"If you are reading this letter it could only mean that I'm dead and I suspect the circumstances of my death were less than natural," begins the letter from Simon to his dear friend Peter.

War With Pigeons:
Author: Tae Kim
Publisher: aStoryTelling, Inc.
ISBN# 978-0984435937

“Eloquent Style of Writing – Captivating Read”


“War With Pigeons,” by Tae Kim, is suspenseful, thrilling, and in my opinion – a piece of literary talent at its finest. Tae Kim introduces the reader to the Asian-American community so many of us (until now) have not been aware of. I think the author did an excellent job in describing the room salons in Midtown Manhattan, cafés, and clubs that the young Asian men freq

This was an odd book...first off, this was very Korean-centric. Almost to the point of offending or excluding any reader who is not Korean or Korean-American. The seemingly endless chapters on stand bars, room salons, the Korean class-system, the Koreans-abroad rich/cool kids, and lastly, the not-too flattering portrayal of Korean men and their, um, "gender superiority-complex" (sorry to create/add to any stereotypes, but yes it was very hard to read this book, as an Asian female, and feel much ...more

This is the author's first novel. It is a love story and a story of friends. The main character, Peter, finds out much more about his close childhood friend after his death when he starts reading Simon's notebook. Not only does it tell of his hardships during childhood, but it goes on to tell of his love for a woman, who Peter didn't even know about. The storyline goes back and forth between the past and the present and has both characters you will like and some you will despise.
