A family saga that tells of the struggle, displacement and violence experienced by Vietnam’s last few generations. The story swept me along but by the end it felt a bit rushed, with so many dramatic events and characters to pack in. I had the same issue with Pachinko. The writing style was not especially memorable either. But an important and very moving and humanly impressive story, for sure.
