Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Whilst I know of the Cambodia Revolution and know a basic grasp of what happened, I'd never actually read about it in detail. I was visiting Cambodia whilst on holiday recently and before I went this book was on Vine. I thoroughly enjoyed the read.
The author grew up in the killing fields and so the book is written by someone who experienced this. The book is written from the view point of a well off young girl and the book begins just as the revolution starts happening. I was hooked all the way through and I was appalled. As a result I read more into what happened during the Revolution and so when I visited Cambodia I had a much better understanding of what the country had been through.
A highly recommended read.
