Reflection. Like a birder adding a new sighting to one’s list, I decided that since I’ve not read any Vietnamese novels, I should try out a popular one titled, Ticket to Childhood, by Nguyen Nhat Anh. I read this novel in a single sitting, and enjoyed the nature of the reflection: finding a way to cross the chasm from adulthood back to childhood. I found the introspective narrator interesting and the reflections poignant. If any of that sounds intriguing to you, read a sample before leaping in.
Rating: Three-star (It’s ok)
