Free read Ù Never Fall Down å PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free This National Book Award nominee from two time finalist Patricia McCormick is the unforgettable story of Arn Chorn Pond who defied the odds to survive the Cambodian genocide of 1975 1979 and the labor camps of the Khmer RougeBased on the true story of Cambodian advocate Arn Chorn Pond and authentically told from his point of view as a young boy this is an achingly raw and powerful historical no general piece of advice to anyone who approaches the blank box with the intention of writing a pleasing to the eye review do not read one of mike reynolds reviews first it will make you walk away from the computer in utter discouragement arn chorn pond was a young child when the khmer rouge decided to unleash on cambodia a mayhem that resulted in the extermination of one uarter of the population notice that the khmer rouge were themselves cambodian since the book is told from arn s point of view in the first person and arn is a young child you don t get an explanation for why this madness happened so for that i remand you to wikipedia where i will go myself after i finish writing this review as a grown up and a survivor arn has been and continues to be an activist on behalf of his country and his people which i understand are uite some way from healing the internecine genocide happened in the mid 70s patricia mccormick found him interviewed him for two years did a ton of supplemental research then wrote this book in arn s own voice arn never mastered english so the book is in broken english i tend to have little patience for westerners who tell other peoples stories i figure those other peoples can tell their own stories and the orientalizing and ogling comes across as invariably pornographic to me not this time although she put her own name as the sole author mccormick acknowledges implicit co authorship with arn chorn pond in the back flap mostly though the book is so sparse so short so perfectly distilled you feel there is no pleasure in mccormick s writing except insofar as she can reproduce arn s voice and this voice gosh this voice is amazing truly genuinely amazing i have always been lousy at learning history but i figure that one can learn history from stories people tell you and from stories you read in novels i know something now about the cambodian genocide i know something about the unspeakable trauma of child soldiers i know something about what it means for a kid who has killed killed killed to be brought to america and asked to be an american kid i know something about the terrible violence that comes not only from forcing children to kill but also from forcing them to go back to being children and behaving as such these children have wielded unconscionable power these children have led platoons these children have made terrible open eyed clear minded choices these children have survived unimaginable conditions through smarts cunning and a great capacity for reading people and circumstances there children are geniuses and experts you can t take a child like that and stick him in an american high school this book has made me think about our desperate compulsion to infantilize children so that children have to find ways to be the much mature beings they are in ways that are hidden from us children it seems are asked from very early on to be multiple creatures creatures that please their parents understanding of childhood their teachers understanding of childhood the commercial world s understanding of childhood and finally and hopefully their own understanding of themselves i got all this from reading Kathryn Bond Stockton s The ueer Child or Growing Sideways in the Twentieth Century and then reflecting back on my own bedraggled childhood in the light of stockton s book and of my own thinking back this book was immensely poignant to me also it s gorgeous i am now a patricia mccormick fan
