Another book review this week for you! I read this book along with some of the student's at the high school I am currently working at. They are part of an IB program which is a high level, advanced placement class.
This book was absolutely beautiful. I can't believe how wonderful it was. It had a sort of poetic fluidity to it that really made you stop and think. I also found that there was a lot of deeper content to it that really made you do some great brain work. The setting is in a small village in Vietnam as well as the city of Hanoi and follows the journey of Hang, the main character. Hang is a female caught between two extremes, in fact in the novel you will find extremes are a constant and almost like their own characters. It's one of the most interesting books I've ever read since it doesn't follow a traditional fiction novel but I HIGHLY recommend it because it was fabulous!
You guys gave me some great suggestions last week that I'm going to be digging into! Thank you and keep 'em coming! Reading fast is a blessing and challenge since I can bust through books and am forced back into reality faster. lol.
