Item Description...
This is not just a dry recital of history. This story is told from a different angle, as the author recounts her youthful memoirs during the Japanese invasion of Southeast Asia between 1940 and 1945. This story moves to a deeper personal level, as one family attempts to live a traditional French life in the tropics while dealing with the horror and destruction of war in their private lives.

Beautiful Historical Viewpoint  May 6, 2007
I enjoyed this book very much. Laurette writes from a wonderful perspective and really makes you feel as if you know what it is like to be a child growing up during this war time and place. She keeps you interested and turning pages by drawing you into the relationships between her family and friends. She has an amazing recollection of her youth. Fascinating book that I would recommend to anyone. I do hope to hear more from this author in the future. :)
Moving and flawless  Jun 30, 2006
I found Saigon is Burning to be a constant invitation into the world of 1930's Cochinchina. I enjoyed the authors recollection of her youth spent during wartime, without it really being all about the war. The individual stories of family members and how each one fell into a greater connection with the author. I was never bored, and found it to be thoughtful and funny. It provided me as the reader detailed orientation of how I may have felt if it had been me as a young child in that era. This is a defenite read for just about anyone.
