What the community says about American Born Chinese
- "I had a lot of fun with this, as far as graphic novels go this would be one of my top 5 for sure. The characters are really well put together and the story is so creative and unique to the characters that it will keep you entertained and wanting to keep reading. It seems to flow effortlessly and made me wish it was longer by the time I reached the end of it."
- "When I was in high school, I used to have a Chinese friend who always gets bullied in school. I remembered him while reading this book., But this one is unique since it tells the different personalities of different characters. Plus I learned that it's not very easy to be an immigrant especially if you're from Asia, there are so much stereotyping which this book also explores. The story makes sense."
- "I came from an immigrant family, and the stories of Americans and where they came from has always fascinated me, including my own. But frankly, American Born Chinese isn't a good entry in the genre. It's sadly just hung up on racial politics and thinks being an immigrant is far more unique than it is in a nation of immigrants. This book has nothing to say and takes a lot of time and pretentiousness to say it. Hard pass!"
- "This is a good point if you're into learning about different cultures. It's a good way to put yourself in the shoes of the life of someone that is Chinese-American and the struggles they had to go through growing up based on their heritage. "
