The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen

symp

I loved this novel’s writing, but I have to admit that the story lagged for me. I think it’s because I know very little about the Vietnam War. I wish I had given myself a history refresher before diving into this book. However, I’m still compelled to research after the fact. And Nguyen’s comparisons and metaphors will stick with me – some really incredible writing.
