About the book:
Set in Tonkin (now northern Vietnam) at the turn of the 20th century, Flesh tells the story of a boy who witnesses the execution, by beheading, of his father, a notorious bandit, and sets out to recover his father’s head, and then find the man who betrayed his father to the authorities. A coming-of-age story of brutal self-awakening and also a tender love story, Flesh takes the reader into places, both dark and wonderful, in the human condition where allies are not always your friends, true love hurts, and your worst enemy can bring you the most solace.
This novel is very different from what I normally read. When I received the invitation to review this book I was really worried that I wouldn't be able to finish it. Boy oh boy, was I wrong!! Even though this novel is a little outside my comfort zone, I am really glad I gave it a chance. The writing is excellent. The story is very gripping. Khanh Ha really knows how to grab your heart and not let go. I was very pleased with the author's writing ability as well as the story he told. I would definitely say this is a must read.
