Rated 5 out of 5 by from Want it This is by far the best memoir that I've ever read. There is a feeling that makes it seem that there's a story behind a story behind that main story. It describes everything and when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING, even things that u wouldn't think of. This book is so compelling that when I got bored, I just picked it up because it gets so suspensful after every single page!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most wanted The unwanted is a compelling story that retells the events that happened when the communists took over Saigon. It is wonderful it is very powerfull and to read what another has experienced in life is truly amazing. This book took my breath away and I could not put it down.I highly recommend this book to anyone that is interested in Vietnamise history or just history for that matter.
