and understand!!!!!!

Great read.
Not-the-Same
The author was a college student when the communists invaded Saigon and sent him to a reeducation camp. He was neither a politician nor a military man.
There he witnessed the cruelty of the wardens who starved, beat, and killed prisoners whenever they liked it. He was able to escape from the camp while accompanying an injured Viet Cong cadre to the hospital. He escaped to Thailand by boat and went on to graduate from Bennington College and Brown University after flipping burgers for some time.
This memoir describes the events from the time he was a highschooler in Vietnam until his enrollment at Bennington College. The resilience and courage of the author could only equal his academic success and his lyric prose.

This is a powerful story of survival and eventually escape from the jungle re-education camps of post-war Viet Nam.
See, perhaps for the first time, the untold side of this tragic piece of history. Huynh's prose is precise and poetic, at times transcending the brutal realism of the story in order to reach the spiritual core that held him together through his experience.
This is an important book for anyone who is interested in this time period, and more importantly, where we, the US and Viet Nam, will go from here.

There are not enough stars in the sky to award to this memoir. Beautiful is perhaps an odd word to apply to a harrowing yet uplifting ttale of endurance and courage, but beautiful it is. The writing is simple and magnificent, even exquisite at moments. A unique reading experience.
