5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing 18 Jan 2013
By R. Slee
This is an astonishing book. The first few chapters set the scene - life in 1970s Cambodia as a youth. Then it turns to a living hell. A real page turner but especially shocking for me because I read this while an undergraduate living in Oxford in the late 80s and the final pages say that Someth May is now living in Oxford and studying at the city's College of Further Education! I could have passed this chap in the street and never known!

4.0 out of 5 stars The whole Cambodian tragedy exposed 11 Feb 2010
Out of all the "Year Zero" books that have resulted from personal experiences of the Cambodian tragedy, I found this the best written. The author gently explores the society he lived in and how disaster came down and destroyed so much of Cambodia's special heritage. Millions died - educated people especially marked for elimination. It is a must-read before visiting this land, especially now that it has become a mainstream tourist destination - so that the people's recovery can be marvelled at and the horror so near still, never forgotten.
