Full of honor, love, and revenge. It grabbed me from the beginning and held me to the very end.

Great read by Kien Nguyen. It's an historical novel based on the author's grandfather who was a tapestry weaver.

This story reminds me of the short tales told in the Amy Tan books, but this one encompasses the entire book. It is hard to know what is fact and what is fiction- it is all bigger than life. It is a wonderful remembrance of and to his grandfather.
I had never read any stories about Vietnam from that time period, seems it is a country that has not had many books about it. Nguyen is changing that. If you enjoy books about other cultures and time periods Nguyen's writings are for you.

Tragic in a Vietnamese fable way, but believeable and moving.
