    "My wonderful husband knew I was waiting for this to come out and picked it up for my birthday last year at the end of March. Well I put it on the nightstand, and just did not get around to reading it until I finally had a vacation from work. A great mystery always pulls me in, and this one does not disappoint! Make sure you have plenty of time when you pick this up because you will not want to put it down!"

    "With heartrending and tender emotion, Viet Thanh Nguyen captures the struggles and hopes of an unforgettable array of immigrant and native characters of Vietnamese heritage. Each finely-crafted piece carries a subtle power and beauty in the dignity and quiet resilience of the characters as they face the hardships of loss, regret, failure, and alienation in either their home country or their adopted America"

    "What a letdown this book turned out to be. I was very much looking forward to the release and saw it was getting strong reviews. Elif Bautman is usually a very good story teller who manages to keep stories funny, engaging, and even a little historical. This book seemed to drag on and could have stronger editing and character development. "

    "I found the the book to actually be a little bit of a bore. I had not really known who the author was before but was recommended the book by others. I have to say I was disappointed. It wasn't really an engaging drama. I wouldn't recommend it to others."
