    Inhaltsangabe

    One of seven children of a high-ranking government official, Loung Ung lived a privileged life in the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh until the age of five. Then, in April 1975, Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge army stormed into the city, forcing Ung's family to flee and, eventually, to disperse. Loung was trained as a child soldier in a work camp for orphans, her siblings were sent to labor camps, and those who survived the horrors would not be reunited until the Khmer Rouge was destroyed. Harrowing yet hopeful, Loung's powerful story is an unforgettable account of a family shaken and shattered, yet miraculously sustained by courage and love in the face of unspeakable brutality.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Ung's memoir should serve as a reminder that some history is best not left just to historians but to those left standing when the terror ends." ( Booklist)

    The story of human survival

    Louung Ungs story about her family's life during the Khmer Rouge takeover is one of the most heart wrenching stories I've heard. The story is brutally honest and makes you feel the hope and despair that the family felt. In the story I am able to draw parallels to so many attrocities that have taken place in the world including the Taliban takeover still happening today. I never even learned about what happened in Cambodia and so this story shocked me in how terrible things were. Louungs parents were so strong in protecting their children. The telling of this story is so well done and the viewpoint from a child, forced to grow old at such a young age, really emphasizes what happened.

    The best I have ever heard

    This book took me into an unknown world, and suddenly I was in the middle of it.I felt as if I was part of Loung's family and I feared and rejoiced with her. A terrifically written autiobiography and the best I have heard/read. I wish her other books is available in audiobooks too..............
