Kim Echlin uses an unique and beautiful writing style, one that takes you through the narrative in memories and wisps, rather than holding your hand. Her use of hindsight, in small clues, is well done. I read this after finishing Sarah's Key, and the plot and message struck me as very similar; as a reader you feel jarred with historical information that you should have been more aware of. Echlin's portrayal of the main characters is interesting, as you don't get a huge sense of them outside of their great love, and it works.

This book was beautifully written with almost a poetic style. The characters are real and you cannot help but have empathy for their lives and what they deal with. I'm old enough to remember the slaughter in Cambodia after the VietNam war and if graphic violence is something you don't want to read, then I would not recommend this story. Making it even more difficult, is that you know the violence is not pretend and just part of the story. These terrible things happened to real people. Despite this, I think the love story remains the main focus and it was such a lovely story, I plowed thru the violence. In fairness to the author, given the time in history that this story took place, there is no way the violence could have been left out.

The person I gave this book to as a gift thoroughly enjoyed it - read it in one afternoon!

I found this book difficult to get into, even though the overarching premise was interesting. I appreciated the author's writing style, but did not feel at all attached to the main character. I do think this book would lead to interesting book club discussions, as well as character dissections.

I ENJOYED THIS BOOK, KEPT ME INTERESTED. I DO NOT KNOW MUCH ABOUT THE CAMBODIAN PEOPLE OR WHAT HAPPENED DURING THAT WAR, THE EFFECTS ON ITS PEOPLE LIKE ALL WARS IS VERY SAD. THE MORE WE KNOW THE BETTER WE UNDERSTAND.
