Best known for his academt award-winning role as Dith Pran in "The Killing Fields", for Haing Ngor his greatest performance was not in Hollywood but in the rice paddies and labour camps of war-torn Cambodia. Here, in his memoir of life under the Khmer Rouge, is a searing account of a country's descent into hell. His was a world of war slaves and execution squads, of senseless brutality and mind-numbing torture; where families ceased to be and only a very special love could soar above the squalor, starvation and disease. An eyewitness account of the real killing fields by an extraordinary survivor, this book is a reminder of the horrors of war - and a testament to the enduring human spirit.… (mere)

!st book to ever get a 5 ! Loved this but not sure i should have done. Haing Ngor had such a dreadful early life but came through it bravely. Nothing but admiration. The film does it no justice whatsoever ( )

I think I can sum up the lessons of this book with a Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal cartoon.



For the first half or so, I thought I had a handle on it. I've read [b:Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China|1848|Wild Swans Three Daughters of China|Jung Chang|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1158959961s/1848.jpg|2969000], which details what the Chinese suffered through under Mao and the Cultural Revolution; since the Khmer Rouge borrowed a lot of ideas from Mao, this was a story I was familiar with.

Then it got bad.

When you've just read 200 pages of people being harnessed like oxen to ploughs and whipped on until they drop dead of starvation, and then the author feels the need to tell you that what's about to happen to him is so bad you may want to just skip this chapter altogether...no matter what you imagine might be coming, it's worse than that.

There are three segments Ngor warns about.

This book is fucking rough. ( )

This is the most interesting biography I have ever read. Very deep and Ngor's story is stranger than fiction. I liked the movie the "Killing Fields" and Ngor won an academy award for his performance, an even greater feat once you understand his journey through this book. Unfortunetly, Ngor was murdered (sadly ironicly) in Los Angeles for the locket that he wore with his deceased wife's picture in it (she was a victim of the violence in Cambodia). I highly recomend this book, coupled with watching the "Killing Fields." ( )

Excellent book. Disturbingly thrilling. Very sad to know it is a true story and that people had to endure these hardships. ( )
