Product Description

Review

"I encourage everyone to read this deeply moving and very important book" (Angelina Jolie)

"What could easily be a tale of despair and defeat becomes, through simple and poweful prose, a celebration of courage and humanity" (The Times)

"A rich narrative that explores the ravages of war and strength of family bonds . . . far too relevant to our own time" (Amnesty International)

"Heart-rending and eloquent . . . A moving reminder of human resiliency and the power of family bonds" (Newsweek)

"Change the names of the characters, give them another country of origin, and this story of dislocation becomes a tragedy millions of immigrants have lived through but seldom talk about" (Washington Post)

Book Description

The second memoir by the author of the international bestseller First They Killed our Father

Format: Paperback
This is one of those books that at times are painful to read, and you can't help but appreciate the fact that we live in the UK. I read "first they killed my father" then this sequel, it is an uplifting story that you will remember for the rest of your life, a must read.

Part 2 of this amazing autobiography - you must read First They Killed Our Father to get the proper context.
The Cambodians are lovely people with astonishing resilience. This shows in first person terms what happens when evil is allowed to take hold. Some people in the West knew what was happening and yet we nothing to stop it. Such people should hang their heads in shame. Both books are books of hope shining out of complete desolation.
Next time a spoiled young brat gets to you just suggest they should read these books.

brilliant book but beware also buying Lucky Child by the same author thinking they are sequential. They are the same book published under different titles

A book that everyone should read no matter if you think it is fact or fiction. I believe it is fact. But perhaps thats because on my age.

This author is brilliant and this follow-on Book "After they killed our father," maintains the same fascination, force and motive that reveals what it takes to overcome evil, abject poverty, tyranny and the terrible loss of family members. In the end, personal love, determination, and courage prevail as true history is revealed. PLEASE, A NECESSARY READ.

A harrowing read that brings the reality of the war to life. Whilst being painful to read it is also amazing to hear of the fight and determination for survival that Luong and others demonstrated. They are the real heros of this atrocity as they seek to rebuild a country that could have been completely destroyed.

This book and the previous one gives some insight about what went on in Cambodia. I found it very honest and moving.
We have all benefited by Loung Ung writing this book I believe the world should be aware of what happened to the lovely peaceful people of this small country and hope that the evil that was Khmer Rouge never ever happens again.

Having recently visited the Killing Fields in Cambodia, this book was a must - it didn't disappoint. It was very heart wrenching.
