Terrifying and absorbing look at Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge. Really well done story of a family trying to keep together. Not a book for the faint of heart!

I have some Erik Larson catching up to do, because until I picked up Dead Wake, I'd only read Devil in the White City, which is high on my all time fave nonfiction books. There are a few others I definitely need to dig into, because Dead Wake is wond ...more

After racing through and loving Waters' The Paying Guest, I found The Night Watch slower and less engaging. The story is terrific and the device of moving backward in chunks of time (the novel begins in London post-WWII and then takes a step back int ...more
