    "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."

    "The diverse characters variation is an aspect that is ideal for me. This novel seems to solve it and improve upon the results. No harm in trying this sweet book for yourself!"

    "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. "

    "I bought this book for my teenage daughter who is very interested in graphic novels. She really enjoyed it. The illustrations are beautiful and the story is interesting though she did say it was a bit hard to follow at times."

    "This sounds as if it could be interesting...I would imagine it's more of a niche topic, but it certainly fits the description."

    "While a wonderful graphic novel I would make sure if purchased for a younger child that they are mature. The graphic novel deals with heavy subjects such as racism"

    "A great look into Chinese fables combined with a modern day story of a Chinese American little boy. Delightful, funny, and a very relate-able story for any kid, and even enjoyable for adults."
