I was reading this book for a research project in English and I was not expecting to be so touched by it I was expecting a boring story written about a boring topic Instead I found myself reading one of the best books I had read in a long time It was touching thought provoking and perspective changing Escaping the Tiger by Laura Manivong is a book that showcases family loyalty and values and I would highly recommend it to anyone Escaping the Tiger is set in the 1980s It is the story of a Lao family trying to flee the Communist government in their homeland in hopes of a better life The story is often told from the viewpoint of Vonlai the young boy in the family The reader is taken through the entire journey that refugees face starting with escaping the homeland The story starts right in the middle of the action with Vonlai s family fleeing Laos They flee across the Mekong River into Thailand Once in Thailand the reader receives a detailed explanation of life in a refugee camp It goes through the conditions the guards and the abuse all seen the way a child would experience it Reading this book makes the reader realize what a terrible process refugees go through all the struggles they face every day The characters make new friends new enemies and really learn who they can trust Being a spectator to this horrific process is heart wrenching By Vonlai s standards life in the Na Pho refugee camp is worse than his old life in Laos He doesn t completely understand why his family had to leave Vonlai finds himself missing his friends across the river but he does know that if his family can be relocated to a third country his life will be much better than it was before the move Another thing Vonlai doesn t understand is why there is so much ineuality in the camp Some people are treated better than others For example men who served in militaries that sided with Thailand were likely to be resettled uickly than other men Vonlai s family had some military background so Vonlai hoped that their family would be transferred to the United States uickly than others To pass the time in camp Vonlai played soccer on a field of rocks He made friends with whom he shared a deep bonding passion However none of his soccer playing friends compared to his relationship with the old man who sat under the tree whittling wood day in and day out This man is Colonel and Vonlai has a very tight relationship with him Colonel provides a lot of valuable insight into life in a refugee camp and provokes a lot of heart breaking thoughts Overall Escaping the Tiger is an amazing read It is everything that a reader could ask for in a book happiness tears romance and struggle I would very strongly recommend reading this book as Laura Manivong manages to turn a tough subject into an enticing book that you just can t put down
