    One thought on “Dust of Life”

    1. I would say this book is interesting even for a Vietnamese who did see or talk at least once in their life with such an Amerasan. There are not many works like this in general, and I rate 4* for the consequence of the book, probably leads to a lot more in-depth works in the same topic.At some point the book is so touched, somehow is bitter and elicit lots of thinking in me.

    2. An incredibly heart wrenching and generous book dedicated to the lesser known stories of the children America left behind.

    3. I think the book does what it wanted to do, engender sympathy for Vietnamese Amerasians. However as a book on the topic of Vietnamese Amerasians in general, an introduction, overview, analysis etc. I think it fails. I would regard it more as a supplemental book on the topic.Sure, what you read in it, is interesting for the most part, however it does have pretty strong anecdotal element. The general information on Amerasians is very short (btw. I wish that one woman who told me Vietnamese knew no [...]

    4. An academic work. Lots of cases. Interesting. No secret to success. Very difficult lives. Raises lots of questions. Good reference book.
