5.0 out of 5 stars
It's been stuck in my mind for weeks, 7 Oct. 2010
It is simply brilliant book not only full of sadness and cruelty, but also containing many facts and primarily a dramatic life story. I have already read couple of books on Cambodia and this one has capably combined historical facts with autobiographic moments (being prevalent), so that it brings really live image of the situation in Cambodia in 1970's.
It's been couple of weeks since I finished this book. I tried to start to read another one few days later, but until today I have not been able to get into it, because my mind still runs back to Haing Ngor's story.
