Rezension
Der Sympathisant
von Viet Thanh Nguyen

Der erste Satz: »Ich bin ein Spion, ein Schläfer, ein Maulwurf, ein Mann mit zwei Gesichtern.« Vietnamkrieg (1955-1975), ein Bild aus meiner Kindheit und Jugend, Literatur und Filme in meiner Jugendzeit, immer aus der Sicht des weißen Amerikas. Und hier haben wir das erste Buch aus der Sicht eines Vietnamesen. Der Icherzähler bleibt namenlos. Seine Mutter ist Vietnamesin, sein Vater war irgendein Franzose, eine Sache, die ihn hier wie dort nie dazugehören lässt. Die letzten Tage vor dem Fall von Saigon lassen den Roman beginnen. Der General und eine Auswahl von Menschen dürfen fliehen, der CIA und die US-Soldaten machen sich vom Acker, auf der Flucht vor dem Vietcong. Die NLF, die »Nationale Front für die Befreiung Südvietnams«, schwenkt längst die blauroten Fahnen. Der Icherzähler gehört zum engen Stab des Generals, aber er ist gleichzeitig ein Spion des Vietcongs, erfährt der Leser. An jeder Ecke betteln Menschen, mit auf die Flucht genommen zu werden, Straßen und Flughafen sind überfüllt mit Flüchtlingen, ein Luftangriff auf die Air-Base lässt viele Menschen sterben und in letzter Minute kann der General starten, sich mit seiner kleinen Truppe retten. Der Krieg ist vorbei. Circa fünf Millionen Vietnamesen sind tot.

I picked up a few books from the library yesterday because you can never have too many books for a long weekend 🤗

I finished Things Fall Apart yesterday already, posting a short review soon. I am definitely looking forward to reading the rest of them!

Currently going through a busy season with work and School but I’m grateful that I’m getting things done ✅. ☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️
I’m picking up #thesympathizer by #VietthanhNguyen .
I’m falling in love with his writing ✍️ ☕️❤️; also it’s a story about spies, war, politics, loyalty, relationships, immigration, and all the good stuff. {my version of a synopsis 🤷‍♀️ 🤷‍♀️ 😅} . .

The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen✔️

I wasn't very familiar with Vietnam and the Vietnam war but I felt that The Sympathizer offered good solid information on the post war, without pointing fingers. Not only that, the book explores other topics such as race, culture, politics and morality all without being too heavy for the reader. I loved the story structure; we begin at the middle, with our biracial unnamed captian writing with confession and once we reach the present, we move forward. The Captain, half Vietnamese and half French, has chosen the the path of communism wanting freedom and Independence and after the fall of Saigon immigrates to California where he continues aa "sleeper" agent.
There is a lot I want to say about this book. Nguyen has an incredible talent in creating believable characters and creating a story that deals morality and race without taking sides. The story and characters were consistent from beginning to end and the ending, the ending was perfect.
