Too Close For Comfort...

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

It was a fascinating and scary story to listen to especially in the political and global situations we are currently facing. It was a disturbing aspect, to say the least, that legally born US citizen could be perceived as threats to national security and become pawns in a political maneuver. It is a work of fantasy, but oh, so uncomfortably close to today's possible truth...
The writing style is a little different but in its slower pace well fits the ethnic group it portrays always methodical and pondering. The narration could have seemed also a little too monotonic but again I found it fitting to well represent the characters.
The ending was not my favorite part. It is hard to believe that a teenager could be turned into a hate and killing machine in such brief time. But maybe that is what I would like to think.
A book that will let you reflect on how quickly our real world can change.

Loved it

I really enjoyed the book. It is a powerful reminder of what could happen to us—as Americans—when we let our fears get the best of us. It’s scary to imagine an assembly center in this day and age at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. Or just the idea that you can even lock up an entire group of people for no other crime than being the “wrong” race or ethnicity.

In the book, we follow Henry Chin, who was an ex-military guy turned pharmacist. He’s been trying to live low and raise a hapa daughter after a war traumatic war experience in Panama. However, when they start rounding up Chinese Americans, he refuses to comply. He takes his daughter and together they make a run for Canada through the Angeles Crest mountains—with the help of Henry’s army buddy.

Please note that I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review .
