for the full moon that had licked her clean The rabbit with its innocence its youthfulness its long bright ears that hear everything in the realms of both the living and the dead Rabbit because the world is full of rabbits Rabbit because by sheer force of numbers the rabbit walks among us unnoticed but pandemicBorn in the war ravaged country of Vietnam Rabbit is pulled from the earth from her dead mother s body and is blessed or perhaps cursed would be appropriate with the gift of hearing the voices of the dead This is not just Rabbit s story it is a narrative of the Vietnamese people their suffering and tremendous loss over the course of a complex history We learn of this history through those voices that come to Rabbit as she traverses her country with her makeshift family a group of individuals that flee to find a place of greater safety a place to try to begin a life that has some semblance of stability The voices are those of the living with whom she travels and meets along the way but also the voices of the dead that have perished during the times of French colonialism the Vietnam War and during the period of post war reconstruction It is a tragic story and one that will make you ache as you learn the misery of these people and this country Everywhere the world was charred The bones of trees stood like primordial signposts warning of pestilence and death In the moonlight the earth looked blackened like the skin of a fishThe author uan Barry is a poet and her writing is sublime I truly got wrapped up in the beauty of her words despite the grim truth and sorrow of which she writes Magical realism can be hit or miss for me and here it was definitely a hit I loved the way the use of a mystical element helped to illuminate the history of Vietnam It felt like the dead were literally screaming for recognition for their unheard stories to be told Those stories are important and ones with which I was not previously familiar My understanding of Vietnam history is uite basic and this book shed a lot light on the subject and has piued my interest in learning I had a bit of trouble reading this as the timeline would shift back and forth in time This was partly due to my own ignorance regarding the history so I just needed to focus on the year as given by the author before each section of the book But often within a section there would be a flashback to a previous time so concentration is reuiredI recommend this book to anyone that enjoys historical fiction and doesn t mind a bit of magical realism and those that savor a very lyrical
