    " I just really, really like pho. The agonizingly detailed descriptions kept me (more like my stomach) intrigued until around page 200, when I finally had some really good pho myself. After that I didn't really have any desire to finish the book. "

    " As a historical fiction goes, it was pretty good. Captivating as it sheds light on new details of Vietnamese life during and after the war. The stitching together of time and generations was quite good. The sexual references weren't necessary (I am never sure why authors feel these are required.) and honestly would have been better without them. I think the way of the Vietnamese people really comes to light - and it shows particularly the humility that some cultures never gain. "

    " Interesting story revolving around the dialectic between Vietnam just after the war under Ho Chi Minh and present day. "
