    Tim Tran’s American Dreamer: How I Escaped Communist Vietnam and Built a Successful Life in America was quite the inspiring tale. I found this memoir to be captivating and engaging. I often wondered what it was like for someone to leave their family and their home country to pursue the American dream. I always thought that would be brave and courageous to leave everything behind like that. I enjoyed reading Tim’s story from American Dreamer: How I Escaped Communist Vietnam and Built a Successful Life in America. He did not have it as easy as he expected it would be. He struggled to fit in but he did eventually was able to find his way. I admired his spirit, determination, dedication and persistence. I loved reading the details of each place where he had been and lived. I found him to be quite the story teller, that made me want to keep reading to find out where his life would end up. I thought his tale to be so encouraging and moving. I was intrigued from start to finish and had no problem reading the whole book in one sitting. I am giving American Dreamer: How I Escaped Communist Vietnam and Built a Successful Life in America a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy to read inspirational and uplifting true stories. I thought this memoir was a great read. I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
