Bill Gates (CEO/Microsoft)Most of the books I’ve read and movies I’ve seen about the Vietnam War focused on the American perspective. Nguyen’s award-winning novel offers much-needed insight into what it was like to be Vietnamese and caught between both sides. Despite how dark it is, The Sympathizer is a gripping story about a double agent and the trouble he gets himself into.
Patricia Reed (Líder e Mentor de Crescimento Tecnológico)I'm currently reading "The Sympathizer", which has won many awards, been a NYT bestseller, AND recommended by Bill Gates. It is unusual as it is written by a Vietnamese American, and I don't remember ever reading anything that talked about a that particular immigrant experience. It is funny, enlightening, and serious all at the same time- a rare accomplishment.
The winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, as well as six other awards, O Simpatizante is the breakthrough novel of the year. With the pace and suspense of a thriller and prose that has been compared to Graham Greene and Saul Bellow, O Simpatizante is a sweeping epic of love and betrayal. The narrator, a communist double agent, is a “man of two minds,” a half-French, half-Vietnamese army captain who arranges to come to America after the Fall of Saigon, and while building a new life with other Vietnamese refugees in Los Angeles is secretly reporting back to his communist superiors in Vietnam. O Simpatizante is a blistering exploration of identity and America, a gripping espionage novel, and a powerful story of love and friendship.
