5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning and gripping 30 July 2011
By M. B. Mulhall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A seriously amazing book on a topic I knew nothing about. Please don't shy away from it because it's free verse. The fragments, the clipped emotions and descriptions, somehow explain things better then a couple pages of flowing prose. It gives you that sense of urgency and fear that the characters are experiencing. The rush of emotions they are unused to. It doesn't hide behind anything.

I do feel the main character acts/speaks a little older than her age at times, she was raised differently than I and then goes through this horrid experience, so I can look past such a thing.

I hope the lack of reviews does not mirror how this book as sold, because it deserves to be read and shared with others. Pick it up. You won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars 1984 Verse! 8 October 2011
By Brent Shaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We read this book for our South Asian reading group as part of a collection of books themed around the 1984 Sikh genocide in India. I'm not one for verse or freewriting, but this book by Ms Osltlere was very much inspiring, captivating and extremely emotional. I actually enjoyed the read and think even those who don not quite enjoy verse or poetry will enjoy it just as much! If you're interested in what happened to this minority group of Sikhs in 1984 I would definitely add this book to the list, along with the other books we read (Night of the Widows by Eli Mann, All Indian Justice Committee by Grace Kaur, A Feast for Lambs by Jesse Thind, When a Tree Shook Deli by HS Phoolka). What I find astonishing is that after having done some research I don't think the Indian government has officially apologized for what they did to the Sikhs in 1984.

I bought this book for my niece but I ended up reading it myself too. We both loved it. It is written in prose. Very beautiful. Its a fairly quick read but intriguing and provides knowledge of recent Sikh history.

This book was very good and easy to read but very sad and depressing and kinda long but still very good and you'll want to know how it ends.
