DNF at 50% — I really, really wanted to like this book but I just didn’t. I didn’t like the author’s writing style AT ALL. It makes it harder to get through.

The memoir of teenager Mae Taing and his Chinese-Cambodian family when the Khmer Rouge turn against their own people and take over Cambodia. This civil war was a heartbreaking event that occurred in my lifetime. It’s difficult to believe the amount of cruelty endured by the people of Cambodia as they struggled to survive the horrors of famine, rape, imprisonment, and genocide occurring in the 1970s. Yet these brave people never gave up and continued to fight to overcome the atrocities in the hope of a better life.… (lisätietoja)

I have always heard about the Cambodian Genocide, but this book really brought it to life. The first hand account of a Chinese-Cambodian family fleeing from the Khmer Rouge showed what terrible things we do to each other as well as a person's ability to keep hope when there seemingly is no reason to.

Review: Under the Naga Tail by Mae Bunseng Taing with James Taing
4* 03/08/2023

This is an Early Reviewer's book. I had heard stories about Cambodia but this is the first time I have read about a family and many others who had escaped from Cambodia's genocidal regime. After reading this book I can say people did not escape the cruelty, torture, and death. I had a hard time reading what these people went through. I am glad I read the book. I don't want to compare it with the Holocaust which I read so many stories about, however both incidences the people went through hell. How can so many humans be so horrible and brutal?

The crimes and punishment these people went through were inhuman and I felt their pain so strongly but I couldn't help them and I wanted to. I'm glad some had a family member with them, but that didn't take away the torture and pain. I wish I would have read something about Cambodia a long time ago.
