5.0 out of 5 stars
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was an harrowing ride, and a fascinating lens into the complex dynamic of the politics and power in Southeast Asia. Seen through the eyes of a modern media professional, the perspective was both personal and credible. Having spent a lot of time in Vietnam myself, I can say that the nuanced descriptions and dialogue rang true. I found the characters emotionally resonant, and the story extremely well researched, and captivating.
