Impossible to put down...

Impossible to put down...

Loung Ung wrote her entire miserable experience in an attempt to fully heal herself from the overwhelming and amazing loss of the lives of her loved ones, her neighbours and friends, and effectively her entire world.

This is a very heavy book to read and reminds one once again the absolute blessings that so many of us receive and rarely appreciate. It would be advised to read "The Killing Fields First", maybe see the movie as well first, to get some sort of understanding of the compassion required of the author for her account.

I believe her healing is real and a concrete example of the occasional triumph of the human spirit, for the benefit of all.
