I think what distracted me were the horrifying memories of the war. Otherwise, I think this was a well-crafted book despite the chaotic style. It really captured the main character's thought process, which was oddly beautiful despite the madness and depression. The book itself I think is hard to describe because of Ninh's approach to the story although the summary is straight forward. I would recommend this book to experience a unique voice.
