Overview

The end begins with an unprecedented viral outbreak:
Morningstar. The infected are subject to delirium, fever, violent behavior . . . and a one hundred percent mortality rate.

But the end is only the beginning:
The victims return from death to walk the earth. When a massive military operation fails to contain the plague of the living dead, it escalates into a worldwide pandemic.

Now, a single law of nature dominates the global landscape:
Live or die, kill or be killed. On one side of the world, thousands of miles from home, a battle-hardened general surveys the remnants of his command: a young medic, a veteran photographer, a brash private, and dozens of refugees — all are his responsibility. While in the United States, an army colonel discovers the darker side of Morningstar and collaborates with a well-known journalist to leak the information to the public. . . .

This novel was recommended to me and I thought I would continue the favor. This is a fast, easy read, told by the perspective of a little girl who lived through the Cambodian Civil War and the Khmer Rouge. I didn't know much about this time in Cambodia and the narrative is written so well you feel like you are there. Throughout the novel there are many references to Cambodia stories/poems that paint a beautiful picture of Cambodian culture. I would recommend this and I am glad to have read it.

One of the best books I've read in a long time. The character and story stayed with me long after reading the book. This is one of those books you wish didn't end.

A beautifully written book, each word to be savored.It lets the reader see into a world that is hard to fathom, beautiful but heart breaking. I did not want this book to end.

The book introduces the reader to the class distinctions in what was Cambodia and also the character of the peaceful masses. The revolution was frightening even to the reader. I can see why the narrator wanted to write to honor her parents and family.

Such a dark time yet the writing is almost poetical. Quite a story told to the reader.

I realize the author spent alot of time and effort, however, as an historical account of Cambodia's Kymer Rouge period, it leaves the horror out in this emotional second hand story from an eight year old's perspective. Recommended for young people, as the bloody parts are absent and only hinted.

Always knew the history of Cambodia and the Khemer Rouge was sad but the story of this family was so amazing. I could not stop reading and even though I knew this was fiction I felt as though it was happening right in front of me. Beautifully written.

I was expecting this book to leave me depressed, but it didn't. The writer's style and storytelling was excellent, and she had quite a story to tell. She somehow used the very bad, very sad experiences of her life to illustrate the good in humanity. I am in awe of anyone who can live through such horrible things and still have a positive outlook on life and people. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to learn more about this period in Cambodia or who enjoys a good story.
