    4. I read the first two books by this author, the first of which tells of her horrific years of her childhood from ages 5 to 10 under the Khymer Rouge rule in Cambodia It is an extremely raw but powerful book told from the eyes of the child she was at that time The second book tells of her leaving for the US with her oldest brother as a refugee and parallel the life of her sister Chou who remained in Cambodia I was hesitant to read this book at first, thinking that it would just tell of a young gir [...]

I was curious to read Loung Ung s story about how she became an activist and how she came to write her first book, First They Killed My Father, in Lulu in the Sky A Daughter of Cambodia Find Love, Healing, and Double Happiness 2014 However, I have to admit the first third of the book about her time at Saint Michael s College and her crush on classmate Mark whom she eventually married was a bit of a chore to get through I thought it got interesting when she recalled her experiences working for a [...]

    9. Probably to many in the world, this patch of earth was just another village among many small, dusty villages And at first glance, like many small villages, it looked impoverished, crowded, and populated with thatched roof huts built on wooden stilts But if visitors were to stay, if they learned to navigate around half naked toddlers, squawking chickens, wandering pigs, and barking dogs to our psah, our outdoor market, and meet the people who called this place home, they would change their minds [...]

This is the final chapter in the story of a Cambodian woman who survived the terrible atrocities inflicted on the Cambodian people by the Khmer Rouge Neither her immigration to America, the end of the war itself or the death of Pol Pot were enough to heal the deep seated wounds caused by her war experiences and incredible losses However, the one thing that kept me from giving the book stars was the story itself her constant battle with her past and allowing herself to be loved by an incredibly [...]
