    Wow

    I've had this sitting in my library since it won the GG and I hate myself for not having read it sooner. It unfolded like a dream does. Beautiful.

    Disappointed

    Having heard about Ru through Canada Reads, my expectations were high. While the language and descriptions were evocative, overall the series of fragmented memories were disjointed, detached & unsatisfying.

    Ru ...

    This is the story of a girl's life in wartime Vietnam , her escape as one of the boat people, and her return as an adult. The disturbing life story is told almost as a fable, and is difficult to follow. At times the authour wanders away from the story line, but then regroups. The chapters are not chapters as much as page breaks and the form increases the strange methodology of this author wrting mehods. Yet there is an personal interesting story there.. from the Vietnam War to Canada ..the luck of survival.

    Geat read

    I enjoyed the first person acount of this story. I found it to be short but sweet, the writer was able to get her point across with out a lot of fluff but with enough detail I was able to imagen the people and places. Over all a great insite into another life.
